It depends n how long she's overstayed and how apologetic she is. Often with overstayers, they have trouble applying for new visas and can face a 10 year ban. So I would say if she applies for a spouse visa, she's unlikely to get it.

Better than being deported or forcibly removed, but any overstay must be declared and it's up to UKVI to decide whether to approve a visa or not. Can't generalise as personal circumstances differ. What is true is they are trying to cut immigration and they are getting much tougher with immigration offenders.

I was informed by an immigration officer in March when we were denied entry into the UK as they felt I was not going to be visiting for two weeks, but living there..that if I was to be removed at the UKs cost, I would have to pay back all flights (at first class pricing) and fees before even considering a visa back into the country. That it always looks better to leave willingly and on my own finances. Not sure how true this is, or if it was just a tactic/comment on the immigration officers end.
I wasn't an over stayer, however we were denied a visa last year as I applied from within the UK and did not supply enough documentation for my husbands wages. We have now been waiting 7 1/2 weeks since delivery at Sheffield for our spouse visa with no end in sight.

Sonne31, they are saying that the spouse visa may or may not be accepted despite being married to a British person.

But do note that immigration officers are getting more strict, and overstaying is against the visa rules, so they may not get the spouse visa, it will also probably prolong your application's decision.

I have a friend, who overstayed for a couple years. But left voluntarily.
He has now come back into the Uk legitimately under Spouse Visa. (6 months later).

Not quite sure of the exact details, as he has kept things close to his chest. But in summary that's what happened. So it is not the end, if you voluntarily leave.
