Visa Overstay (Istanbul)

Hello,

By the time I leave Turkey, I'll have overstayed my visa by 50 days. My work visa has been applied for and is in the process, but I don't think it'll be done in time. Is there paperwork that can be obtained showing the border guards that my work permit is in the process? Otherwise, when I leave, I imagine I'll have to pay a fine, but will I be banned from coming back to Turkey? I believe a lot of the laws have changed as of last April, and from what I see, I won't be... but I'm scared that I'm missing something. Any advice is much appreciated :)

Thanks!
