Voluntary Departure: When the Consequences of Failing to Depart Should and Should Not Apply

From the American Immigration Council:

This Practice Advisory addresses when the voluntary departure period runs and the events that cause automatic termination of a voluntary departure order; the serious consequences that result from failing to depart; and when these consequences do not apply.

The Advisory also analyzes important changes in the case law and outlines arguments for when the consequences for failing to depart pursuant to a voluntary departure order should not apply.

The Appendix provides background about the eligibility requirements for voluntary departure.
