AceShowbiz - Teresa Giudice's husband Joe Giudice has won another battle amid his ongoing deportation battle. Joe has been granted approval to continue living in the U.S. while the case is ongoing.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the United States Court of Appeals for The Third Circuit has ordered that the husband of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" star will stay in the country amid the deportation battle.
"The petitioner's motion for a stay of removal is granted. The requirements for granting a stay have been satisfied. … The temporary stay of removal previously granted is vacated as no longer necessary," state the documents. "Petitioner's unopposed motions to seal Exhibit C to the Moseley Declaration and to amend/correct his stay motion are granted."
Following the approval, Joe's attorney reveals that they are "grateful that the Court has granted the stay." The attorney adds, "Joe looks forward to continuing this fight to the very end. There is nothing more important to him than returning home to his wife and kids."
Joe's legal team isn't going to stop fighting to make Joe avoid being deported following his release from prison earlier this year after serving three years behind bars on bankruptcy fraud among others. He was immediately transferred into ICE custody and is currently awaiting a final decision from the immigration court.
The happy news arrives after it was revealed in April that his deportation was temporarily delayed. "This order is issued in accordance with the Standing Order of the Court dated August 8, 2015," stated the documents. "The foregoing motion is temporarily granted; removal is stayed until such time as the Court can consider the motion for stay of removal."
Both Joe and Teresa were indicted in 2013 for allegedly hiding their fortune in a bankruptcy filing. In 2015, Teresa was sentenced to 15 months in prison for fraud, though she was released after serving 11 months. Meanwhile, Joe was released after he completed a 41-month prison sentence in March for mail, wire and bankruptcy fraud.
