Austin Attorneys Discuss Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals in TX
If you're an immigrant who was under the age of 31 as of June 15, 2012, you may be eligible for deferred action. DACA, or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, offers protection for young immigrants who came to the U.S. as children. Deferred action gives eligible individuals the opportunity to live and work within the United States without the fear of being deported. There are a number of requirements an immigrant must meet before they're deemed qualified for DACA. Our firm is experienced in assisting DACA eligible immigrants with applying for DACA and can help you eliminate the stress of attempting the process yourself.
Deferred Action Laws
Your age, the length of time you've lived in the United States, schooling, any military service, and your criminal record play a part in your DACA eligibility. Any immigrant under the age of 31 and over the age of 15 can apply. If you've maintained a permanent residence in the United States since June 15, 2007, 5 years before DACA was implemented, your chances of gaining a favorable outcome will be increased. Contact Peek & Toland today to speak with an experienced deferred action lawyer.
