Originally Answered: My husban is being deported to el salvador?
Hey Twilight, I'm sorry to hear that your husband got deported, and not long after your daughter was born. Coming to El Salvador with an 8 month old should concern you, not just for reasons of violence here in E.S. but also financially - it is not easy to find work in this economy. If you are very fluent in English you can probably get a job at a call center or teaching English (In San Salvador, not San Miguel). I hope to heck your husband can speak English and/or has at least his bachillerato (H.S. degree) or better. If not, tell him to get his butt in school NOW and no excuses, they have programs here in El Salvador where you can even work during the week and go to classes on Saturdays and finish it in a year. I say this b/c all the ads for work that I see in El Salvador for anything decent require that. Also have him check into a program called "Bienvenido a Casa" which is on the street called Juan Pablo Segundo. They help deportees get training to find work. He can even sign up for a computer networking course with them. Here is an article on them I found:
For Yourself, I'd check out this website with a wealth of information on immigration situations like yours.
I dont know why your husband is being deported, but if it's for a felony, it will be difficult to bring him back to the states. I hope to god he didn't do anything that had to do with a) physical violence, or b) drugs, because either of those two basically shut the door on him returning to the states for a long time, if ever. Not to mention if he's that kind of guy, you don't want to be hanging around him anyway!
If your husband is a stand-up kind of guy, who is of good character and hardworking, he'll bust his a** in El Salvador to put things together to make a life for you. Before you come DOWN to El Salvador, have him scope everything out and determine if he can work there to at least support himself, or YOU will be supporting him when you get down here, which will be very challenging as you have a small child. (Believe me on this, I support my husband, and have been for over 3 years because the best he can make down here is $250 a month and he refuses to work close to 50 hrs a week for such a pittance. He owes me big time and knows he better take care of my butt when we get back to the U.S as a unit). Trying to live in El Salvador with your husband is a long, hard road and can make your marriage very difficult to stay in.
Investigate and Research until your hands get chapped from typing on the computer doing searches. Save big time money - I'm talking $20,000 or more. If you can't save it, you may not want to come down here - you'll need that money, trust me, it's not THAT cheap down here, and you have a kid to worry about.
If you want your marriage to work, DO NOT live with your in-laws in San Miguel. No way, no how. We did that for 10 months in the boondocks here, and I almost left my husband twice. Learn vicariously from my experience.
Your ability to live in El Salvador depends on both your character and your husband's. Make sure he's worth it before uprooting. Look into the opportunities for work for both of you in San Miguel and San Salvador. You must both have a way to make a viable living down here for this to work.
