    Answered . If your spouse is in the U.S. without proper documentation, when he leaves, he may not be able to re-enter legally for a long time.

    Nevertheless, if you are traveling to a foreign country, the consulate or embassy for the country you are traveling to will let you know what type of document he will need.

    You should consult with an immigration attorney before you travel if you plan on living in the U.S. with your spouse.

    Answered . Your scenario seems fraught with peril, and I would suggest that you immediately contact an immigration attorney to discuss your options. The real answer to your question cannot be given without receiving additional facts. Please consult with an immigration attorney PRIOR to leaving the country.
