Anyone with a criminal record (or who has ever been arrested) should see a competent immigration lawyer before filing a DACA application. Remember, applicants with certain types of conviction (e.g. DUI) may end up being removed (deported) because the file a DACA application which brings their criminal record under CIS scrutiny.
Just one DUI conviction is OKAY for filing DACA, but make sure to have the court's final disposition document showing that you complied & completed all the court ordered requirements. Only when you have three (3) misdemeanor convictions or more is it not OK to file for DACA.
