As of August 15, 2012, any person who is at least 15 years old, currently enrolled in school or graduated, and was present in the United States before June 15, 2007, and was under 31 years of age on June 15, 2012, is able to apply for a two-year period of “deferred action” from the Department of Homeland Security. “Deferred action” means that the Service will not initiate removal (deportation) proceedings against the self-petitioner. Deferred action status will be valid for up to 24 months beyond the date a visa number becomes available.
With Deferred Action status, the applicant may obtain a work permit, social security card, drivers license and other important documents to establish a legal presence in the United States. For more information read: DACA: Guidelines and Procedures.
Our firm has already prepared a streamlined approach to the application process. Since there is NO appeal process for DACA, contact our experienced immigration attorneys to make sure you have a successful case.
