    if you have overstayed your visa for more than 180 days you are subject to 3 yr ban and if over a year then 10 yr ban.. there are loopholes but you need to consult a lawyer on that matter.

    I thought that even if you overstayed, as long that you are maried it doesn't matter, cause now you are legal ??!! am I wrong ?
    once you get married, doesn't that takes care of everything and the ins cannot do anything against you ?

    NO, If you are overstayed, then you have bar 3-10yrs. but bar will start only if you leave the country.
    You still have to take the waiver from these bars.

    best thing to do is wait till all your paperwork is done with INS to be able to leave the country and make sure you CAN LEAVE THE COUNTRY AND REENTER.

    Generally, peole who overstay for 180 days and more are subject to the 3/10 year ban. However, in my readings on immigration, I have encountered the statement that aliens with I-94s (Arrival and Departure Record, that small white paper that comes stapled in your passport, which tells you when you arrive and when you are supposed to leave the US) stamped with D/S or "Duration of Status" are NOT eligible for re-entry bars.

    I believe it is worth researching into this more, if it is your intention to fulfill the 2yr residence requirement.

    Otherwise, look into getting a waiver, so that you dont have to be separated with your wife anymore.

    Goodluck!

    Thank you for your replies!
    I read the law from 1996 about "Immigrants Responsibility Act" but din't find any information about --- are the spouses of American citizens exemt from 3/10 year ban? If it is YES, then this doesn't make any sense if I go home to fulfill my J-1 (I'm now on B-1) then i'll never see my wife again. I won't have any choices but stay here illegally. I'm deppressed I have a good engineering degree and good skills. I dreamed to work and live here, contribute into this country, have a house and live happy with my family. I went home before to work for my goverment because they financed me on my J-1. But the only thing i did on my job there was just drinking vodka and no job nothing. I'll go again if it so reqiered by INS but my time will be lost for nothin. I don't expect anything good there exept my family.
    I decided to go to INS office in Atlanta next week thay have public hours there. Is there any chances they will put me in jail for ovestaying my I-94 and then deport? I never broke any US laws before.
