No. You need to be a US citizen for that. First get US Citizenship, then you can file for your fiancee. Good luck!

You cannot get a fiance visa unless you are a citizen. If you were married, you could apply for a visa as spouse, but as a green card holder there will be a wait time. If you become a citizen, you could apply for a fiance visa or if you got married he would be eligible for an immediate visa. Retaining an attorney to help with the process would be a good idea.

No you need to be a US citizen to petition for a fiance visa. You can petition for them for their green card through marriage but it takes between 3-4 years for a green card holder.
