If you are a USC and your husband is here in the US with a valid or expired visa, then file for an adjustment of status. Assuming you are not a USC and he is not here, then you want to file form I-130 visa petition (www.uscis.gov click on Forms) and wait for it be approved. Then that visa approval will be sent to the National Visa Center who will contact you with an information and application packet at the appropriate time. In the meantime, you will have to look at the USDOS Visa Bulletin from time to time to see where he is (will be) in the process of immigrating to the US at the following link: http://www.travel.state.gov/visa/bulletin/bulletin_5452.html. It is pretty self-explanatory. He will be in the F2A category. When his visa becomes available the NVC will contact you. The NVC will ask you to provide certain documents and pay the appropriate fees for the Immigrant Visa and Affidavit of Support in addition to completing Form DS-260 on the internet. Just follow the instructions they will provide you with and your husband will eventually be issued a visa. It can be a bit stressful and at times complicated. So, if you find it to be all of those things then contact competent counsel to help you with all of it. Good luck!
