- She was under the age of 31 as of June 15, 2002, and
- She entered the U.S. without inspection before June 15, 2012, or her lawful immigration status expired as of June 15, 2012, and

CHALLENGE: Consideration for Deferred Action is actually a more straight forward type of cases. This particular procedure is a channel for President Obama to fulfill his promise of protecting DREAMERS residing in the U.S. At the time of this application, so long as the client fits ALL OF THE AFOREMENTIONED CRITERIA, our argument on behalf of the client is likely to be approved. Timely changes have occurred after President Obama outlined his executive actions on November 20, 2014. Eligibility for Consideration for Deferred Action, though extended in terms of age, does not apply to anyone who enters the U.S. illegally in 2014.
ABOUT SEVEN MONTHS AFTER BIOMETRICS APPOINTMENT, our client received her approval.
