WHAT DO YOU NEED TO REQUEST INITIAL DACA

WHAT IS DACA?

On June 15, 2012, the Secretary of Homeland Security announced that certain people who came to the United States as children and meet the guidelines, mentioned in this article, may request consideration of deferred action for a period of two years, subject to renewal. This deferred action states they are also eligible for work authorization. Deferred action is a used of prosecutorial discretion to defer removal action against an individual for a certain period. Deferred action does not provide lawful status.

What is the Petition to Remove Conditions on Residence?

The application I-751 is also known as the Petition to Remove Conditions on Residence. Usually, this is the next step to follow once you have gained a conditional permanent resident. 

Whether you get married to a US citizen or legal permanent resident in the US, or were brought to the US as a fiancé(e) and then married a US citizen, the conditional permanent residency you’re provided is only valid for two years, and cannot be renewed.  

For that, you need to petition to have one’s imposed conditions be removed from a permanent resident status.
