DACA Attorneys in Chicago

Helping Clients Seek DACA Benefits

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is a federal program implemented in 2012 to protect eligible young undocumented individuals who entered the United States as minors from removal. This federal program could impact your immigration goals, so it is important to be aware of its rules and limitations.

Speak with one of our experienced Chicago attorneys at Vicario Law Group, LLC. today and find out how receiving DACA could help you accomplish your immigration goals in the U.S.

Deferred Action Green Card

DACA does not grant permanent resident status (“green card”) and it is not a permanent benefit. However, DACA beneficiaries receive employment authorization and some may receive a travel permit on a limited basis.

DACA is an invaluable immigration benefit for those facing removal proceedings or for those in the custody of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (“ICE”).

Contact us online or call (312) 698-9066 to schedule your consultation.

Determining Eligibility for DACA

Undocumented individuals seeking DACA benefits must meet a set of eligibility requirements.

DACA applicants must:

  • Have been under the age of 31 as of June 15, 2012
  • Have come to the U.S. before turning 16
  • Have continuously resided in the U.S. since June 15, 2007
  • Have been physically present in the U.S. since 15, 2012
  • Currently be in school, have graduated from high school, have a GED, or be an honorably discharged U.S. veteran
  • Not have been convicted of a felony, a significant misdemeanor, or more than three other misdemeanors
  • Not post a threat to national security or public safety

If you meet these requirements, you may be eligible for protection from removal under DACA. Vicario Law Group, LLC. can also help if you are currently a DREAMer and need to renew your DACA status.
