Applying For A Voluntary Departure

There are times when a voluntary departure may be your only choice after having exhausted all your legal resources to stay in the U.S. At The Presti Law Firm, we understand this might be a stressful and challenging experience.

With our voluntary departure assistance services, we will help you understand your options so you can make the most informed decision about your future in the U.S.

What Is Voluntary Departure?

Voluntary departure is a legal process granted by the U.S. government that allows an immigrant to leave the country on their own instead of being forcibly removed or deported. The key advantage of voluntary departure is that it allows immigrants to leave the United States on their terms and schedule, avoiding the stigma of being deported.

Those who depart voluntarily are typically eligible to reapply for admission into the United States after a certain period has passed, whereas those who are deported may face a lifetime ban.

Who Needs This Service?

There may be certain conditions that an individual must meet to be eligible for voluntary departures, such as having a clean criminal record and demonstrating an intention to depart from the United States within the specified time frame.

When Do You Need This Service?

An individual can decide to apply for voluntary departure, usually after completing all proceedings through immigration courts and waiting for a final decision or appeal. Individuals granted voluntary departure must leave the U.S. within the specified time frame, make travel arrangements and cover any associated costs.

The maximum time an immigrant has to leave the United States after being granted voluntary departure is 60 days or risk being subject to removal proceedings.
