DACA is Now Available to All!

With President Obama's announcement last night, DACA (Deferred Action, Childhood Arrival) has been expanded. Previously, the age cap was 31 -- individuals older than 31 could not apply. That cap has been removed! DACA is now available to a person meeting the DACA eligibility requirements, regardless of age. Further, the continuous residency requirements have also been amended. The new DACA requirements are:

  1. You must have arrived in the United States before you 16th birthday.
  2. You must have remained in the United States continuously since 01 January 2010.
  3. You must not have any serious criminal record (no misdemeanors or felonies -- some exceptions here).
  4. You must not be a priority removal target for ICE/DHS (generally, this means you cannot be a repeat immigration removal offender, terrorist, national security threat, serious criminal, gang member, smuggler, or other ne'er-do-well).

This is an outstanding opportunity for those who were previously excluded. We expect an overwhelming response to these new regulations. This will result in a large backlog and significant delays in processing. Contact Hanover Law now to start this process immediately. We will determine if you qualify, and what steps you need to take to complete the application process.

Do you have a criminal conviction that makes DACA difficult?

Do NOT be afraid. We specialize in helping folks just like you overcome their immigration difficulties. We practice throughout the East Coast in immigration courts from New York to Florida. We can help you! While no attorney can guarantee success, our experience assures you the best possible chance for obtaining legal status.

The new regulations indicate that you will receive a work permit (EAD = employment authorization document), and legal status, for three years under the DACA program. In most states, this will also allow you to obtain a driver's license and apply for student loans/aid. This is state specific, however, so be sure to discuss this with us when you call.

Start your DACA application now. Call us at 1-800-579-9864. The government filing fee for DACA is $465. This covers the EAD and biometrics fees. The actual application is free. We will complete your DACA application and shepherd your paperwork through the system for $750 + the filing fees. If two or more applicants apply from the same family, the cost is $500 per applicant + the filing fees.

Be CAREFUL how you apply. If your application is denied, you do not have a right to appeal the decision, and you may not apply again. We are licensed attorneys.

Your better future starts today. Contact us to start the process of obtaining legal status. Stop hiding and start living.
