Recent F1 Visa questions

I recently got married in April but wife came to US on F1

I recently got married in April but wife came to US on F1 visa in Aug. When she went for visa interview, she filled it as single in marital status by mistake. She came to USA now. Can I claim her as wife and change marital my status to married? During green card processing, they ask for marriage certificate which will have April date from home country. So, how do we fix this issue? Also, does my wife need to inform on change of marital status now? Do we need to get married in USA to change marital status? We have marriage certificate from home country now but dated April. Thanks a lot in advance!

I was F1 visa student. I felt out of status and reinstated

I was F1 visa student. I felt out of status and reinstated twice. Once was because of my health and once was misunderstanding. And the last time I was visa terminated because my grade was 77% (lower than 80% requirement)The school told me to find another school who willing to do reinstatement for me. I looked around for 1 month and a half, and the new school told me I have to come back and get another SEVIS and VISA for this new school. So I did. And now the immigration agency told me during the interview that I overstayed 2 months as the reason to reject my visa, which I was not aware of. What can I do to get my visa accepted? Any advices on supporting documents or ways to reason with the agent so they can understand and approve my visa?
