We need much, much, much more information.
Basically you are correct, the I-130 starts the process ... which will take about 2 years in the family 2A category. He will not be allowed to enter/stay in the US during that time.
Where is he?
Who sponsored you?
Why didn't you include him on your greencard papers?
