can my husband fix my immigration status if hes a u.s permanent resident?
He can sponsor you, but it will take between 2 and 3 years, and you will not be eligible for a provisional waiver in the U.S. It would be better for him to become a U.S. before he sponsors you for a green card.

He can petition for you right now if he is a permanent resident. If you came legally and maintain your status, you can adjust in the US. If you fall out of status, he would need to become a citizen for you to adjust. If you came without inspection, your eligibility to adjust would depend on too many factors to discuss here. I suggest you consult with an attorney to learn exactly what steps you and your husband can take to help you become "legal."
