Your child could have their status upgraded

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, is a program for people who were brought to the U.S. by their parents when they were younger. If you came to the U.S. with your child before your child was 15 years old, they might qualify for DACA.

DACA allows your child to get a job and protects them from deportation. If they are eligible, consider helping them through the DACA process so they can live their dreams here.

Your child qualifies for DACA if:

• They came to the U.S. before age 16

• They were under the age of 31 on June 15, 2012

• They have been in the U.S. since June 15, 2007

• They were in the U.S. on June 15, 2012

• They are in school now or finished high school

• They do not have a criminal record

You will need documents to prove your child meets these requirements. You can find a list of documents here that you can use to prove your child's qualifications. An immigration lawyer can help you find these documents.

There are also a few forms to complete, which are in the link above. After sending in the forms, your child will be scheduled for a biometrics appointment. This means they will take fingerprints and a signature from your child.

You will hear back about your child's DACA application within 90 days. An immigration lawyer can help you with the DACA process. You need to have the correct documents and you need to fill out the forms correctly. A lawyer can help you make sure that your child qualifies.

You need to renew DACA in two years

After two years, your child will need to apply for DACA again. The process is easier but you do not want your child's DACA waiver to expire before you renew it. Ask an immigration lawyer about renewing DACA for your child.
