My husband got approved for DACA, what is the process for me to petition my spouse? Do I file form I-130, I-601A,G-325A?

Asked 12 months ago - Salt Lake City, UT

My husband came to the US without inspection on January of 1994. He was 8 years old when he came to the US. He has a misdemeanor for giving a police officer a different name. He has 1 ticket for driving without a license. We got married on July 4th, 2009 and we have three daughters. I also homeschool our oldest daughter she is 4 because she was born prematurely. I am a full time student and homemaker and my husband works to support our family.
