Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, commonly incorrectly referred to as Dream Act or “Dreamers”

As of August 15, 2012, people that came to the country before turning 16 years of age may be eligible for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, DACA. If the applicant is granted DACA, they may gain work authorization that will allow them to obtain a Social Security card and, in most states, the option to apply for a driver’s license. If the applicant was under the age of 31 as of June 15, 2012 and came to the United States before turning 16 years or age and meets the requirements below, they are excellent candidates for this benefit.

 

  1. Have lived in the United States since June 15, 2007 to the present time;
  2. Are in High School or taking GED courses, have graduated High School or have a GED certificate, or were honorably discharged veteran of the Coast Guard or Armed Forces of the United States; and
  3. Are not prevented by your criminal record. Please speak with our attorneys to determine whether your record will affect your application.
