I have a son in law who is in the country illegally. What steps can we take to get him papers?
He's a hard worker and provides for my daughter and their two children. It is just hard to be comfortable because there is always the chance that he will be deported. He has to work cash jobs (farm work) because he doesn't have a green card. What can we do and how long does it take? Also, anyone know about what it costs to do all of this?

Prepare for a long process, a lot of paperwork, a lawyer and a lot of money. We spent over $10,000 to get our son in law legal....and it took over 5 years. Open your wallet and prepare to travel a long journey.

He has to return to his country, wait 10 years, and reapply for a visa.

Send him home... Arrange for him to go to the embassy and request a green card. If he gets caught, he will lose the ability to come back here for ten years. Bite the bullet and send him back.

Get an immigration attorney. Your daughter will have to prove hardship if he is deported. My friend just completed the process and his wife got her green card. It took a long time and cost about 10,000 in attorney fees. Good luck.

I agree that you should contact a lawyer. I also agree that you should start this process as quickly as possible. I am not sure if he would have to leave the Country or not but if he gets caught here before the process has at least started then he will be deported and banned... More
