What to do
If you are applying for the first time, see if you are eligible
You can qualify for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) if you:
- Were born after June 15, 1981;
- Came to the United States before your 16th birthday;
- Were physically present in the U.S. on June 15, 2012 and when applying for DACA;
- Had no lawful status on June 15, 2012;
- Have continuously lived in the U.S. from June 15, 2007 until present;
- Meet certain educational requirements or were honorably discharged from the U.S. Armed Forces; and
- Have not been convicted of certain crimes.
If you think you are eligible to apply for DACA, you can sign up for a free virtual workshop on January 26, 2021. At the workshop, you will get updates on the DACA program, free consultation with an attorney, and sign up for help with your application.
