What Is an Order of Supervision?
An order of supervision is a stipulation that applies to people who are freed from a removal order without paying a bond as they await a court hearing or deportation order. Instead of being held in a detention facility, an order of supervision allows you to work and live your daily life as long as you fulfill your regular check-ins with ICE officials and satisfy certain conditions of your release.
Who Can Be Placed Under an Order of Supervision?
There are several reasons an individual is placed on an order of supervision:
- You were released for a humanitarian reason
- Some orders are given to nursing mothers
- Order can also be given to people who are the only supporters of children who are U.S. citizens.
What Is Required in an Order of Supervision?
This type of relief is called an order of supervision because, essentially, the alien will be supervised by an immigration agency official.
The individual must:
- Report to an enforcement or removal operations officer every few months.
- Obtain permission to travel out of state.
- Notify the immigration officer of any changes such as a change of residence
The purpose of this stipulation is to make sure that the process of obtaining a valid visa or passport has been achieved. In some cases, the individual may be required to return to his or her home country.
