    Three minuses are there for you: you overstayed on US soil for more than a year (10-year bar); you are outside of the US; and you're a felon.

    Against two pluses: granted voluntary departure and marriage to a USC.

    Voluntary departure is beneficial, in some cases could override bar to reentry, but only if the "overstay" is more than 180 days but less than 365 days, where the bar is three years. This benefit does not apply to you.

    Marriage to a USC, under normal circumstances, proffers immediate immigration benefit to an alien spouse, as long as some basic qualifiers are fulfilled. But your situation being the alien spouse in this specific scenario is "very far" from normal or straightforward. (Please see your three minuses above).

    Therefore, your chance of being readmitted into the US is very little to nil for the next 10 years, which is further muddled by your run-in with the law while you were here (burglary or trespassing?).

    Beware of some practitioners that may promise you the moon and the stars in exchange for hefty fees. They may brandish these and those kinds of waivers and make it look easy. And yet, on the receiving end, the US government will just sit on your subsequent applications that are anchored on your marriage viewed as nothing more than an act of convenience or as a desperate immigration leverage (however love-inspired it may be).

    Believe me, your road ahead leading to the US is not that smooth. The coast is not that clear for you facing the Statue of Liberty.

    (Just an opinion - take it or leave it).

    florida2001: forgive me for using the word felon because I didn't really mean that in the criminal sense, otherwise your voluntary departure request should not have been granted, but its implication with your immigration problem (trespassing can be a misdemeanor in one state but may be a felony in another state). What I meant was that it would still work to your disadvantage (a demerit or a minus point) in the course of the background check to be undertaken about you in your subsequent filings. Because you could fail the "good moral character" requirement within five years of your departure (or removal under safeguards) from the US.

    Explora: the safeguards that the OP mentioned is one of the conditions being attached to the granting of voluntary departure to ensure the alien's timely departure from the US within the given period, that may include: posting of bond; continued detention before departure; and removal under safeguards.

    In some cases, an alien is even required to present to the Service, for inspection and photocopying, his or her passport or other travel documentation sufficient to assure lawful entry into the country to which the alien is departing.

    These are the "safeguards" not the officers that enforce them.
