Can my husband adjust his status?

Asked over 1 year ago - Dallas, TX

My husband came to the us with a visa and i94 overstayed for 7 yrs then we voluntarily moved back to mx in 2008. In 2010 he crossed the board with his valid visa (the visa expired in oct 2010). He crossed legally about 7 times until stopped by immigration where they investigated his visa and canceled due to the previous overstay. He was not deported and wa told he could apply for another visa. But I want to fix his papers will I be able to?? I am a us citizen we have been married since 2005 and have 3 children. He has never been deported or crossed illegally. He has no criminal history.

    Answered . You should hire an attorney to find out exactly what happened when his visa was cancelled. He might be able to immigrate but will need to apply for waivers. Speak to an experienced immigration attorney soon.
