The documents required for Deferred Action, the DACA program, are a big hurdle to people. An undocumented immigrant living in the United States is not likely to keep records of certain receipts such as money orders and rent bills. These are, for example, two documents that could establish presence in the U.S. on June 15, 2012. For the most part, an undocumented immigrant is going to try to keep a very low-key profile, trying to not only not stand out but also trying to not keep too much proof of transactions.
Getting paid under the table and using different names is commonplace for most undocumented people. The USCIS, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, states that documents that are believed to be relevant can be submitted. This is vague and a bit frightening because the agency doesn’t clarify if the fraud that has been committed by using fake documentation will affect you if you are not selected for the program.
Making sure that you are eligible for Deferred Action is therefore the most important part of the whole process. Applying for DACA on a whim is not an option. This will only put fear in you and leave you in an uncertain position. Check to see if you are eligible to the DACA program with our free eligibility quiz.
After eligibility is established, we can help you fill out your DACA application and gather your documents through our step-by-step process. Remember that Deferred Action went into effect just last month. This program was unheard of five months ago, so as an eligible applicant, you have not had the time to prepare all of the required documentation the USCIS is asking for.
