The Primary Requirements For Applying For A ‘Deferred Action For Childhood Arrivals (DACA)’ Grant

 

The Obama administration has provided a form of relief for those individuals who came to the States as children and studied here or served in the US military. The program is known as I821D Consideration of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals and is operational since August the fifteenth, 2012. Before you understand the I821D requirements, it is imperative that you understand what deferred action means. The I821D consideration of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals is a grant of relief by the DHS depending solely on their discretion. People who are caught in removal proceedings, who have been issued the final orders of removal or those who have never been in removal proceedings are all applicable for the deferred action grant.

 

The basic I-821D requirements for eligibility are as follows: if you were under 31 years of age as of June the fifteenth, 2012, if you entered the States at under sixteen years of age, if you have continuously resided in the country since June the fifteenth, 2007, if you entered the US illegally, or your legal immigration status expired, before June the fifteenth, 2012, if you were present on US soil on the aforementioned date and applied for the I-821D consideration of deferred action for childhood arrivals with the USCIS, if you’re a student, if you’re past high school.

 

if you have obtained GED, or have been honorably discharged from the armed forces, if you have not been convicted of a felony offence, a significant misdemeanor, or more than three misdemeanors and have not been labeled as a national threat. If you believe you meet the above mentioned I821D requirements, then you have to submit documentary evidence to convince the USCIS when you submit the application for the i821D consideration of deferred action for childhood arrivals. The I821D requirements are pretty tricky for an ordinary person to understand so it is best to obtain the help of a professional immigration lawyer.
