Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.

Illegal or illegal, filing requirements are same. If you are married your filing options are married filing jointly (claiming your combined income) or married filing separate. You will need request adjustment of status for him/her and he/she will need to request ITIN for filing.
