Immigration Issues/legal residency

Question
I have a friend who is married to a man that entered the country illegally 10
years ago.  They have been married for almost five years and have two children.
My friend and both of their children are US citizens.  What can they do to get
her husband residency?


Answer
Since he entered illegally he is not eligible to get his green card interview in the States unless he had something pending with Immigration beofre 4/30/2001. If he did not he can only process abroad but if he leaves the country he is subject to a 10 year bar and would need a pardon. The pardon would take 6-12 months to get. If they give it to him he can come back. If not he has to stay out for 10 years.
