US spouse visa after VWP/ESTA overstay

Back in 2017 I overstayed my ESTA - the reasoning isn’t important so I won’t go into it, but the overstay was by around two months, so not long enough to trigger an automatic bar on entry to the US for 3 or 10 years.

I haven’t been or tried to go back to the US since. I married an American in 2018 and we lived in England. Now we’ve applied for a US Spouse visa for me and it’s currently being looked at by USCIS. We only applied in March 21 so we’re obviously very early in the process. I’m curious to know whether this visa will be given a straight rejection because of the previous overstay?

I’m hoping that given it was 4 years ago it might not be an automatic rejection, but if so then rules are rules and we’ll just have to live with it.

Thanks :)
