Immigrants may be entitled to deferred action if they are considered a childhood arrival to the United States. As of June 15, 2012, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) began to allow deferred action to specific individuals who immigrants to the U.S. This provision was made possible through the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act.
To be eligible for deferred action as a DREAMer, you must fulfill the following requirements:
At Mayeaux & Associates Law Firm, our immigration lawyers in Baton Rouge are devoted to helping clients apply for deferred action. If you qualify, you will receive authorization to work, a driver's license, and many other benefits. We encourage you to take every opportunity to stay in the country.
The process for filing for deferred action can began by collecting documents that contain evidence that you meet the required guidelines we have listed above. We can help you complete the USCIS forms I-821D and I-765. After gathering the documents, you will mail the forms and fees. Afterward, you will need to make a scheduled biometrics services appointment at the USCIS Application Support Center in your area.
The interaction of the criminal justice system and our immigration system can tear families apart. Detention creates incredible financial and emotional tolls on the families of those who have been detained. A person may have been detained in California and then sent to Louisiana. It is hard to overstate the impact detention has on families. We can help you pursue a bond hearing as soon as possible to help ensure your release from detention. Our experience and skill can help you secure a bond hearing in a short amount of time and can help you secure a reasonable bond.
At Mayeaux & Associates, we understand the dire situation many immigrants face once they are in detention. With so few lawyers and so many people detained at the LaSalle Detention Facility, we have gone to great lengths to help as many people as we could. In the past, attorney Kenneth Mayeaux developed a legal orientation program to help educate detainees on their legal rights. While the program is no longer in place, we still work to make ourselves as available as possible to help detainees. Our experience helping detainees to navigate the immigration system and to enforce their rights can be invaluable to those who are detained and their loved ones.
When you or a loved one has been detained prior to deportation, you cannot afford to work with anything less than the most effective legal representation. At Mayeaux & Associates, we are dedicated to giving people the help they need. To schedule a free consultation, call 225-754-4477 or contact us online.
