My boyfriend applied for DACA in 2012 and was approved. Great news, right? Well, everything was going great until very recently
He was arrested for a dui and charged for a tier 1 dui as a 1st offense and only 3 month suspension. Since his daca doesn't expire until this October, is there any way he can still be considered? He is a good hard working person! Everyone makes mistakes and I can't believe how many US citizens can get away with worse crimes and still be forgiven in society but one terrible mistake for an unfortunate person and their whole life shatters. Is there any hope? Please?
It is not entirely clear to me either way that a traffic offense of DWI would be a disqualifier. Speak with a...
I got an underage drinking citation when I was 18 in NJ. I got it knocked down to an ordinance but recently got a separate underage drinking citation in PA at the age of 20. Will my NJ record impact my punishment from the judge in PA?
not if you received an ordinance in the initial offense.
I was convicted of DUI in Florida in 2009. I served out all fines, and was placed on county probation.
I was homeless and living in my truck at that time. My officer said I could move to NJ with family where I had stability. I had difficulty getting into classes and violated. I eventually got the classes done and filed in Florida, but not the required community service. Public defender in Florida advised me that it would not be accepted because it was worked in NJ. I was also advised that I may be charged with felony absconding even though I had permission to move. I only see a no extradite VOP active. I now have a full time job, my own home, and a life in NJ. Is there any way for me to resolve this without going to Florida and turning myself in?
This question needs to be addressed to a FL attorney
My boyfriend just got convicted of a tier 1 dui. Is there any chance that he can renew his DACA before it expires?
He only got a 3 month suspension with fines. He is already protected with DACA as of right now, but it expires this fall. I know (unfortunately only after he got arrested for the dui) that dui's are significant misdemeanors that typically disqualify a person from being eligible for DACA. Is here any hope out there that he may be able to renew or re-qualify for DACA? We tried fighting with what we thought was a reputable DUI attorney. He had great testimonials and was very professional, but when it came to game day, he simply went for the settlement and not the fight. It was very expensive and we didn't have any other options. I've researched but haven't found many cases similar to ours on the internet, hence why I am asking the question. I'm seeking advice from immigration lawyers as well.
Yes, it is possible. Make sure to talk to a reputable immigration attorney.
