Earlier this month, a judge ruled that Joe Giudice be deported to Italy following his prison sentence. The Real Housewives of New Jersey husband has 30 days following the October 10 ruling to appeal the decision. Teresa Giudice has noted in an interview with Entertainment Tonight that as of right now, she and her family are just focused on that process and "we are not even thinking about [whether we'd move to Italy] right now. We're going to take it day by day. We're going to take it one step at a time."
In that same interview with ET, Teresa also shared how the couple's four daughters are coping in the wake of Joe's legal issues. "It's been a lot for [them] to take this all in," she said. "It's sad for the children because they're innocent in all of this, and they're probably thinking, 'Why is this happening?' They're smart, so they get it. Like, 'OK, you made a mistake. He's doing what he has to do. Then now why isn't my dad coming home?'"
Joe is currently serving 41 months for mail, wire, and bankruptcy fraud at Federal Correctional Institution Allenwood in Pennsylvania. His sentence began in March 2016 at the FCI in Fort Dix, New Jersey and he was transferred at the end of 2017 to the Pennsylvania location.
As for any speculation about the future of their nearly twenty-year marriage, Teresa made it clear that they have no plans to divorce. "No. We're going to be a family, and we're going to fight this and get through this," she said.
