Friend of mine just received a decision from BIA where BIA

Friend of mine just received a decision from BIA where BIA denied her asylum application but remanded her case back to the trial judge regarding her application for withholding of removal. While her BIA was pending (took almost 5 years to issue BIA decision) she got married to US citizen. If she is granted withholding of removal can her status be adjusted later for the path to permanent residency because she already is married to US citizen.

She also has two US citizen kids four and eight year old . And they are going to stay here in US,not going to travel with us they are staying with my mother in United States . Her criminal record is absolutely clean nothing negative no immigration issues , no deportation or any removal order. Only thing she has overstayed her visa since 2006. Can you please let me know how confident we should be while we travel. Also two year foreign resident rule does not apply on her 2006 J1 visa.Thank you .
