Daca and voluntary departure in 2010

San Diego, CA |

Hi I was stopped by border patrol August of 2010 while working and I got taken into their office and I signed a voluntary departure. I came back two weeks after without inspection and I was wondering if I can apply for the deferred action. I have been in the US my whole life and I have 2 kids now. I meet all the requirements except that I have that voluntary departure.

  3. That departure may have interrupted the continuous residence requirement. Worth setting up a consultation with experienced attorney.

    Due to the nature of this forum, I often do not have all the information required to provide legal advice. Accordingly, my responses on Avvo are intended as general and not legal advice.
