I have two arrest record. Am I eligible for 6/15 deferred action for childhood arrival?

West Covina, CA |

First I would like to thank all the lawyers for answering my concern. Okay so, back in 2008 and 2009 (not sure exact date)
I have been arrested for domestic violence but the case never went to court got dismissed both of the case
Would this affect my process of the deferred action for childhood arrival?
Do I have any chances ?

Please any answers would be appreciated thankx!

Would expunging the record help?

If the cases were dismissed, then there is no conviction. There is no need to expunge because there is nothing to expunge. Your record will show "arrested" and dismissed. You can't erase the fact that you were arrested. What matters is whether you were convicted or not.

I am not sure what you mean by deferred action for childhood arrival. Please explain.

Since you were not convicted the will not make you in eligible for DACA. Consult with a competent immigration attorney. It could not hurt to expunge the arrest if your state will allow you.

First I would confirm the cases were dismissed. Once confirmed if you meet the rest of the criteria for DACA you should not have a problem.

This advice does not create an attorney client relationship and should only be used for informational purposes.

You should request your criminal records from the state and then speak to a qualified immigration attorney who specializes in Deferred Action such as myself or any one of my several colleagues.
