Voluntary departure do I need a waiver?

Hello everyone,

My husband recently sent the I-130 petition for me (Jan 2, 2009). I was granted voluntary departure because my Assylum case was denied, the voluntary departure period expires Jan 25, 2009. Me and my husband got married Dec 21, 2008. If I return to my home country before Jan. 25 and continue the visa process there (cr1) would I need a waiver?

Thank you in advance

It sounds like you will not need a waiver, but we need more information.

Were you out of status at any time or did you have a case pending the whole time you were here?

How did you enter the U.S.? (Ex. with/without inspection/visa/type of visa)

Thanks for the quick response. I entered the U.S with a visitor's visa for 6 months. After 2 months of being here I filed for Asylum. The Assylum case was pending for about 9 to ten years and it was denied Nov. 25 and they granted me voluntary departure. I've never been out of status.
