Default Re: Can I return to the United States of America after I signed voluntary departure

I wish to inform you that the provisions of INA: ACT 240B - VOLUNTARY DEPARTURE deal with the subject matter. Further, the Attorney General may permit an alien voluntarily to depart the United States at the alien's own expense if, at the conclusion of a proceeding under section 240, the immigration judge enters an order granting voluntary departure in lieu of removal and finds that-(A) the alien has been physically present in the United States for a period of at least one year immediately preceding the date the notice to appear was served under section 239(a) ;(B) the alien is, and has been, a person of good moral character for at least 5 years immediately preceding the alien's application for voluntary departure;(C) the alien is not deportable under section 237(a)(2)(A)(iii) or section 237(a)(4) ; and (D) the alien has established by clear and convincing evidence that the alien has the means to depart the United States and intends to do so. You may contact an attorney and seek guidance.
