Dreamer's Act (DACA) Eligibility Confusion

Dreamer's Act (DACA) Eligibility Confusion

“ There has been much confusion in the news regarding DACA. Recently, a Federal Judge has put a hold on the Trump Administration’s efforts to end the program. There is still no permanent resolution, however, for the time being the government is required to process renewals from all who are eligible to renew.

Who Is Eligible to Renew:

You may request a renewal if you met the initial 2012 DACA guidelines and you:

  • Did not depart the United States on or after Aug. 15, 2012, without advance parole;
  • Have continuously resided in the United States since you submitted your most recent DACA request that was approved;
  • Have not been convicted of a felony, a significant misdemeanor, or three or more misdemeanors, and do not otherwise pose a threat to national security or public safety; and
  • Are a current DACA recipient whose benefits expire between Sept. 5, 2017 and March 5, 2018.

In these uncertain times, all DACA recipients are best served by having an attorney experienced in immigration law handle their DACA renewal. Contact the office to meet with an immigration attorney top discuss your ability to renew your DACA status and discuss other immigration options. The cost of an initial consultation is $100. If we agree to accept your case, the actual retainer fee will vary depending upon each client’s unique situation and prospect.”
