Hi i'm 22 years old and i want to enlist in the Navy. I got recently married, my husband had a visa and he overstayed. It expired about 5 months ago. Will his legal status affect my enlistment or cause him to get deported ?
Your spouse's status should not affect your ability to enlist in the Navy. Marriage will not cause your spouse to be deported.

No, your spouse's "out of status" immigration status will not affect your enlistment in any way, shape or form, nor cause him to be "identified, found" and get "deported". You can rest assured of that.

No your husband's overstay should not have any effect. A visa overstay is not a good idea but is not currently a high priority for deportation.
You should file for a marriage visa for him before you enlist. Then he can become a legal permanent resident as soon as possible. In the current climate that would be the wisest path. I would like to be among the first to thank you for your service.
