Aggressive Defense for Children of Immigrants Born in the United States
Children of immigrants who came to the United States as a child face the constant threat of deportation to their parent’s home country. Fortunately, help is available. Our attorneys at The Scott Law Firm, LLC can assist your request for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). The program was made possible through the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act, which is why these individuals are often called “DREAMers.”
Am I Eligible for DACA Renewal in Louisiana?
According to the United State Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS)’ guidelines for DACA renewal, you may request it only if:
- You arrived to the U.S. before you turned 16 years of age.
- You have not been convicted of a felony, a (or 3) significant misdemeanors, and you were present in the U.S. on June 15th, 2012 as you made a request for deferred action.
- You have continuously resided in the United States since your original DACA request.
- You do not pose a threat to national security or the safety of the public.
- You were under the age of 31 as of June 15th, 2012.
- You are currently matriculate at school, have graduated from high school or obtained your GED, or you are an honorably discharged veteran of the military, including the U.S. Coast Guard.
The Filing Process for DACA Renewal
At The Scott Law Firm, LLC, we recommend following current USCIS guidelines to request a DACA renewal approximately 4 to 5 months before your initial DACA grant expires. To request a DACA renewal, you should complete and sign these documents: Form I-821D (Consideration for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), Form I-765 (Application for Employment Authorization), and Form I-765W Worksheet.
All three of these forms must be submitted to USCIS, which we can assist you with and give you the best shot of staying in the country. We can begin by collecting the necessary documents and contain evidence that you meet the required guidelines for DACA.
