If you live with your US spouse, then this is the proper application to proceed with. If there are problems in the relationship, you may self-petition in cases of abuse (physcial or mental). However, if this is not available then you need to look at an employment based sponsor. Thus, I would need more specifics about your situtaion to give any detailed advice.
