Avvo is no substitute for a full blown consultation with an immigration lawyer, which is exactly what you need. I would strongly recommend that you consult an immigration lawyer, whether myself or one of my colleagues.

I agree that you need to consult with a competent immigration lawyer. There are more questions to determine your eligibility for your husband to petition for you, such as if your relationship is bona fide and ways to document it, if you have had any negative criminal or immigraton issues in the past, how you entered the U.S. exactly, if you've ever left the U.S., etc. Each attorney has their own consultation fee, if any. I highly recommend you find a competent immigration attorney. Some helpful ways to determine if a lawyer is competent in immigration law is to look if they're licensed from a state bar as they should be, a member of different groups such as AILA and their work experience.
