Lawyers for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and Deferred Action for Parental Accountability (DAPA)

Immigration Attorneys Serving Illinois and Across the U.S.

Immigration laws are constantly changing, and it is often difficult to find answers to even basic immigration law-related questions from an attorney who does not specialize in this area of law. This becomes even more challenging with more complex inquiries.

Two areas of immigration law that often are very confusing are the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and Deferred Action for Parents of Americans (DAPA) programs. These two programs have the potential to help many families obtain temporary permission to remain in the United States, so it is important for immigrants to understand their provisions. While the expanded DACA and DAPA programs have been placed on temporary hold, an individual who is already in deferred action programs can reapply for continued participation or pursue a new application if eligible for other relief.

Since immigration law is dynamic, complex, and often confusing, a knowledgeable immigration law attorney is the most reliable source for immigration-related information. Immigration law attorney Mary Helen Reyna of Reyna Law Office, P.C. understands that each immigration law client has unique circumstances and specific goals and priorities. Ms. Reyna is uniquely qualified to assist her immigration law clients in obtaining the results they seek in their immigration cases.

What is Deferred Action?

Deferred action is a form of administrative relief that can prevent deportation by granting a foreign national temporary permission to remain in the United States, as well as permission to apply for a work permit and, in many cases, a driver’s license. Ms. Reyna is highly experienced in handling deferred action cases and is dedicated to helping each immigration law client who has questions, wants to apply, or seeks renewal of deferred action. When a person is facing deportation, Ms. Reyna is committed to pursuing deferred action if it is applicable to the circumstances of the case. For many people, this is a crucial lifeline before deportation.

DAPA and Extended/Expanded DACA

Although the expanded DACA and DAPA programs are currently on hold, any individual who already is in a deferred action program can reapply for continued participation. New applications for certain programs may also be pursued. Further, DAPA and expanded DACA may become available at some point in the future, so Reyna Law Office, P.C. is committed to making information about these programs available to any person who is interested in applying for them in the future. An immigration law attorney is an extremely reliable source of immigration-related information for many communities. Ms. Reyna takes her role as source of comprehensive and understandable information seriously as she assists each client in achieving his or her immigration-related goals in the Bolingbrook and surrounding communities.

There are many different issues that arise during an immigration case and it is crucial to respond appropriately and in a timely manner. Whether a client needs to renew their application for deferred action or accomplish some other goal with regard to the DACA or DAPA programs, Reyna Law Office, P.C. can help. In addition, Ms. Reyna and her team can assist with many other immigration-related matters. To schedule an appointment, contact Reyna Law Office, P.C. at 630-759-0101.
