I qualify for the "Deferred Action." I want to know if there is a way to file the application without a Lawyer?
Is there is a way to prepare and file the application without a lawyer? Yes (check www.uscis.gov on Wednesday when they release the forms online). Should you? Not if you can afford an attorney (even if it's just for a consultation so that you know what you're getting into). This program needs to be understood from the legal perspective before people apply for it.
It depends on your qualifications. I suggest you attend a free or low-cost public-service-type presentation in your aarea, by immigration lawyers. Check with Hispanic community organizations and newspapers, radio, etc. By attending, you may learn more information and be even better informed before deciding whether or not to try to apply on your own.
