DAPA Guidelines Imminent

Contributed by Koby Polaski, Senior Attorney

On January 5, 2015, we anticipate that the Obama Administration will release additional guidelines regarding the implementation of Deferred Action for Parental Accountability (DAPA).

Pursuant to President Obama’s Executive Action on immigration, we know that DAPA applicants must have lived in the United States since January 1, 2010; have a US citizen or Lawful Permanent Resident child; paid taxes in the United States for the last five years; and the applicant must not be an enforcement priority of Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Although we have general information, the anticipated guidelines should address many unanswered questions and will hopefully provide critical information on the implementation and application procedure for the DAPA program.

Stay tuned to our blog for the latest developments, or call Joseph & Hall P.C. at (303) 297-9171 to set up an appointment to discuss your eligibility for DAPA.
