Deferred Action

Dallas Deferred Action Attorney

Deferred Action is a new policy. Deferred action will help a large population of young illegal and undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. under the age of 16 to avoid deportation proceedings and, ultimately, get legal status in the U.S. Undocumented aliens who meet the deferred action requirements are able to apply for deferred action and, thus, obtain work authorization and permission to remain in the U.S. for an additional two years--subject to renewal. Deferred action law also requires the government to halt removal proceedings, and prevents the government from initiating deportation proceedings against eligible aliens. Deferred action is determined on a case-by-case basis. Further, work authorization is only given if you have an economic necessity for employment.

Deferred Action Requirements

  1. Arrived in the United States when they were under the age of 16;
  2. Resided continuously in the United States for at least five years prior to June 15, 2012;
  3. Were present in the United States both on June 15, 2012 and at the time of making a request for deferred action;
  4. Either entered the U.S. without inspection before June 15, 2012 or your lawful immigration status expired as of June 15, 2012;
  5. Have not been convicted of a felony offense, a significant misdemeanor offense, multiple misdemeanors, or otherwise pose a threat to national security;
  6. Were under the age of 31 as of June 15, 2012; and
  7. Are above the age of 15, unless engaged in removal proceedings

To obtain deferred action, we must provide verifiable documentation that you meet the above requirements. This may be accomplished through school records, financial records, medical records, employment records, military records, etc.
