you have to file based on your status as of 12/31/17 so it was right that she filed single for 2017 in 2018, when she files her 2018 in 2019 she will need to file as married filing separate or married filing joint with you applying for an ITIN

This is not an immigration issue.  It is not proper to file as single, when married, but many do it with no negative impact on the immigration process.  Once you are here, she can file an amended return to lower her tax expense.  There is no penalty for overpaying US federal or state income taxes.  Relax.
