You submit form I-130. Once that is approved, you submit form I-601a with evidence of extreme hardship to you unless your husband is given permanent residence. Finally, your husband is interviewed for a green card at a US consulate in hs home country.

You will need to file the I-601A waiver for him eventually. The process is often complicated and they have denied people for have similar crimes. I would seek out an attorney to ensure you do not have delays in processing.
