Morristown Law Firm Provides Counsel for Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals Cases
Protecting Eligible Youths from Deportation
On June 15, 2012, the United States passed the Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals Act (DACA), which grants individuals brought illegally to the United States as children the ability to seek employment authorization for two years without the threat of deportation. At the Morristown, New Jersey, office of The Scheer Immigration Law Group, we determine if you are eligible for this consideration and if DACA is the right choice for your future.
Requirements for DACA Protection
Though the Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals Act aims to help hundreds of thousands of young illegal immigrants throughout the country, not everyone is eligible to take advantage of the measure. To be considered for DACA, you must:
- Have proof that you came to the United States before your 16th birthday
- Have been 30 or younger when DACA was instituted on June 15, 2012
- Be in school, be a high school graduate, or be a current or former member of the military
- Have never been convicted of a serious crime or pose no threat to public safety.
If you meet these criteria, our firm can help you through the DACA process.
Explaining the Benefits of DACA
For countless undocumented workers who arrived in the United States as children, finding odd jobs or getting a proper education can be nearly impossible. Thankfully, DACA will:
- Protect you from deportation or removal from the country
- Grant you the ability to obtain a job legally
- Allow you to stay in the country beyond the original two years after renewal
While DACA can be a fairly simple process for some, our skilled Morristown immigration lawyer at The Scheer Immigration Law Group can lend guidance and assistance to more complicated cases, as well. We make sure that your paperwork is filed quickly and correctly to avoid delays in the process. Remember, there is no appeals process for DACA, so it is vital to seek help from an experienced immigration attorney who can get it right the first time and settle any issues effectively right away.
