If your spouse is a U.S. Citizen you are eligible to file for your Green Card here in the US since you last entered with a H2B visa. Your spouse needs to file an I-130 petition and your need to file an I-485 application. Both petitions/applications also require that you file other forms and documents. You should review the instructions for each of the forms to determine what you will have to file, what documents are required, and what are the filing fees.
