The United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) will begin
accepting requests for expanded Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals
(DACA) applications on February 18, 2015. This means that USCIS will extend
the original two year deferred action period and employment authorization
(work permit) to a period of three years. In addition, USCIS has extended
the DACA applicants' group to permit individuals of any age who entered
the United States before the age of 16 to apply and who have lived in
the United States continuously since at least January 1, 2010 (rather
than the prior requirement of June 15, 2007) along with meeting all of
the other DACA guidelines.
If you or someone you know would like to apply for DACA, please contact
our office at
(562) 464-6934 for a free consultation.
