Sworn Affidavits for Deferred Action

Phoenix, AZ |

Who can write a sworn affidavit?

Does the person who writes the affidavit have to have a permanent legal status in the US?

Attorney Answers 3

  1. There is no requirement that the Affiant has legal immigration status.

  2. There is no requirement for a sworn affidavit. Documentary evidence can prove most of the items indicated and we are doing a Declaration from the Petitioner to show no lawful status at the time of filing.
