Voluntary Departure

Chicago Immigration Lawyers

Our Chicago immigration law firm can help you obtain voluntary departure from the United States to avoid removal.  Voluntary departure is not a nonimmigrant status. However, it is considered as a period of time authorizing the foreign national to be in the U.S. Therefore, time spent in voluntary departure is not considered unlawful presence which affects future admissibility to the U.S. Although voluntary departure time is not counted when calculating unlawful presence, an noncitizen who has been given a period of voluntary departure is not considered to be maintaining status for purposes of receiving an extension or status change.

The laws concerning voluntary departure are very complex. We can help you understand what are the limitations of your stay and can counsel you regarding your long-term immigration goals depending on your personal or business needs.

Call us at 773-516-4100 or contact the Chicago immigration lawyers at Zneimer & Zniemer P.C. online for a consultation to discuss your immigration issues or questions.

Client Reviews
Someone rear-ended my car last spring and I was injured. Peter and Sofia Zneimer and they staff were professional and were always available by phone. I knew that the insurance of the other driver wasn't very good but they were still able to settle my case promptly and I was satisfied with the money I received. Overall, a very good trusted experience. Natig M.
I highly recommend the services of Zneimer and Zneimer. I often seek legal advice from them related to my immigration status and way forward. Both Sofia and Peter are very detailed and quick in answering any question. I laud their professionalism and a very efficient team that works for them. Suman S.
I totally recommend Sofia, she is the best lawyer in Chicago area. She is very professional, very detailed with her work and supportive. She always goes above and beyond to ensure the best outcome. Caring, compassionate and only the best for your family. I won my case because of her professionalism and her knowledge of the law. Aurel P.
I have dealt with Sofia Zneimer since 2009. She is a great lawyer and has helped me tremendously in navigating the process of green card. She is a great resource to have by your side. She is easy to reach. She responds very quickly, which was very important for me. If she can’t answer the question the same day, she does let you know that she is working on it. I would have no hesitation in recruiting her. Hemant S.

The best choice i ever made. Thank you! Emil G.
