    Answered . You should speak to an immigration attorney who practices US immigration law. He may be able to obtain a waiver so that he does not have to wait the full ten years. Your attorney will help you to obtain a copy your fiance's immigration file so you can know if there are any other issues that need to be dealt with besides his previous unlawful presence and deportation.
