I overstayed my ESTA with 2 months, can I still get married to a US citizen? If yes, what the proper process would be and how can I get started and what papers will the courthouse ask if we get married and will they check my status if we register to get married? Thank you very much for help in advance.
yes you may marry even as an overstay. The process after marriage involves visa petition and adjustment of status. Since you arrived on an ESTA CIS has the authority not to adjudicate your adjustment application. However, this authority is not often exercised. You will be well served to obtain legal counsel in the process.
