Dream Act: Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals

The Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors or "Dream" Act is a new option for those looking to legally work in the United States. This Act offers conditional permanent residency for the children of certain undocumented residents of good moral character. In August of 2012, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) began accepting applications for consideration of deferred action for childhood arrivals. If you or one of your loved ones meets the following criteria, you need to contact the law offices of Kroscher & Kroscher, P.C. to discuss obtaining a lawful status in the United States under the Dream Act.

Requirements for applications under the Dream Act are:

  • You were under the age of 31 as of June 15, 2012.
  • You came to the United States before your sixteenth (16th) birthday.
  • You have continuously resided in the United States since June 15, 2007.
  • You entered without inspection before June 15, 2012, or your lawful immigration status expired as of June 15, 2012.
  • You have a high school diploma or its equivalent, and if you have been enrolled in the United States military, you are of good standing or have been honorably discharged.
  • You have not been convicted of a felony, significant misdemeanor, three or more other misdemeanors, and do not otherwise pose a threat to national security of the United States or to the general public safety.
