Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is an agreement by the U.S. government not to deport certain individuals. It is not a guarantee of a green card or citizenship. Having an attorney for your DACA petition is not required. However, if you would like to eventually achieve legal status in the United States, having an experienced immigration attorney on your side can be helpful for you and your family. Here are some reasons you should consider hiring an attorney for your DACA petition:
You likely have little experience dealing with United States immigration law and may not know all the necessary processes. An experienced immigration attorney knows the hurdles that lie ahead and how to approach each step. An attorney deals with these laws every day and knows the ins and outs of filing immigration applications and how to win your case.
Even if you clearly qualify for DACA, having the right paperwork is what counts. An experienced immigration attorney can make sure that you have all the right paperwork put together the first time, so you have the best chance of success. You’re probably busy caring for your family, working, or studying to get top grades. You don’t have time to handle all of the details involved in your petition. An attorney can handle everything and let you move on with your life.
Sometimes the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) makes a mistake and denies an application that should clearly be approved. If this is the case for you, an experienced immigration attorney can help you fight for your rights and stand by you during the process. They will work hard until the government finally gets it right.
With an experienced attorney, like those at Serving Immigrants, on your side, you can rest assured that your application is being handled thoroughly. It is one more thing you won’t have to worry about. A successful application means getting your work permit, social security number, and driver’s license now and not later. This will help you on your way to legal status in the United States.
