Deportation Protections Through Executive Action Programs

The Trump administration has taken a harder line on deportation than its predecessor. Immigration enforcement is up, putting millions of undocumented people at risk of deportation.

As of summer 2017, however, the administration announced that it is leaving intact-for now-one deportation-protection program initiated by President Obama, called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals or “DACA” for short.

DACA: Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is temporary relief from deportation for people who were brought to the United States as children. With DACA you may be eligible for work and travel authorization.

We Can Help You Seek Legal Status?

At Ozment Law, our attorneys are dedicated to helping you and your family obtain legal status so you can stay in the U.S. without the constant worry of deportation. We have already helped hundreds of young people in and around Nashville, and throughout Middle Tennessee who were brought here by their parents, referred to as “Dreamers,” successfully apply for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

Our main goal is to see if you qualify for any available program. We are honest about your chances of obtaining legal status, whether temporary or permanent.

What Criteria Must You Meet For DACA Protection?

The DACA or “deferred action” program is administrative relief from the danger of deportation and includes many possible benefits such as a work authorization permit. The program is intended to serve:

  • Children who arrived in the U.S. before their 16th birthday
  • Were under 31 on June 13, 2012, when the executive order on DACA was issued
  • Are in school, have graduated or obtained a GED, or were honorable discharged from the military or the Coast Guard
  • Have not been convicted of certain criminal offenses or otherwise pose a public safety or national security threat

Do You Qualify For a Green Card Or Some Other Legal Status?

Our attorneys will review your situation thoroughly to see if you qualify for a deferred action program, or if there is a better solution to gain legal immigration status. Though deferred action does not lead to permanent status, by talking with us you may learn that you qualify for a “green card” or some other benefit. We will find the best option for you and your family.

If you have any sort of prior criminal record you should work with a lawyer to obtain legal status. Our law firm is one of the few that does a thorough review of your criminal history to determine whether there will be any impediments to deferred action, legal permanent resident status or citizenship.
