You can make the selection but it is a little complicated. Nonresident aliens married to U.S. citizens or residents can choose to be treated as U.S. residents and file joint returns. For more information, refer to Nonresident Alien Spouse  for more about how to make the first-year choice for your spouse to be treated as a U.S. resident alien.
