Order of Supervision
An order of supervision is issued when an individual has been released from the physical custody of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). The order of supervision marks a waiting period that precedes the obtainment of a final order of removal.
If you are under an order of supervision, then there are specific actions that you are required to complete and/or adhere to as 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.
- An order of supervision requires you to periodically report to an immigration officer.
- Requires 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.
- Requires you to keep the immigration officer informed of any personal information changes made, such as a change of address.
- There are also rare cases where an order of supervision requires you to wear a GPS bracelet at all times.
