DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals)

Experienced York Immigration Attorney

In 2012, an executive order known as DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) was put in place. DACA is intended to protect individuals who overstayed their visas or who came to the U.S. without documentation due to their parents' actions as children. DACA can be used to help individuals who are facing deportation or those who are seeking deferred action for employment purposes. The York immigration attorney at The Law Office of Rosina C. Stambaugh can help you explore the qualifications and determine whether you qualify for DACA.

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Qualifications

There are a variety of different factors which can affect your eligibility, which you can discuss with Rosina C. Stambaugh. You cannot depend on deferred action to prevent deportation or removal proceedings, as DACA can be revoked at any time since it is discretionary.

  • You were under 31 years old as of June 15, 2012.
  • You were not convicted of felony offenses.
  • You were not convicted of significant misdemeanors.
  • You have graduated high school, obtained your GED, or are currently in school.
  • You are currently in the U.S. to apply for deferred action.
  • You have lived in the U.S. since June 15, 2007.
  • You had no lawful status on June 15, 2012

Benefits of Deferred Action

Once you are approved and granted deferred action under DACA, you will be allowed to remain and work lawfully in the U.S. Rosina C. Stambaugh is extremely knowledgeable about the qualifying factors for DACA, as well as how to avoid making any mistakes in the application process.
