In 2012, President Obama’s administration announced Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, also known as DACA, a program that allows us to live and work in the United States legally, with the possibility of renewal every two years.

If you, your son, or daughter came to the United States prior to June 15, 2007, were under 16 years old, and meet other requirements, there’s a possibility you or your child may qualify for deferred action.

En el 2012, la administración del presidente Obama, nos otorgó La Acción Diferida, que es una estadía legal y un permiso de trabajo, con la posibilidad de renovarlos cada dos años.

Si Ud. Su hijo o hija llego a los Estados Unidos antes del 15 de Junio del 2007, tenía menos de 16 años, y cumple con otros requisitos, ay una posibilidad que califique para la Acción Diferida como yo y otros 450,000 jóvenes a nivel nacional.

Si Ud. Ya fue otorgado la Acción Diferida va a poder renovarla comenzando 150 días antes de la fecha de vencimiento.
