I'm sending the application for my 2 daughters (17 and 15 years old).
they came to USA in 1999.
I have school record, medical exam, criminal record ( clean ), I have a document about community service, medical history, letters from friends talking about their good moral and characte, school id, and copies of their passport, showing the date their entered in the USA , I-94, and the last passport they have. but the passport is expired since may 2012. can this be a problem?
If your daughters are not in removal proceedings at the present time applying for deferred action may not be a good idea. Note that deferred action will defer removal (deportation) for two years and will not provide legal status. However, it will allow your daughters to file for employment authorization. Your younger daughter is too young to work within the 2 year period so this filing may not provide any benefits to her. Please consult with an Immigration attorney before filing to discuss risks and benefits of this program.
