The Dream Act (DACA)

Understanding DACA With Help From Our Carrollton DACA Lawyers

The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program was created by President Barack Obama to protect certain immigrants from deportation and allow them to get temporary work permits. The DACA program has allowed some undocumented immigrants to secure a temporary work permit. At Christensen P.C., our immigration attorneys can help you navigate changes to this program under the current administration.

If you have questions about how the DACA affects your status, please call (972) 497-1017 for a consultation.

Qualifying for DACA

In order to qualify for DACA, you must have arrived in the United States prior to 16 years of age, lived in the country continuously since June 15, 2007, and satisfied an educational requirement. In addition, DACA recipients cannot have been convicted of a felony, significant misdemeanor, or pose a threat to public safety or national security.

Initial DACA Applications

USCIS has started accepting initial DACA applications again! The application process and requirements for qualification will follow the same guidelines as were in place before President Trump tried to end the program. Successful applicants may be able to receive authorization to work or travel and will need to renew their application after two years.

Renewing Your DACA Application

You may be able to renew your immigration status under DACA, as long as you:

  • Did not travel outside of the United States without authorization on or after August 15, 2012
  • Have been continuously residing in the United States since you submitted your last DACA application that was approved
  • Have not been convicted of a felony or significant misdemeanor and do not pose a threat to public safety or national security
