  1. Depends on whether you are granted voluntary departure or not.

    Contact attorney Gintare Grigaite, Esq. at 201-471-7989, located in New York and New Jersey. Answers on AVVO do not constitute legal advice and do not form attorney-client relationship. Always consult an attorney for a legal advice.

  2. 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.

  3. I agree with my colleagues it all depends - also the things that were not mentioned are appeals and availability of a valid travel document for you.

    This is not legal advice and a client attorney relationship is not created. For a free consultation call (718)234-5588.

  4. 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.

  5. 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).

  6. When was the immigration decision on the 237(a)(1)(H) waiver? Was appeal reserved? Was an appeal filed?

  7. 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.
