A U.S. citizen parent (father in this case) can petition for his married son or daughter and their spouse, but not the son-in-law independently, therefore I do not see how your father can sponsor your husband unless he is also sponsoring you. This type of family petition falls within the 3rd preference category and as such the priority date waiting period is currently 10 years.

If you are a U.S. Citizen petitioning for your spouse, it will take between 4-12 months.
