I came here as an B2 visitor and my I-94 expired as of January of this year I am married to an USC that's why I am still here, but I haven't filed my documents as yet but I am wondering whats my Status at this present moment can someone please answer me. Thank you.
As others already have pointed out, marriage to a U.S. citizen does not, by itself, provide any immigration benefit, and since your authorized stay as a visitor has expired, you no longer are in status. Under current immigration law, however, that should not stand in the way of success in adjusting status to become a Lawful Permanent Resident (to get a "Green Card") through a marriage-based adjustment of status application.
