Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is an executive branch policy that grants immigration relief to certain eligible people. Specifically, DACA allows many of those who were brought into the United States as minors to apply for two-year temporary legal status, on a renewable basis.

DACA offers considerable benefits to those who are eligible to apply for immigration relief. Most importantly, DACA recipients are granted two-year lawful status to live and work within the United States. With this comes several different specific benefits, including the ability to apply for a driver’s license, among others. Additionally, DACA recipients can seek approval to leave and re-enter the United States.
DACA is designed to benefit undocumented immigrants who were brought into the United States as children. Only a limited amount of people qualify for immigration relief under this program. Under the policy, you must meet all of the following requirements to be eligible to apply for DACA:
DACA is currently in flux. While DACA was originally created in 2012 by the Obama Administration, in September of 2017, President Trump announced that DACA was being “ended” and that no new DACA applications would be accepted. As of now, the future of DACA is very much unclear. There have been indications from President Trump, Congressional Democrats and Congressional Republicans that a deal that restores DACA may be possible. Still, whether one will be reached remains to be seen.

One of my relatives just received her Green Card and the credit goes to Kevin Raica and his Paralegal, Aga Bogdanowicz. The final “Adjust Status Petition” including the supporting documentation was 128 pages long! There is no way we could have compiled this level of detail much less have it be error free on our own. The whole process took around 8 months which is to be expected; however, the Petition package was so complete that no interview was required. If you ever have need of immigration legal service you just can’t go wrong with Kevin Raica and the immigration…
My international partner and I needed assistance with completing the process to receive a green card and residency in the United States.
