My husband came to the US with his parents when he was 5 years old but never gained citizenship. As an adult he was charged with distribution of cocaine. His lawyer advised him to take a plea bargain instead of going to trial but he didn't warn him of the consequences of having a felony and not being a US Citizen. It is now 8 years later and we have 3 children (1 is mine, 1 is his and 1 is ours together). He has not had any other legal trouble other then minor traffic tickets since. Is there anything we can do to appeal the conviction at this point so he can seek legal status?
