If your spouse has established domicile in the US you may be eligible. This means, you and he have a permanent place to stay, bank accounts here, other family ties here, his job (even if a overseas employer) will allow him to be in the US (not just visit the US). Also, he has taken steps to end his ties to his other home country (closing bank accounts, ending lease or selling property in the other country etc). You should talk to a qualified immigration attorney to see what your options are.
