Step-by-Step Guide to ECPDO & CPDO (Early/Conditional Parole for Deportation Only)

The Step-by-Step Guide to ECPDO and CPDO explains the process for early or conditional parole for deportation for people held by NYS DOCCS (New York State prisons). It includes information about who may be eligible, things to consider before pursuing ECPDO or CPDO, and practical tips for navigating the process with ICE and the NYS Division of Parole.

It is important to remember that if you want to fight your deportation so you can remain in the United States, ECPDO and CPDO are not for you. Seeking CPDO or ECPDO means giving up any change to stop your deportation.
