Deerfield Beach, FL asked in Immigration Law for Florida

Q: How can i find out why my candian husband was denied entry to enter the U.S. i am a U.S citizen

I have not started his process as of yet. He used to live in the U.S went to school and had a greencard which he let expire and never renewed. Once he left to canada for a vacation he was not allowed back in 3 years ago. We filled out waivers and petions to get granted entry but today he tried to visit me and his daughter who he has not met and they denied his entry at customs in toronto.

A: A person may be denied entry for a number of reasons. More information is needed to determine why your husband was denied entry. Your husband should have been informed why he was denied entry.

I suggest you have an experienced immigration attorney look at his record.

A: You can file a CBP FOIA request (Customs and Border Protection) (Freedom of Information Act) to figure out what happened if your husband doesn't have the paperwork. If he does have the paperwork from when he was denied entry at the border, that may not be necessary. Either way you should consult with an attorney.
