Joe Giudice’s legal problems now include immigration

Posted by Saul Steinberg | Oct 17, 2018 | 0 Comments

Many TV fans watch Real Housewives of New Jersey and are familiar with Joe Giudice and his wife, Teresa. Those who have been following the couple's recent legal situation may also be aware that Giudice is serving a 41-month prison sentence for bank fraud. To make matters worse, an immigration order has been issued that states he is to be immediately deported to Italy as soon as he is released from jail.

Giudice was reportedly brought to the United States with his parents when he was a 1-year-old. He grew to adulthood without obtaining U.S. citizenship. When he pleaded guilty to bank fraud, Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials filed a detainer regarding his current legal status.

While the news of deportation has caused the Giudice family great stress, Teresa's attorney has adamantly refuted rumors suggesting she will divorce her husband. Whether she and their children will move to Italy with him has not been decided. The family is hoping that Giudice would be able to secure a visa to live and work in the United States.

Many people are asking Teresa Giudice if she plans to leave the show in light of the fact that her husband is being forced to leave the United States when he gets out of prison. Cast and crew often travel abroad to shoot episodes, so it is possible that the Giudices will continue to work with Real Housewives of New Jersey, even if they reside in Italy. As for obtaining a visa, situations like this are often best addressed alongside experienced immigration law support.
