"The key to immigration law is experience and details. We have the experience that comes with processing family petitions, business visas, and over 30 years of courtroom experience. When it comes to an asylum petition or an appeal to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, we know there is no substitute for a conversation to identify the details we need for success. Our site is designed to give you an overview of several immigration processes before making an appointment for your free consultation."

Deferred Action - Work Authorization - Childhood Arrivals

President Obama's 2012 Executive Order grants California High School Students and Graduates the right to apply of work permits, NV driver’s licenses and Protection from Deportation for 2 years. To qualify one must have arrived in the U.S. before the age of 16, have been continuously present in the U.S. since July 2007, be a person of good moral character and currently under the age of 32 as June 2012. In addition to prequalifying you, our lawyers will take a history of the Immigration Status of your parents or other family members to see if they qualify for an immigration benefit as well.


Under the President’s new Executive Order of November 2014, deferred action for early arrivals (under 16 years old at time of U.S. entry) has been extended for 3 years. In addition, the 32 year age limit has been lifted and presence must be established as of January 2010 from July 2007, making more early arrivals eligible for these important immigration benefits. President Obama’s 11/14 Executive Order allows parents of U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents, who have 5 years continuous presence in the U.S. (since Jan 1st 2010) to apply for 3 years work authorization and deferred action from deportation. The proposed filing date of May 31st 2015 has been postponed pending a 5th Circuit Court of Appeals decision on whether the President has the authority to issue that Executive Order.


Our immigration attorneys are of the opinion the President’s Order will be upheld by the Federal Courts.
