Good, that is great news. That makes things much easier for you two.
QUESTION: If we marry in Oct after the visa runs out but before she is required to leave the country what complication do we run in to.
ANSWER: NONE! She won't face any complications because a person who enters the US legally, but who falls out of status or overstays
her lawful status given by an immigration
official, and then marries a US citizen, is eligible to adjust her status to permanent resident. Any time spent out of status will be excused upon the filing of an approvalble I-485
, Application for Adjustment of Status.
So, as soon as you are divorced, you can get married. Once you submit the I-130 and she submits the I-485, all of her time out of status will be excused and she will be eligible to adjust her status even with the unlawful presence and overstay.
