    Lawyers agree

    Answered . Many of these questions cannot be answered at this time, but here's what we do know--and more importantly some good sources for up to date, reliable information:

    We know there will be a fee, but we do not know how much or whether a fee waiver will be available.

    DHS has said more information will be available August 1, but what information will be provided is not known; almost certainly, several questions will remain unanswered.

    The requirements for the program look simple, but anyone who practices immigration law will tell you that looks are deceiving. Even an applicant who looks like they have no isues as far as criminal history or immigration problems is coming "out of the shadows," providing detailed personal information about their status to the government, and potentially risking deportation. For many, that risk may be one they see as worth taking, but everyone should see a competent immigration lawyer BEFORE deciding whether to proceed. Only someone who knows immigration law and process can evaluate a case, identify the risks and in many cases, identify other avenues for gaining a legal immigration status (one which might even be better than deferred action).

    In short, see a qualified immigration lawyer to make sure DACA (we now know the government acronym--Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) is both safe and smart. Use the American Immigration Lawyers Association referral service to find a lawyer in your area: Listings on that site are for members of the nation's premier bar for immigraton lawyers, have been in practice for at least two years and carry malpractice insurance.

    Good resources for up to date information are found at:,, and If you think you have been scammed, report it--before the bad guys trick someone else! All information also available in Spanish.

    Protect yourself--stay informed.
