If you're concerned about your husband's status you should first speak to an immigration lawyer - but if you have a permanent green card you're OK.

If you get divorced before your husband becomes a citizen and he is here illegally he will not be eligible for citizenship. However, a divorce right after he becomes a citizen will look like potential immigration fraud. I believe you need to worry about yourself and your interests which appear to get a divorce now. I highly advise consulting with counsel.
