I had a case like this back in 1992, and my client was able to prove he entered the US by contacting the airline that he used and he was able to obtain the passenger list for his flight. In addition, he obtained sworn affidavits (statements) from two friends of his who had picked him up at the airport that day. You should consider hiring an attorney and, maybe, a private investigator to track down the evidence you need to prove you entered the US legally.
Doing your own immigration work is kind of like doing surgery on yourself. Sure you can do it, but who would want to do it? Without the help of an attorney, you stand the chance of really messing up the process.

First, she needs to consult a divorce attorney in the state where she resides. Once she is divorced, she may marry you.

Please consult an experienced immigration attorney.
There are a few other ways: asylum, parole, and the lottery. Please don't forget that there are a lot of ways to get the greencard and that is why you should speak to an experienced immigration attorney.
If you have overstayed your M-1 Visa by 180 days or more, you are subject to a 3 year ban, and if you overstayed 365 days or more, you are subject to a 10 year ban on returning to the US. You should consult an experienced immigration attorney to discuss the circumstances of your case.

Because North American aboriginals aren’t considered immigrants, Jay Treaty natives don’t need a green card to cross the US border with Cananda, but they do qualify for a card.

No, the Dream Act has not yet passed. There is still some hope that it will pass. Keep an eye on what happens in Immigration Court over the next year in terms of Prosecutorial Discretion and, especially, to see if ICE grants more Deferred Action in cases that would have qualified under the Dream Act.

The U Visa section in Vermont is a special unit and, from my experience, they are efficient and quick. You should receive a receipt notice within 4 week of the day they received the application.
