      There may be others but one is that you entered the country on a valid visa and married a USC who can sponsor you.

        C1 was the visa that was use to enter the country. The visa is valid but only for the purpose of transit through the country and not to enter the country.

                  Well, what INA Section 245(i), that was reenacted via LIFE Act of 2000, had to say needs revisiting. Please pay special attention to the phrase: "... permitting certain aliens who were otherwise ineligible for adjustment to pay a penalty fee for the convenience of adjusting status without leaving the US."

                      245(i) is dead....and even if it was available, it does not apply to C1/D visa holders...

                        It may now be dead but the immigration benefit it entails still is not. The keyword I used of course was '245(i) coverage' (or grandfathering). And coverage means that the 245(i) qualifiers have been met by the alien for the January 14, 1998, or met and maintained for the December 21, 2000 cut-off dates. And its provisions don't exclude C or D visa holder entrants or overstayers. Two things: either you don't know or you haven't tried. Either way doesn't render the law not applicable.

                            Is C for crewmen, are we talking of those who jumped the ship?
                            If so SOM12 is right, INA specifically states that those people can't adjust under current law (they could decades ago, heard of Italians who immigrated here that way back in the years).

                              yes, the "C" is the crewman...and they cannot adjust status, whether admitted lawfully for 29 days or they jumped off the boat....next case?
