The statement above is general in nature and does not constitute legal advice, as not all the facts are known. You should retain an attorney to review all the facts specific to your case in order to receive advise specific to your case. The statement above does not create an attorney/client relationship.
Answers on Avvo can only be general ones, as specific answers would require knowledge of all the facts. As such, they may or may not apply to the question.

The forms that are filed with a straight forward petition and adjustment of status for a legal entry are the following: I-130, G-325, G-325P, I-485, I-765, I-864. That said, it's important that you are 100% sure that you are eligible and that you know the proper procedure when filing even the most simple immigration case. Don't make the mistake of cutting corners on this. Good luck to you!
By illegal I am going to assume you overstayed your authorized time? What status did you enter on? Need a little more information to properly assist you. Generally speaking when someone enters with inspection and overstays their time and later is married to a US citizen you would have to file: I-130, I-485, I-765, G-325, Affidavit of Support, along with other documents. Please hire an attorney as Immigration Laws are very complex! Good luck!
