I have a not valid for employment ssc and that i've used to work. Will that affect the status adjustment process at all?

I overstayed my visitor visa and got married to an U.S. citizen. I’m going to send the paperwork for a greencard. I've paid taxes every year under that social security number

Spouses of US citizens are forgiven for their unauthorized employment, and they would not penalize your use of the limited social security card alone. However, if you have ever made a false claim to U.S. citizenship in applying for a job, this could be an issue.
