Legal Question in Immigration Law in Washington


In November of 2006 my husband recieved his green card. 4 months later, his father died and his mother was ill.He returned to his country for a visit-that has turned into almost 2 years..Upon trying to return,were finding out that the green card has expired and he should have filled a re-entry before leaving..however it's a little to late for that.So how do I proceed? I was the one who sponsored my husband.

Re: re-entry

You may need to file for him again (unfortunately). You can assume that they consider his green card abandoned because of the delay and his failure to file a re-entry permit. You could show his father's death certificate but even then it cannot justify 2-years abroad. This is assuming the facts that you've given me.
