How do I qualify?
The number of people who are accepted by DAPA may be limited, so to increase your chances of success, it is important to ensure you have the right documents prepared. The immigration law executive order helps to defer deportation of parents whose children are citizens and permanent residents and those who are not a priority for removal from the country.
To qualify for this program, you must meet the following criteria:
- Have no legal status in the United States
- Have presence in the U.S. on the date you apply
- Have entered the U.S. without lawful papers
- Have an expired lawful immigration status
- Have not been convicted for any misdemeanors or felonies
- Have a child who is a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident
Byrd & Associates is Here for You
If you are eligible for DAPA and are currently in custody or are facing removal proceedings / deportation, you may be granted favorable discretion. This is made possible by the Department of Homeland Security, the Immigrations and Customs Enforcement, and the Border Protection. Unfortunately, under certain circumstances, you may not qualify for DAPA (and can face further immigration problems). These circumstances include if you have been convicted of a criminal felony, have been apprehended when you were attempting to enter the U.S. illegally, or if you are suspected as being a danger to national security. Our San Jose immigration law attorney at Byrd & Associates has experience in handling a wide range of immigration cases. We can guide you through this step by step.
