Voluntary Departure Attorney
San Antonio, Texas
Voluntary departure is the departure of an immigrant from the United States without an order of removal. The departure may or may not have been preceded by a hearing before an immigration judge.
If you are under the threat of deportation because you were charged with a crime or because you are out of status, you may be able to improve your future options through voluntary departure.
Seeking voluntary departure during your removal proceeding involves presenting the equities of your case to the immigration judge. You agree to leave the United States on your own terms and preserve the possibility of returning under more favorable circumstances. Voluntary departure offers great advantages over deportation.
Persons requesting voluntary departure after the conclusion of their final removal hearing must have been physically present in the U.S. for at least one year before being placed in removal proceedings.
They must also demonstrate that they were a person of good moral character for the last five years, are not removable for an aggravated felony or security-related grounds, and generally have the means to depart the United States and intend to do so by the given date.
