webeen married for 7 years we have two kids but in able for her to returned to the us she must obtain a visa because she over stayed
You can file a petition on her behalf. If she overstayed over 180 days she would have a penalty between 3 to 10 years in which cannot return to the United States. If she has been outside of the United States less than the duration of her penalty she will need a waiver, and you will need to show hardship for the waiver to be approved. Consult with an experienced immigration lawyer to review the merits of your case.
Are you saying your spouse had a green card and stayed out of the US too long? Or that she was in the US and overstayed her visa? Or something else? Either way you can petition for her (provided you are US citizen or permanent resident) but more information would be needed to give you a more specific answer.
Assuming you are a U.S. Citizen or lawful permanent resident you can petition for your spouse. However, depending upon how long she overstayed in the U.S. she may need a waiver of inadmissibility to return. Consult with an experienced immigration attorney who can advise you what to expect and the best way to proceed.
