It depends on how you have filed: USCIS, NVC, consulate processing? Did you file the I-130 and I-485 at the same time, is your husband in the US or outside the US? As you can see there are many factors in determining how long your case will take.

It usually takes about 4-6 months for the initial petition to be approved by USCIS and then another several months for the consular processing stage if your spouse is abroad.

    The adjudication process takes 6-8 months on average. Some cases take longer. If you have received no decision after 8 months. I would recommend you schedule an infopass appointment at the local field office.

    That seems unusual. Have you moved or anything? you can request information or an infopass appointment to see what's going on. You should likely be further along in the process.
