we are married for two years and has to leave by jan what can i do???
i agree you need to consult with an immigration attorney before he leaves. If he will need a waiver to return it is always best to have him included in the psychosocial background interviews with a social worker and this is easier to do in person. Impossible to advise you on the process without knowing the full immigration and criminal hisotry for him and any equities to support a waiver if requried.

Your explanation is too simple for a very good answer. I can state you need immediatel legal counsel to determine if the matter can be reopened or your husband must depart and try to come back through what is called consulate processing. In the absence of more information, I'd just be speculating as to what happened and what are the possible solutions.
My cleeagues are accurate in their comments. You need to retain an experienced immigration attorney who can examine the complete immigration history of your husband and provide a legal opinion. Be careful of using a notario who will promise to fix his papers to be able to get back to the US but will only steal your money and make false promises. Good luck.
