Who is eligible for Administrative Relief?


Calendar.pngPresident Obama has created two different groups who are potentially eligible for Administrative Relief.

Deferred Action for Parents (DAP)  Parents of United States Citizens or Lawful Permanent Residents (“green card” holders), who have lived in the U.S. continuously since January 1, 2010.

Expanded DACA  Undocumented immigrants (regardless of your current age or whether or not you have any children) who:

  • Have been living in the U.S. continually since January 1, 2010
  • were under 16 at the time of arrival
  • meet certain educational requirements and other criteria
    • You do not have to be enrolled in school right now to qualify. MRNY can help you get into a qualifying educational program 

NOTE:  If you have ever been arrested or had problems with the police you should talk to a lawyer BEFORE applying!
