Immigration Law Questions? Ask an Immigration Lawyer.
Hi my name isXXXXX came to the United States when I was 15 (In Sept 15,2008) now I'm 20 years old (so in Sept 15, 2013 will be 5 years). I finished High School so I have GED diploma. I'm currently in community college. I didn't have any problem with law. So do I qualify for any program to get legalized? I just want to work legally and apply for a scholarship. If so, what I have to do? Thank You.
Hello,my name is Judith. Thank you for this opportunity to answer your questions.
Yes, you should be eligible for Deferred Action
You may request consideration of deferred action for childhood arrivals if you:
Anyone requesting consideration for deferred action under this process must have been under 31 years old as of June 15, 2012. You must also be at least 15 years or older to request deferred action.
Here is the link to the form I-812D; I-764; G-1145
Do I have to pay taxes to get accepted? I hear that paying taxes is one of the requirements.
How I actually can do that? I do not have any IRS number or anything like that.
Paying back taxes is not required for deferred action.
What you are hearing is what is required under the new proposed immigration reform law.
Thank You so much! You're a great expert!
