This is my first offense , I got got tickets but I been on time with talking care of this.
You need to retain an experienced attorney and try to have your charges dismissed if possible. If not then USCIS can , at their discretion, not extend the DACA. Good luck to you.
It will depend on whether DUI falls under "felony" in the state of California. I urge you to speak with a criminal defense attorney or traffic defense attorney to see whether you can have the charges reduced. Otherwise the USCIS may deny renewal under DACA.
It will depend on the disposition of your DUI charge. If the DUI was disposed of in the right way, you should still be eligible. A straight guilty plea will almost certainly disqualify you from DACA protection.
I recommend that you gather all the DUI case documents and consult an immigration attorney. If the DUI is still pending, the immigration attorney can give you guidance on how to safely resolve the DUI. I hope this helps.
This offense could cause a problem for your DACA renewal. You should work with both a criminal defense attorney and an immigration attorney to try to avoid a conviction, and/or perhaps plead to a lesser charge. Your criminal defense attorney and your immigration attorney should communicate, in order to best help you to avoid potential immigration problems.
This communication does not establish and attorney-client relationship with the Law Office of Michael Carlin PLLC or any individual member of the office. Confidential information should not be sent through this form.
Your DACA renewal could be problematic. Schedule consultations with bot DUI attorneys and immigration attorneys unless you can find a local one that handles both practice areas. Good luck to you. Hope this helps?
If you are convicted of DUI, you will become ineligible for DACA and your reneal will be declined. A DUI is considered a significant misdemeanors, which will disqualify you from renewal.
Get an attorney, and try to get it reduced at least to a wet.

If you have a DUI conviction, you cannot get the renewal. With an experienced criminal defense attorney, you should try to avoid getting the DUI conviction. What was your Blood Alcohol Content? Why did the police approach you? I need more facts.

Your DACA renewal will be denied. Even if your charge is reduced to a wet and reckless, there is a strong chance it will be denied and you will need to explain it. You need a non alcohol related reckless driving otherwise known as a "dry" or a dismissal. You will still need to explain the arrest when it comes time for a renewal if you get a dry or dismissal so you will need an attorney.
