    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."
