In 2007 I entered USA with K1 visa, never got married since ex-fience did not want to drag me into his debts (he served in Iraq and while he was there his business got almost bankrupt). Eventually I left USA in 2008 with 11 months of everstay. I am married now and the company I work for is planning to send me to a business trip to USA. I've heard about 3-years ban and technically it ended in 2011.
Please advise if there is any chance in getting B1 visa with the history I have. Even if I get it, are there chances that I will be returned home on the border?
Thank you in advance!
There is a chance , but it up to the discretion of the Consular officer. You should hire a attorney to help you provide the correct documentation to help the chance for approval

The chances of your obtaining a B-1 visa will be determined by your ability to establish that you have a foreign residence you have no intention of abandoning. The fact that you previously overstayed will make this an uphill, though not necessarily insurmountable battle.
Consult with an experienced immigration attorney who can review the specific facts of your case and advise you how best to proceed.

That will depend on you being able to demonstrate to the satisfaction of the consular officer that you have non-immigrant intent.
