Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Teresa Guidice’s husband Joe will be deported to his native Italy after his prison sentence is over, People reports. A judge ruled on the matter in immigration court on Wednesday.

Teresa was not present. Joe has 30 days to appeal. “Based upon the law, I find you deportable and ineligible for any kind of relief,” the judge announced at the hearing, according to RadarOnline. “Mr. Giudice, no matter how this turns out, I wish you the best. I decided this case as a matter of law.”

Joe is serving a 41-month prison sentence for fraud, which he began in March of 2016. He is set to be released in 2019. Teresa has addressed the possibility of deportation before.

During January’s RHONJ the 46-year-old said: “I mean, Italy’s a beautiful place to live. I wouldn’t mind, you know, I’m just saying. Listen, whatever God has planned for me, that’s what’s going to happen. I will embrace it the best I can.”

Teresa served more than 11 months in prison for fraud. She was released on December 23rd, 2015. They share Gia, 17, Gabriella, 14, Milania, 12 and Audriana, 9.
