Deferred Action

There has been a great deal of both excitement and confusion since the June 15 announcement by the Obama Administration that it will implement a new policy sparing many undocumented youth from deportation and and permit them to apply for a work permit under the provisions of Deferred Action.

We have prepared two Applicant Guides (one in English and one in Spanish) to assist pro se applicants to put together strong applications on their own and also to help individuals seeking legal assistance to organize their documents in a complete and effective way. You can find these guides below:
