  1. Has anyone been able to get Obama care with DACA? Living in California? Or do you need to be a resident?
  2. Life After Daca

    That's awesome! Congrats to you! Keep making it happen...but just never forget your struggles and where you cam from..
  3. I want to become a licensed real estate agent...but I am not sure if I can with DACA. I read there guidelines and it says that "you must be able to proof 'legal presence '" Am i able to? Ain't I technically still illegal? ..and just being protected from deportation? I don't know, help anyone...
  4. Prior to getting approved by DACA I always did my taxes with an ITIN number. How do I go about transferring all that income into my new social. Has anyone done it yet? and if so, how did that go? Thanks!
  5. Denied Bcuz Felony!

    What is your felony? Was it a dui or something else?
  6. @Susana I think you should definitely apply! But make sure that DUI gets expunged and seal prior to you applying. Yes, you do need to be honest on application and list your charge. Many lawyers will tell you not to apply because you are an automatic disqualification due t the dui , but that's not true! Consult with many until you find the right one. I consulted with a few and 3/4 attorneys told me no way don't apply! But one attorney said I can't guarantee you an approval but it's definitely worth a shot. So I went for it. I was also scared of getting it denied but I got approved about 12 months later! It was a "hell" wait...but worth it! The lawyer will submit all the evidence necessary to build you a good case. But you wanna provide him/her with plenty of evidence showing how your character/conduct has changed after the DUI incident. So this can include college degrees, any volunteer work, marriage certificates, grades report etc.. I hope this helps...keep us posted and GOOD LUCK!
  7. Life After Daca Is Great!! But ...

    Great advice! Thank you! I have not checked with BofA so I will go there next. I don't need credit cards...my spouse makes enough for us BUT i do NEED credit...maybe one day i wanna buy something or get a student loan and of course they will want me to have good credit standing. I appreciate your advice! Thanks!
  8. Terrified :(

    That sucks that happened to you, jerks! However, whatever it is you should still submit the GED cert now, if USCIS declines you just reapply. But I would send the a letter explaining what happened to you. Good luck
  9. Life after DACA has been awesome!. After getting my license (passing on the first try with only ONE wrong) my hubby rewarded me with a brand new car! It's been a month and though it is great it has been an adjustment ...I am currently looking for a higher paying job and interviews are not easy! Lot's of competition out there. It's been tuff with the credit card situation...no one will let me borrow because there is no credit line history ..DUH this is a brand new social security number lol. I don't know how I will start credit because im not getting a chance... DACA is helpful but doesn't mean that life will be easy... But I won't give up ..this is just the beginning. I will continue to DREAM big and work HARD! No matter the struggles I am always GRATEFUL for the opportunities! Good Luck to all!!!
  10. Yes, i know. This happened when i was young and dumb (7 years ago) fortunately for me I still got approved and I am grateful!
  11. Thanks! I got approved!! Never getting a DUI again! Have too much to lose

  13. After Waiting 12 Long Months.....i Got Approved!!!

    Thank you ALL!! Congrats to all that have been accepted. and for those that are still waiting I know it's hard because I have been there but just be patient and don't lose hope! Your time will come..
  14. I am so happy I am finally approved!!!! Today I ran my second 5k at Universal Studios Hollywood...and the whole time I was telling myself to run faster and not stop because after today my life would change. I finished 10 minutes faster than my first 5k. This has been the best weekend ever, not to mention that the permit will be arriving this Monday , Cinco de Mayo.. (((( on MY BIRTHDAY!!!!))))). What an awesome gift.... Thank you all for your support!! ..and don't lose patience I am still hopeful that one day we will ALL be granted path to Citizenship!

      @romero509 I was 20 years old when I got the DUI, prior to applying for DACA I went to a lawyer paid him to help me expunge the misdemeanor. My DACA was approved after 12 months exactly! Hope this helps
