Deferred Action For Childhood Arrivals (DACA)

Deferred action is a use of prosecutorial discretion to defer removal action against an individual for a certain period of time. Individuals who came to the United States as children and meet certain specific guidelines may request consideration of deferred action for a period of two years. This deferred action is also subject to renewal after the initial two years has elapsed. Petitioners granted deferrals are also eligible to legally work in the United States. However, deferred action does not provide lawful immigration status.

There are a number of restrictions as to who can apply for deferred status. At Briles & Associates, in Irvine, our lawyers can counsel you on deferral and guide you through the process. Whether you are seeking an initial deferral or renewal of an initial deferral, we have the expertise to help you attain your immigration goals.
