What Is DACA?

DACA, or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, is an exercise of the US government’s discretion to provide temporary protection from deportation to certain undocumented immigrants brought to the country as children through no fault of their own. The Department of Homeland Security will not actively pursue the deportation of individuals who meet the eligibility requirements of the DACA program.

However, it is essential to note that DACA is not a permanent status, nor does it provide a path to citizenship.

Although DACA doesn’t grant visas or legal immigration status, it can be used to protect against deportation and to obtain the ability to work legally in the U.S.

What Are the Eligibility Requirements for DACA?

To qualify for DACA, an individual must meet the following criteria:

  • Must have been under the age of 31 as of June 15th, 2012;
  • Have entered the US before their 16th birthday;
  • Do not have lawful status in the US;
  • Have continuously resided in the US since June 15th, 2007;
  • Are currently enrolled in school or have obtained a high school diploma/GED/college degree or are an honorably discharged veteran of the armed forces;
  • Have not been convicted of a felony or significant misdemeanor, or three misdemeanors; and
  • Do not pose a threat to national security or public safety.

How Can a DACA Attorney Help?

When considering applying for DACA, consulting a qualified immigration attorney is highly recommended. Our skilled DACA attorneys can help with the following:

  • Provide guidance and assistance throughout the entire process to ensure that you receive the best possible outcome in your case;
  • Navigating the complexities of the application process;

How to Apply for DACA?

Due to ongoing litigation, new initial DACA applications cannot be processed by USCIS (U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services) at the moment. However, suppose you were previously granted DACA status. In that case, you may renew it up to 6 months before your current Employment Authorization Document or EAD expires. If you hold DACA status, you may be eligible to apply for advanced parole and a special international travel permit if you have employment, educational, or humanitarian reasons for traveling.
