Understanding The 'Dreamers Act' And DACA

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) began consideration of deferred action for childhood arrivals (DACA) immigrants who arrived as children on Aug. 15, 2012.

Deferred action for "dreamers" is a program geared toward young people who have been living in the United States since they were children and who meet certain guidelines. Consideration for this program was originally available to those who were currently in removal proceedings, those who had been issued orders of deportation and those who had never been involved in an immigration matter. As of late 2018, DACA is only available on a renewal basis. As laws and enforcement trends change, it is important to stay in touch with an immigration lawyer if this program may apply to you or a close family member.

Requests for renewal of deferred action status are considered on an individual basis. Applicants must provide biometric information, undergo background checks, complete a specific form and mail the request along with an application for employment authorization and all applicable fees. Our immigration lawyers will advise you on whether you still qualify for DACA and will provide comprehensive help preparing the requested materials to offer you the best chance for approval of your renewal application.
