DACA

DACA stands for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. DACA is a form of administrative relief from deportation and was created to protect eligible immigrant children who came to the United States when they were children from deportation. An individual must be at least 15 years of age or older to request DACA unless they are currently in removal proceedings or have a final removal or voluntary departure order. An individual is eligible for DACA if they:

 

  • Were under the age of 31 as of June 15, 2012;

  • First came to the U.S. before their 16th birthday;

  • Have continuously resided in the United States since June 15, 2007 until present;

  • Were physically present in the United States on June 15, 2012 and at the time they applied for DACA with USCIS

  • Had no lawful status on June 15, 2012, or their lawful status expired as of June 15, 2012

  • Are currently in school, graduated high school or earned a certificate of completion of high school or GED, or they are an honorably discharged veteran of the Coast Guard or U.S. Armed Forces; and

  • Have not been convicted of a felony, certain significant misdemeanors (including a single DUI), or three or more misdemeanors of any kind, and do not otherwise pose a threat to national security or public safety

 

 

Deferred action does not provide lawful status. However, if individuals are granted DACA they are given deferred action, which protects them from deportation for a two year period, and also makes them eligible for work authorization. However, it is important to know that one’s DACA status and work permit expire after a two year period, but may be subject to renewal.  Due to the severe discretionary nature of DACA, it is highly recommended that you consult an attorney for further information and assistance in pursuing a DACA application. At Chammas Jurado we have a vast amount of experience in successfully filing DACA petitions and assisting with DACA renewals for our clients who are located throughout the United States. Our experience enables us to provide you the legal representation you need to ensure that you have the best possible outcome.

Cristian, Google Review

I have to say, Chammas Jurado provided excellent service! I was interested in helping my mother become a U.S. citizen, with Carlos’ experience I felt as if I was getting the best help possible. Carlos made sure to take a moment and simply talk to my mother to get to know her. He clearly stated the process she would have to go through and provided her with a sense of confidence. I’m proud to say my mother is now a U.S. citizen because of the amazing work ethic at Chammas Jurado. I would definitely recommend this place if you’re in need of immigration attorneys!

Nour is honestly one of the best and most knowledgeable immigration attorneys I know!  Especially when it comes to deportation defense, I do not know anyone who is more knowledgeable about the law and the procedure than he is.  Equally importantly, unlike many other immigration lawyers, Nour is extremely honest and reasonable with his prices and fees.  No BS and no gimmicks…  I highly recommend him!
