If you came to USA illegally and no one had ever petitioned for you or your parents when you were a child -- now, if your US citizen husband petitions for you, you will have to go abroad to your home country to apply for a visa. Only those eligible for adjustment of status can apply for a 'green card' without having to leave the country. Please keep in mind that when you depart the USA, you will be banned for 10 years and a waiver will be required in addition to a visa.
