Now Processing Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals

Now Processing Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals

On August 15, 2012, USCIS released the forms and has started accepting applications for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. The benefit of this application, when approved by USCIS, is that the alien will be given work authorization and will be protected against deportation.

The legal team at Lubiner, Schmidt & Palumbo, LLC has started processing and filing applications for Deferred Action for those undocumented aliens and overstaying foreign nationals who arrived in the United States before their 16th birthday. Individual applicants may file the application for deferred action by themselves but we encourage you to seek legal advice before proceeding. Only a licensed attorney will be qualified to provide advice on the sufficiency and advisability of filing the application, the proper documentation to prove your eligibility, on options for travelling outside the country, and on possible immigration consequences of filing the application.

For those in the New York and New Jersey area, our office is located in Union County, New Jersey, you can schedule an appointment to see one of our attorneys to discuss your individual situation. To prepare for filing, the individual should collect documentation to prove their presence in the United States.

The documents that may be accepted by USCIS to satisfy proof of arrival and presence in the US includes, but is not limited to:

  • Financial records
  • Medical records
  • School records
  • Employment records
  • Military records
  • School diplomas
  • GED certificates
  • School transcripts
  • Report cards
