This is an Immigration issue, not a military law issue, so I am reposting your question.

Just the same way like anyone else. You fill out the forms, provide all the information, and file them with USCIS.

As my colleague said, there is nothing different about a visa overstay Adjustment of Status for the spouse of someone in the military. Processing times vary, but are currently about 3 months for the work permit and advance parole, and about 5 months until the 1-130/I-485 interview. You will still have to demonstrate the good faith of the marriage and no ground of inadmissibility of your husband, demonstrate financial ability to support your husband, fill out biographic forms, etc. etc. You may want to consult an attorney to get clarity on the procedure, even if not to represent you and your husband completely.
This general information does not establish any attorney-client relationship. There may well be factors not mentioned in the question which could and should be addressed in an attorney consultation.
