What is Deferred Action?
Deferred Action refers to the process certain individuals can seek in order to obtain removal relief. These individuals, also known as DREAMers, are individuals who were brought to the U.S. as young children and don’t pose a threat to national security. Our firm can help you determine if you are eligible for Deferred Action.

How can I petition for asylum?
If returning to your native country places your life and safety in danger, you may be able to petition for asylum. An individual who petitions for asylum must prove that he or she would face persecution for their religious beliefs, political views, or race, for example.
