Jean Miller, Esq will present on the new Deferred Action   [acción diferida] immigration policy. The topics to be covered  are, in part:

  • Who is eligible? What are the five requirements?  Which are easy?  Which are problematic?
  • Is this the same as the DREAM Act?  (No.) What is the difference? What rights / privileges does one gain upon approval by USCIS (right to work, etc.)?
  • Is this the same as “Amnesty”?  (No.)  How is it different?
  • What is the (rather detailed) process to submit an application?  (Forms, forms, more forms and proofs)?  What are the costs (fee to USCIS, ~$465)?
  • How will this law, and its potential benefits, affect the way we lawyer, judge and otherwise work professionally with the Spanish-speaking community?
  • Where can I learn more about this law so that I can encourage my eligible clients to take advantage of this great opportunity?
