DACA Immigration Lawyer FAQs

What is DACA?

DACA, or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, is a program that provides temporary relief from deportation and work authorization to eligible undocumented individuals who entered the U.S. as children. It allows them to legally reside and work in the United States.

Why are DACA applicants called DREAMers?

DACA applicants are often referred to as DREAMers because the proposed DREAM Act was a legislative effort that sought to provide a path to legal status for individuals brought to the U.S. as children. DACA was implemented as an executive action to provide a similar form of relief.

What should be on a DACA Requirements Checklist?

A DACA requirements checklist typically includes proof of arrival in the U.S. before the age of 16, continuous residence in the U.S., educational or military service, lack of serious criminal convictions, and other supporting documentation. Consult with an immigration lawyer to ensure you meet all eligibility criteria.

What are DACA Benefits?

DACA benefits include protection from deportation, work authorization, eligibility for a Social Security number, the ability to obtain a driver’s license in many states, and access to various educational opportunities and social services.

Can DACA recipients register to vote in the United States?

No, DACA recipients cannot register to vote in the United States. DACA provides temporary relief from deportation and work authorization but does not grant voting rights or a path to citizenship.

Can I get a Green Card or U.S. Citizenship with DACA?

DACA is a temporary status and does not provide a direct path to obtaining a Green Card (permanent residency) or U.S. citizenship. However, it can be a stepping stone, and some DACA recipients may explore other immigration options.

Can criminal convictions prevent you from receiving DACA?

Yes, certain criminal convictions, particularly felonies and significant misdemeanors, can disqualify an individual from receiving DACA. It’s essential to consult with an immigration lawyer to assess your specific situation and potential eligibility.

Do I Need a Lawyer to Apply for DACA?

While it’s not mandatory to have a lawyer to apply for DACA, legal assistance is highly recommended. An experienced immigration lawyer like Anna Hysell from North County Immigration can help ensure your application is complete, accurate, and that you meet all eligibility requirements, greatly increasing your chances of success.
