U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) just issued an awaited announcement that it will begin accepting requests for what is called “expanded DACA” on February 18, 2015. When the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program was originally instituted by the Obama administration back in 2012, applicants could obtain an eligibility card for a period of two years. Under the revamped program which President Obama announced in November of last year, applicants will be able to obtain relief from deportation for renewable three-year periods.

In addition, the USCIS is expanding the population eligible for DACA program to people of any current age who entered the United States before the age of 16 and lived in the United States continuously since January 1, 2010.  The agency will not be accepting applications before that date and makes clear on its website to beware of those individuals who seek to take advantage of potential applicants by claiming they can aid in procuring DACA status for them prior to such date.  

The USCIS does provide a page wherein such applicants can get placed on a list to receive emailed updates of any developments related to the procedure to apply for a DACA permit. The goal is to ensure that people will follow accurate instructions concerning the process needed to be allowed to stay in the United States under the DACA program. It is strongly recommended that people who may qualify for DACA relief consult with immigration counsel in their vicinity who can provide advice and help on the proper way to apply for a DACA card.

To make the long story short - I wouldn't be here now writing this review if it wasn't for him. He fought with me and for me as if he was defending himself and not some stranger from a foreign country. I will highly recommend him - if your case has any chance at all he is the one you need.
