Customer Question

My wife entered the US with a permit she got at the border when she was 17 her father was dying in a hospital. He survived but needed help with everything she ended staying past the days permitted. I met her we dated for a couple of years and got married. I filed for her green card but we dont have any proof of her legal entry and havent been able to get any. Now she has her appointment and we dont know what to say
