You will benefit from your husband's 245(i) only if you adjust your status at the same time as he does, not before, not after. At the same time as he. This is because your marriage happened after he already qualified for 245(i). You are then an after-acquired spouse of a grandfathered person. If your husband qualified for 245(i) after April 1, 1997, then you will have to prove that you were physically present in the US on December 21, 2000. This is more so if you are not the principal applicant with the 245(i) protection (here your husband). Good luck!
