His status is a visitor as of right now and his I-194 will expire next month. Please let me know if he has to go back home?
Yes he will unless he can change his status to H-1B professional worker or L-1 intracompany transferee. The process of getting a green card through marriage to a permanent resident takes 4 years.
However, if you become a U.S. citizen, he can get his green card without leaving the U.S.
Yes, unless he adjusts his status to another nonimmigrant visa category or files an extension that is approved.
If you are eligible to be a U.S. citizen, you may apply for U.S. citizenship and once approved, file petition for your husband as an immediate relative. It will take a lot less time than waiting years for a visa number to be available under your green card status.
