Qualifying for DACA if You Never Finished High School
As a New Jersey Immigration Lawyer, I am frequently asked if one can qualify for DACA if you never finished high school and entered the U.S. as a minor.
- A requirement for DACA is to be able to produce a high school diploma.
- But you can also be eligible if you prove that you are enrolled in school or a GED program.
- You must prove that you entered the U.S. before the age of 16, and before June 2007. You must also have had to be present in the United States on June 15, 2012 which is when DACA started.
- Deferred Action allows you to gain a two to four year work permit.
