Based on the information you have provided, there is no valid option that will permit you to apply to adjust your status to U.S. Permanent Residency unless you marry a U.S. citizen in a valid, authentic marriage. Please schedule a consultation with an immigration lawyer for additional information and assistance.

If you have overstayed your non- immigrant status for over a period of three years, you will not be eligible to qualify for adjustment of status through an employment-based petition. You will need to explore other options for your resident status.
Green card through marriage to a U.S. citizen is your only option to remain in the United States, and that process will likely take more than 6 months once you initiate it.
