My husband has been deported to Jamaica for 10 years. What can I do to have him back in America?
If you are a U.S. citizen you can potentially petition for him as your spouse and then he will also need a waiver. To properly advise whether this is best though we will need a copy of the deportation order and to review any immigration and criminal history with him and determine if he may have any relatives here in the U.S. who could have conferred citizenship on him. If he does not have his deportation order and his criminal records we can assist him in obtaining these.
The answer depends upon the reasons your husband was deported as well as your immigration status. Assuming you are a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident, you could file an immigrant visa petition on behalf of your husband. Your husband would also need an application for readmission after deportation and most likely a hardship waiver. This is based upon hardship to you if he is not allowed to return within ten years. It is important to note not that not every person who has been deported is eligible to seek readmission and a hardship waiver. It is important that you speak to an attorney in more detail about the case before filing any petitions on your husband's behalf.
