DREAM Act Deferred Action Program

DREAM Act Deferred Action Program

The goal of the Deferred Action For Childhood Arrivals (DACA) Program is to provide undocumented immigrants who were brought to the United States as children the opportunity to obtain status and pursue their lifelong dreams, by going to college or serving in the military. However, fear and misinformation about the DREAM Act Deferred Action Program is pervasive.

We at The Cleveland Law Firm, are dedicated to helping young people understand and apply for deferred action. Having a legal representative that understands the complexity of this program on your side can ensure that you can successfully upgrade your status.

What Is The DREAM Act Deferred Action For Childhood Arrivals?

The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is a program that was implemented by the President of the United States. If your parents brought you into the United States before the age of 15 and you have graduated from high school, DACA makes it possible for you to upgrade your status from undocumented. If your DACA application is approved, you will have the ability to obtain:

  • A Social Security Number
  • Work Authorization
  • A Driver's License
  • Temporary Immunity From Deportation

Many people fear that DACA is really a trap designed to catch undocumented immigrants and deport them. Though this fear is understandable, it has no factual basis. Hundreds of young people have already applied and have been approved for DACA status. Let the lawyers at The Cleveland Law Firm successsfully guide you through this rigorous process.

Apply For Deferred Action

When you apply for deferred action, our lawyers will work with you to collect important documents such as:

  • School Records
  • Immunization Records
  • Bank Statements
  • Social Networking Profiles (i.e. on Facebook and Twitter)

We will also assist you with the applications and forms that you will need to fill out, including Form I-821D Consideration of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, Form I-765 Application for Employment Authorization and the Form I-765WS Worksheet.

It is very important to ensure that these forms are filled out and submitted correctly or your application will be rejected. We can help you avoid making mistakes in your application that may prevent you from being eligible for deferred action.

After you file your forms, USCIS will review them and send you a notice of an appointment at an Application Support Center for biometric services. That means someone will take photos of you and take your fingerprints. You will also be subject to a background check.

Although the process is long and often confusing, you will have peace of mind knowing that our attorneys will stand by you every step of the way.
