In 2004 my I-485 application was denied because the principle applicant's, (my father's), I-485 was denied. At the time i was under 18 years of age and now I'm 21 years old. I have my Social and an expired Work Permit that i can't renew. When my case was denied we immediately filled a Motion to Reopen or Reconsider to the adverse decision. The motion was denied. Can i apply for " Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals"? I know it would be better to fix the I- 485 situation but aim not sure if i can do anything. My father's I-485 was rejected because he was "inadmissible, such inadmissibility was the result of his unlawful presence". But the thing is that my father didn't abandon his application because he left with specific permission of the government through the Authorization for ParoleThe Governement specifically says on the Authorization for Parole that the petitioner is allowed to leave the country and is permitted to " resume [his] application for adjustment of status upon [his] return to the United States". My father was entitled to rely on this statement on the Authorization to leave the country to attend to a family emergency without running the risk that his application for adjustment of status would be considered abandoned or denied.
