Voluntary Departures

Deported? We Can Help You Explore Your Options. Call (513) 275-1081.

Thousands of immigrants are placed in removal proceedings every year in the United States. Removal proceedings result in deportation unless you can provide a compelling reason for staying. Rather than go through the intensive legal process associated with deportation, the immigrant can choose a voluntary departure.

What Is Voluntary Departure?

A voluntary departure allows the immigrant to remain for an additional time to arrange removal from the U.S. at their own expense. Other benefits of voluntary departure also include being able to leave the U.S. by a certain date and not being barred from returning to the U.S. at another time.

Voluntary departure typically has a deadline of 60 or 120 days, which gives an individual more time to make living arrangements, visit friends and family, and complete any business such as closing bank accounts, selling property, and more.

Is a voluntary departure the right choice for you? Speak with a Hamilton immigration attorney at Jorge H. Martinez Attorney At Law about how we can help the judge approve your request. Schedule a consultation by calling (513) 275-1081.

When Voluntary Departures Might Be Right for You

If a voluntary departure is granted, an immigrant must leave the country within the amount of time specified by a judge. You may also want to work with an immigration lawyer during this time to determine whether you may be eligible for deportation relief.

Voluntary departures might be right for you if:

  • You want to be released from or avoid detention
  • You may want to apply for Permanent Residency at another time
  • You want to depart on your own terms
  • You want to avoid any fines and penalties associated with deportation

The decision for a voluntary departure should not be taken lightly. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) may request a signature on a document that forfeits your right to return. Make sure that an immigration lawyer familiar with voluntary departures guides you through the process.
