Got A Dui 6 Years Ago, Can I Still Get Approved For Daca?

Recommended Posts

All that I know is the case was closed.

 

I will call tomorrow & find out if the violations were dismissed.

 

Is there another thread that talks further about DUI cases in here Theresa? I've talked to Immigration Lawyers but they all say I don't qualify.

Do you have a copy of the document? The document I posted is from a close friend so I know it is possible and worth a shot. I know there were some people in the forum who got approved with DUI as well. My friend did not use a lawyer but did send that document with the packet. Check my post on how to send a complete package and follow the directions. Again, It's a personal decision but if you are not a threat to USA and get denied, you just get denied.

I have a copy.

 

My copy does not look like that. It's a package detailing all my payments & counts at the end it says case closed.

 

What's the name of the post?

Example Of A Complete Daca Packet

04 May 2014 - 11:07 AM

Continuous presence evidence ( in chronological order photos on the front, check next, then the completed forms, etc. ). Most of it was school ids and papers, bank statements, immunization cards, doctors papers, rent contracts,

10. I sent one proof of every year from 1989-2006 (this also showed I was 15 to prove I was her before I was 16)

9. Proof of June 15, 2007 I sent something that showed the closest, (3 days before and a 5 days after)

8. Proof every 3 months from October 2007 to march 2012 (if you are just sending you application, you need send one proof every trimester of 2013 as well and we are currently on the third trimester)

I sent 4 papers a year for the continuous presence from June 15, 2007 to The present time ( 1 every 3 months/trimester)

You divide each year in 4 like this,

January, February, March (anything from this trimester)

April, May, June (anything)

July, August, September (anything)

October, November, December (anything)

7. Proof of June 15, 2012 here I had a bank statement that showed my transactions on that day

6. High school Diploma, GED or registration and school attendance if enrolled in school towards GED

5. Birth certificate with notarized translation ( and anyone who is bilingual other than you can translated and notarize it).

4. Passport and other school ID's

3. Forms I-821D, I-765, I-765ws, G-1145

2. Cashiers check of $465 made out to US DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY

Hello guys. I lived in the state of Texas. In 2010, i got charged with a DUI. it is my first and only offense. when i heard first about DACA, i talked to several lawyers but all said i didn't qualify, so i never applied. i knew i deserved that since i had put myself in that situation. I have learned from my mistake. i finished probation and paid all my fines. i turned my life around and decided to finished college. i now have an associate degree and currently working on my second associates and my bachelors degree. what i would like to know if anyone in the state of Texas has  been approved for DACA with DUI in their record? I have heard that most cases involving a dui have been denied. I am so scare to apply. is there any hope for people like myself? I totally understand the gravity of my actions and learned from it. I just want to move forward and continue educating myself and be part of this great country.

Joan I'm in the same boat.

 

I have a DUI that happen on 2007 I was like you "Afraid"

 

Don't be.

 

I send my package with copies of my arrest & court papers. I attached letters from my local church,friends & family member speaking on my behalf.

 

On the USCIS I read the part about Significant Misdemeanor that you're disqualified if you have that.But it also said there's "Exceptional Circumstances" I wrote that I need to help mom & my younger brother that lives with me (US citizen) things like that.

 

You have nothing loose.You won't get deported the only that will happen if you don't qualified is loose your money.But it's an investment for your future...

 

I'm being hopeful that I do qualified.

Hello everyone! 

 

@Theresa, is what state if your friend from? the one who got approved with a DUI? Did she filed herself or she got a lawyer?

@ Vik are you from CA? I can't wait to hear your outcome! Unfortunately, I'm in the same boat as you. :-(

Does anybody else has been approved from other states besides CA?
