Guidance with Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals applications

Many U.S. laws regarding immigrants are perceived to be in jeopardy based on the things that President-elect Donald Trump said during his campaign. However, it's important to remember that for now, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program created by President Barack Obama in 2012 is still in effect.

Under DACA, those who came to the U.S. with their parents as children and meet other requirements can request a status change so that they will no longer be considered undocumented. This allows people to get a driver's license and Social Security number, pursue higher education, apply for jobs, serve in the military and take advantage of other opportunities for improving their lives and those of their families that aren't available to undocumented immigrants.

"Deferred action" refers to the fact that no deportation action will be taken against people while they are under the DACA program. DACA status is good for two years and then subject to renewal after that.

A big concern of people who want to apply for DACA is that by "coming out of the shadows," they risk deportation since DACA doesn't provide lawful status. That's one reason why seeking experienced legal guidance is helpful if you want to apply for DACA.

The attorneys at Taylor Lee & Associates LLC help young people apply for the program, ensuring that they meet the requirements and provide the necessary documentation. We also help them renew their waivers so that they don't risk having to go through the application process again or face deportation.

Below are some of the key qualifications for DACA. You must.

-- Be enrolled in high school, have graduated from high school or have a GED.

-- Have been in the U.S. for at least five years.

-- Have been under 31 years old on June 15, 2012 when the program went into effect.

-- Have no criminal record that would prevent being allowed into the U.S.

-- Have demonstrated good moral character.

If you or your child is considering a DACA waiver or if you need to renew your waiver, we can help. Our website provides more information on the DACA program and on the other types of immigration issues we handle.
