My girlfriend lived in the US illegally as a kid but voluntarily left before she was 18. There are records of her living in the US (high school year book and records) but she only lived here until she was 17. Will that keep her from getting a green card through regular application or through marriage?

There are several grounds for inadmissibility. We suggest you to consult with an immigration attorney to discuss the details of your girlfriend's case.

Unlawful presence under the age of 18 should not affect her eligibility to immigrate.
Although she did not accrue unlawful presence for certain grounds of inadmissibility, there is a 10 year permanent bar if she accrued over one year in the US, then departed, and then reentered without inspection. You should discuss in detail with an immigration lawyer before you file.
