If you have a final deportation hearing and the judge denied your waiver. and you have no criminal records..... what is the next step? do they hold you on that same day or would they give you time to leave?
Rarely deported on the same day: usually there is an appeal, arrangements, etc. However, it will also depend on prior case history, reasons for removal, defenses from removal, etc. Your attorney should consult you on all this issues, and also an attorney can ask the government on their plans (if there would be no appeal, etc. and the case is lost).
Depends on whether the person is detained or not, what relief you're asking for, whether you're agreeing to voluntary departure, and a hundred other 'Ifs'. You should consult with an attorney immediately and retain one to help you. Immigration court should not be broached without quality help.
First, and most important: You should be asking this question of the lawyer that is handling the case. Don't be so foolish as to got to court without a lawyer.
Depending on what the judge decides, and whether or not appeal is reserved, the might not move the person immediately.
If the person is in custody they will try to move the quickly ... depending on the country of nationality.
No. You will not be deported on the same day. If granted voluntary departure you are given time to leave. If you are in custody and deported by the government it takes them at least a few days to get your travel doc's and make arrangements - usually at least a week. If you case is appealed the order is stayed until the decision is made at the BIA level.
I hope that you have an experienced immigration attorney representing you.
