Last week, Joe Giudice was granted permission to be sent to his native Italy while he awaits a final decision in his ongoing deportation case. That ruling was just the latest in what's been years and years of legal matters for The Real Housewives of New Jersey husband and his family.
In short, a judge ordered that Joe be deported back to Italy, where he was born, in October 2018. His appeal of that ruling was denied in April. He has been staying in "a facility in western Pennsylvania, which houses immigration detainees" since he was released from federal prison in March after completing his 41-month prison sentence for mail, wire, and bankruptcy fraud, as Joe was granted permission to stay in the U.S. in May amid his ongoing deportation case.
The video above breaks down every turn the Giudices' legal matters have taken over the years, including how Teresa Giudice has been handling the matter and raising their four daughters following her own jail time in 2015.
Teresa previously opened up about how detrimental it would be for her daughters to not have their father at home if Joe does, in fact, get deported in a video exclusive to Bravo Insider, below.
"If he gets deported, he'll never be able to go to their graduation[s], celebrate their birthdays, anything," Teresa shared. "He's going to be missing out on so much. The girls adore their father and no child should have to go through what my daughters are going through. They should have their daddy here."
Teresa's journey will be documented on RHONJ, which returns to Bravo for Season 10 on Wednesday, November 6 at 8/7c. See what this season has in store, below.
