Does your husband have 10 years of legal employment in the U.S.? That is really the only way to file an I-864W (the waiver). Or is there some crime that he committed?

 

Or did he travel outside of the U.S. after you filed the I-485 but he did not have an approved I-131 Advance Parole?

Yes, that is correct. Persons with I-130s filed on or before November 8, 2004 can now use those I-130s to immigrate. So he has about a two year wait. You can take a look at this link to verify that:
