IDV – Issuance of Orders of Protection

Issuance of an O/P by itself does NOT trigger removal from the U.S., but it may:

  • Decrease the chances of a non-citizen being granted immigration status or other relief (i.e., U.S. citizenship, lawful permanent resident status) which may result in removal from the U.S.
  • Increase the potential for a non-citizen to be deemed inadmissible and referred for removal following brief travel abroad.
