A: Unless your husband has a visa he will not b e admitted into the USA.

Consular processing requires an immigrant visa application be completed online. I assume you have done this.

Adjustment of Status in the USA requires a pending I-485. I assume you have not filed an I-485.

A: If he is already here legally, you may file form I-864. But it takes a long time.
