    Answering this question does not create an attorney-client relationship between us. The answer given is for informational purposes only and is not a substitute for contacting an attorney licensed to practice in your jurisdiction and obtaining legal advice from such an attorney.


  2. There is currently no new immigration law although people have been talking about it. However, there is something going on, known as Deferred Action for Chilhood Arrivals, DACA. Consult with an immigration lawyer to see if you qualify for it.


  3. It all depends. First the law was not finalized and is not the law yet. But you should meet with an attorney to discuss your situation.
