What is the best way (forms and procedures) to go to get my husband back to America? Deported in 1996 and came back.

Grandview, MO |

He worked with a lawyer that said he could get a TPS. So he started the process with the lawyer. Told immigration where he worked, gave them his address, and went down to give his fingerprints. About a year later immigration picked him up at his job. My husband had no chance of getting a TPS, but did what the lawyer told him to do. Thank You for your time.

He is from Honduras.

  1. Best answer

    Your husband may be under the "permanent bar" if he returned to the U.S. unlawfully after being deported. Of course, the dates when these event occurred matter a lot. You should consult with an experienced immigration attorney.

    (213) 394-4554 x0 Mr. Shusterman is a former INS Trial Attorney (1976-82) with over 35 years of immigration experience. His response to your question is general in nature, as not all the facts are known to him. You should retain an attorney experienced in immigration law to review all the facts in your case in order to receive advice specific to your case. Mr. Shusterman's statement above does not create an attorney/client relationship.

  2. It truly saddens me to hear stories like this. Your husband left over ten years ago. If he is still in Honduras you might be able to petition him. If he re-entered the US illegally after being deported, this changes things.

    I suggest that you contact an attorney to discuss your options.

  5. File a grievance against the attorney. Far to many immigrants get taken advantage of because attorneys know immigrants dontvwant to cause ripples that turn unto waves.
