Yes, indeed an inadmissibility waiver based on "extreme hardship" to you will be necessary to be filed. It is not as simple as "filling a form" and asking for the "perdon" (if only life were that simple..) If you really want the waiver to be an approvable one, you better hire a competent, experienced and licensed US immigration attorney to help you put together that waiver.
People who enter the US without papers and remain for over 6 months trigger a bar to re-entering the US with a visa once they leave the US. If your husband was in the US without papers for 6 months to one year, he would have a three year bar. If he was in the US for more than one year, then he would have a 10 year bar. So, in essence, the date he LEFT the US is the important date to determine whether or not he will need a waiver.
You should speak with an immigration attorney to further understand the situation and determine your options.
