Deferred Action Process

In 2012, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) was instituted by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Through this deferred action process, thousands of undocumented youth across the nation may qualify for temporary deportation relief. Qualification extends to young people who arrived in the United States before the age of 16, are current students or have completed school, were physically present in the U.S. on June 15, 2012, and have continuously resided in the U.S. from June 15, 2007 to the present. Another important requirement for this deferred action process, also referred to as deferred action for dreamers, is that the candidate has not been convicted of a felony, a significant misdemeanor, or three or more non-significant misdemeanors. If the young person meets these standards for eligibility, the Law Offices of Henry A. Posada will guide the candidate through the deferred action process.
