Your husband, if he is a US citizen, can still apply for your permanent residence as long as you both intend to permanently reside in the United States.

You may require an I-601 waiver if you overstayed illegally for more than 1 year in the United States.

You may find more information about the immigration visa process as well as the I-601 waiver here:
