What is Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)?

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is a groundbreaking immigration policy announced by the Obama Administration on June 15, 2012 that allows certain undocumented immigrants who qualify to remain in the U.S. in two-year increments and obtain protection from deportation. The application process to apply for DACA is now open! Speak to our qualified lawyers before applying as this is not an easy process and requires the right documentation and disclosures.

We represent clients of all ages and backgrounds, including applicants with misdemeanors and other criminal incidents in their background. Call us today for a case evaluation at (626) 325-0770.

Do I Need a Lawyer for Deferred Action?

It is highly recommended that you seek counsel to represent you on a DACA application. Think about what you are doing when filing for DACA. You are revealing yourself to the United States Government as being an undocumented immigrant. You are giving the government all your personal information including all the addresses you have lived at, how you entered the U.S., all the social security numbers you have used, and much more. This is information that can be used against you now or later on if not disclosed appropriately and only for the right candidate.

A qualified immigration lawyer in Pasadena can advise you on how to protect yourself during this process and how to disclose sensitive information appropriately. At Green, Stewart & Paul Attorneys at Law, we also handle difficult cases where applicants have run into legal trouble including misdemeanors, driving without a license, using fake social security numbers, and getting apprehended at the border and deported. Our lawyers focus on addressing the weaknesses in your application and draft cover letters with your application, laying out the reasons your case should be granted. Contact us today for a case evaluation. Our firm is here to help.

Do not use Notary Publics (Notarios) or “Immigration Consultants” for legal advice to file your application. Only utilize a trusted lawyer who is licensed to practice law.
