I am dating since spring 2011 a Cuban CU6 permanent resident who obtain his residency in 2008. We are planing to get married next month. I have entered the US in 2006 with tourist visa and overstayed. My question is will I be able to adjust my status and obtain permanent residency thru CAA as his spouse? Or I have to wait for him to become US citizen sometime in 2013?
Yes, after you marry him you will be able to enjoy the benefits of CAA. You will be able to adjust. Now, if he becomes a US citizen he will no longer be able to have the CAA benefits and will not be able to confer them to you or anybody else.

You can adjust now, which is best for you I would think, or when he becomes a USC you can also be petitioned to get a green card. Up to you - but best to take advantage of legal status asap.
