Q: My husband has a warrant for his arrest and he can't appear in court physicaly. out of the US.is there a way to dismiss
we were advice not to enter the US unless the court drop the warrants because he will be picked up by ICE from the airport and maybe issue a deportation proceedings. Now his green card also expired last year while he still out of the US . it has been over 4 years out of the state,
Whats your advice?, Thank you
A: Seeking legal counsel who could represent him before the court on the charges against him could help in some way.
Unfortunately your husband’s problem has been compounded by his absence from the US for so long; he’s essentially abandoned his residence. There are ways to regain it; he should visit the US embassy or consulate that has jurisdiction or the area where he lives.
