On November 20, 2014, the President announced a program allowing parents of U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents who have been in the country since January 1, 2010, to request deferred action and employment authorization for three years, in a new Deferred Action for Parental Accountability (DAPA) program.
Who is eligible? An undocumented individual living in the United States who, on the date of the announcement is the parent of a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident.
What are Requirements? Allow parents to request deferred action and employment authorization if they:
- Have continuous residence in the United States since January 1, 2010;
- Are the parents of a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident born on or before November 20, 2014; and
- Are not an enforcement priority for removal from the United States,When do Applications Begin? Approximately 180 days following the President’s November 20, 2014, announcement.
While USCIS is not accepting applications at this time for deferred action, prepare now by gathering documentation that establishes your identity, relationship to a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident; and continuous residence in the United States over the last five years or more.
