In order for your father to file for you for a green card, you have to be legitimated and those laws depend on where you were born or the country of birth.
Some countries will legitimate you just by having your name on the birth certificate. Other countries only allow legitimation if your parents are married. If you are from a country where you can only legitimate by being married, then unfortunately they probably will not be able to sponsor you.

If you have legitimization and evidence of a father/child relationship, than yes, your father can sponsor you for a green card regardless of whether your parents were married.
