It depends upon how she entered the U.S. If she entered legally with a visa and merely overstayed the duration of her visa, then you should be able to marry her and apply for her adjustment of status. This is assuming she did not enter on a K-1 visa through sponsorship by a different U.S. citizen fiancee.

You may find more information on the adjustment of status process here as well as my services:
