Atlanta DACA Attorney

DACA & Employment Authorization in Georgia

The DACA program was created by the Obama administration in 2012. The DACA program allows certain undocumented individuals who entered the United States as children to receive a renewable, temporary period of deferred action from deportation and eligibility for a work permit.

Our DACA attorney in Atlanta can help you navigate the program and help you renew your DACA benefits.

Schedule your consultation by calling (404) 620-6822 or contacting a DACA lawyer near you online.

DACA Benefits

DACA benefits can be granted for a period of 3 years and can be renewed. DACA recipients are also eligible for an Employment Authorization Document (EAD) that allows them to legally work in the United States.

DACA recipients are not directly eligible for permanent residency or citizenship.

However, DACA recipients may be eligible for permanent residency and, eventually, citizenship through other.


Family Sponsorship: If a U.S. citizen or permanent resident family member sponsors a DACA recipient, they may be eligible to apply for a green card. The process can be complex and subject to certain eligibility criteria.

Employment-Based Green Cards: DACA recipients may be eligible for employment-based green cards if they secure a job offer from a U.S. employer willing to sponsor them.

Special Programs: Some DACA recipients may qualify for certain immigration programs, such as U visas (for crime victims), T visas (for human trafficking victims), or asylum.

Marriage to a U.S. Citizen: DACA recipients who marry a U.S. citizen may be eligible for a marriage-based green card.

Diversity Visa (DV) Lottery: DACA recipients can participate in the annual Diversity Visa Lottery if they meet the eligibility requirements, which can lead to a green card.

Legislative Reform: Changes in immigration laws or the passage of new legislation could provide a pathway to permanent residency and citizenship for DACA recipients. However, this is subject to political developments.

What Should I Do If I'm Considering DACA?
