Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is a benefit that came to be as an executive order from the president on June 2012. It provides protection against deportation and employment authorization to eligible people that were brought into the country as minors before June 15, 2007, have graduated high school or are enrolled in school, and have a clean criminal record, among other requirements. This benefit lasts two years and can be renewed.

On September 2017 this benefit was ended by order of the president but that fall two different Federal Courts ruled that renewals could still be made. In March 2018, a third Federal Court gave the government 90 days to explain why new applications could not be accepted. If there is no response satisfactory to the court, USCIS might have to start processing new applications.

As it now stands people can renew their DACA benefits. We encourage anyone currently under DACA that is eligible to apply for renewal to do so. You can schedule an appointment and we will make sure to verify your eligibility, prepare your application packet, and legally represent you in front of USCIS from beginning to end of your case.
