When is a person considered to be deported?

I stayed in the U.S for more than 9 years but after filing couple petitions unsuccessfully I was offered and took a volunteer departure order from the Immigration Judge. I left the U.S. within 120 days allowed, but due to some circumstances I never had my form filled by the immigration officer in the U.S. after the court date or brought this form to the U.S. embassy in my home country of Russia, like I was told to do by a U.S, immigration judge. Will I be considered deported now? And if there is any chance for me to try and apply for a U.S. visa in future again?

Under the immigration laws of the United States a person is deemed deported when a federal court judge issues an order of deportation for an illegal alien residing in this country and United States marshall literally arrests the illegal alien, places him or her on an airplane, sits with the person on the plane ride and lets that person deplane at an airport in the country where the illegal alien has originated from.

From what you have written, it does not appear that you were deported from this country under our laws on the subject.
