Do you qualify for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals?

To see if you qualify for deferred action for childhood arrival, answer these questions: 1. Were you aged 30 or younger on June 15, 2012? 2. Did you come to the United States before your 16th birthday? 3. Have you continuously resided in the United States since June 15, 2007? 4. Were you physically present in the United States on June 15, 2012? 5. Are you currently in school studying towards your high school diploma or GED, or do you already have a high school diploma or GED? 6. Do you have a clean criminal record, or least no felony, significant misdemeanor or three other misdemeanors? If you answered yes to all six questions, you may be eligible to apply for Deferred Action, which protects you from deportation and provides you with a work permit. If you think you may be eligible, or if you have questions about your eligibility, contact us.

What if deportation has been triggered by a criminal conviction? Or you are worried that a pending charge may result in deportation?

If deportation has been triggered by a criminal conviction, or you are worried that a pending charge may result in deportation, we also offer criminal defense services. It is vital to consult with an attorney familiar with immigration laws before entering into any kind of plea agreement. If you have a pending criminal court date, or are already in deportation proceedings, please contact us for assistance.
