    Answered . 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.
