If anyone can help me in my situation.

I am in H1B and my husband applied for citizenship on Sep 2016. He had his biometric in October and after that, we haven't heard back anything yet. My question is:

1- For me to get Green card through him, do I have to file separate paper work or different application process?

2- Recently it is in news that some of the issue related to a background check(link below), do you think this will delay the process further, if so by how long?

Any help or input will be appreciated.

the whole naturalization process takes up to 5-6 months on average. I don't think you have been waiting too long. It is merely three months.

Yes, he needs to file a separate petition for you. He will get his citizenship and he can file. I guess it will be faster when he is a citizen.

He can file for you as a LPR, takes longer but would be upgraded as and when he becomes a Citizen.
