Atlanta Immigration Lawyers Protecting Your Rights Under DACA

Last updated on April 17, 2024

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is a law allowing some individuals brought to the country as children to receive a two-year period to defer the action of deportation. During this period, they may seek a work permit. DACA protects immigrant youth from deportation and allows them to contribute more fully to their communities and the United States.

At Zambrano & Ruiz, LLC, we stand with the Dreamers. Our immigration law attorneys make a difference in the lives of immigrant youth throughout Marietta and the greater Atlanta area. We bring dedication and a deep understanding to each case, especially for those seeking guidance on DACA-related issues. Our own personal connections to the immigrant Latino community drive us to work tirelessly on behalf of our clients.

What Are The Benefits Of DACA, And Who Qualifies For It?

DACA offers numerous benefits, including:

  • Delay of deportation
  • Work authorization
  • Ability to apply for a Social Security number
  • Access to driver’s licenses and educational opportunities

To be eligible for DACA, you must meet the following criteria:

  • Arrived in the U.S. before turning 16
