DREAM Deferred Action Approvals Arriving

DREAM Act approvals are starting to trickle in.  Here is a copy of a recent application which was approved in approximately 5 weeks.  It is representative of a typical case.  A Mexican national entered the US without a visa fifteen years ago when he was a child.  He graduated from high school and was working in the US without authorization.  During his 15 years in the US, he had some minor court issues but nothing rising to the level of a serious misdemeanor.  Now, with his approved deferred action, he is safe from removal for at least two years and may be able to work legally in the United States.  If you are in a similar situation, we can help you.  Contact us at 312-751-9960, by email at info@messersmithlaw.com or visit our DREAM Act website for more information.

    I have a question about where to locate information regarding the necessity of filing paperwork for Deferred Action or not when seeking a work permit for a J2 dependent daughter, aged 16.

    It appears to me that she only needs to complete the I-175 form and worksheet and submit with the $380 in order to get a work permit.

    How do we verify whether a Deferred Status should be filed along with the I-175?
