Immigration News Update
ORDER OF SUPERVISION
If you have been placed on an order of supervision, then an attorney from our firm can provide you with substantial information regarding your situation. An order of supervision is issued when an individual has been released from physical custody of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). The order marks a waiting period that precedes the obtainment of a final order of removal. This order is usually issued if it is unlikely that the alien can be removed in the near future.
WHAT MUST BE DONE DURING AN ORDER OF SUPERVISION?
If you are under an order of supervision, then there are specific actions that must be taken. This order requires you to periodically report to an immigration officer. It also may require you to obtain permission if you plan to travel out of state. If an order of removal is given, then you may have to obtain necessary travel documents. You will also have to keep the immigration officer informed of any personal information changes made, such as a change of address. There are also rare cases that require a GPS bracelet to be worn at all times. Being subject to an order of supervision is a time of limited freedom for those who are not yet required to be removed from the country.

Hundreds of thousands of people are deported from the United States every year. Most are unable to return to the United States on an immigrant visa, due to a variety of factors. Some lack a way to obtain a new immigrant visa, and others face grounds of inadmissibility for which they are unable to obtain a waiver.
In some cases, however, a non-immigrant visa may provide a way for a person to return to the United States following removal. If the applicant is able to meet the general requirements for such a visa, a waiver of inadmissibility may be sought under the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). Non-immigrant waiver are available for a broad range of inadmissibility grounds. Under certain circumstances, even an applicant with a "lifetime bar" (for example, a former lawful permanent resident deported due to an aggravated felony conviction) may obtain such a waiver.
