I am assuming that you are a United States citizen. If you husband entered the United States with a visa and he doe snot have criminal record you can petition for him and apply for his permanent residence all in one step. You should contact an immigration attorney so that they can review all of your documents and, at the very least, explain the process to you.
First step - File I-130.
Depending on his status and how he entered the US, 2nd step, which is to file for Adjustment of Status, could also be filed simultaneously with Step One, but would need more details in order to be able to say for sure.
Requirements are also that you have a bona fide marriage, he is crime-free, you earn enough money to support him, and the list goes on and on.
If you are able, please consult with an attorney prior to filing anything with USCIS.
