During a recent Q&A interview with Hollywood Life, Immigration Attorney Edward Shulman supplied legal expert answers to questions about RHONJ star Joe Giudice’s Deportation Appeal Denial and his legal fight to stay in the United States. In particular, Shulman answered questions relating to potential reasons for the BIA (Board of Immigration Appeals) denial, Mr. Giudice’s next steps, the length of time he could likely spend in ICE Detention fighting deportation, and the process of an Appeal with the Third Circuit with all the probable outcomes.

Shulman explained that the next step is that Mr. Giudice’s attorneys will need to request a “stay of removal,” which is essentially a temporary postponement of any action towards deportation, preventing the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) from carrying out an order of removal. He then outlined that Giudice’s legal team will next draft a formalized appeal with the Third Circuit Court of Appeals, a Federal Court with Appellate Jurisdiction. The Third Circuit Court of Appeals will then review his case and either grant or deny the appeal. Finally, Shulman explained that if the Third Circuit argues in Mr. Giudice’s favor by granting the appeal, the case will then be remanded to the Immigration Court, requiring the Immigration Judge to conduct a full merits hearing.

When asked about Mr. Giudice’s options, should the Third Circuit Court deny the appeal, Shulman explained that he could request a re-hearing, he could appeal it to the U.S. Supreme Court if they are willing to hear the case, or his wife, Theresa, could utilize her connection to Trump to try to procure a Presidential Pardon. Noteworthy is the fact that Theresa was recently spotted having dinner with Region II Head of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Lynne Patton, an official in the Trump Administration, to discuss a potential pardon.
