Deferred Action Lawyer in McAllen Texas

In 2012, president Obama implemented the DACA program for young immigrants. This program has allowed many young to get driver’s licenses, work permits and it has prevented the deportation of 600,000 young undocumented immigrants.

Individuals who obtain deferred action will not be placed into removal proceedings until the program finishes. This does not mean they have lawful status, but they are considered to be authorized to be present in the country. For two years, the individual may be eligible for employment authorization.

Who can apply?

If you meet any of these requirements, then you qualify for DACA:

-You arrived in the U.S. under the age of 16.
-Have been physically present in the U.S. since June 15, 2007 and haven’t left the country since.
-As of June 15, 2012 individual was under the age of 31.
-Have never had any form of legal status.
-Currently in school or seeking a High School Diploma, GED or degree.
-Have a clean criminal record and do not otherwise pose a threat to national security or public safety.

Other forms to prevent deportation

VAWA (Victims of Domestic Abuse)
This act grants victims of domestic abuse a pathway to temporary or permanent residence. If you are currently married to a U.S. citizen and have suffered physical or emotional abuse, you might be eligible to apply for legal status. Fortunately for the victims, they can self-petition if they don’t want their partner to have knowledge of their VAWA application. Victims may also self-petition if they are divorced as long as the marriage to the abusive spouse was terminated within two years of filing the petition. Other relatives can apply for legal status under VAWA like a parent or adult child. As long as applicants can show that they have lived with the abuser and have gathered plenty of evidence of the abuse throughout the years, then the case should be strong.
