My asylum was not granted. but I was granted withholding of removal from the court today. I also have a child who was born in the US and I have lived in the US for 9 years. Can I apply for DAPA when it is available to apply for?
No, but people who were granted WOR bit eligible for Deferred Action will be able to apply. It will be useless though as it would bring no benefit to them they do not already have.

The actions will not effect your Withholding Status. Withholding Status (which was given to you by the Court) is permanent (unless conditions change)...so, why change it something that is at the whim of a president?

The specific rules have not yet been released. I suggest you keep an eye on the USCIS website for the rules when they are set. The acual rules may be different then the political announcement from the President. Also, be careful of relying on notarios who claim to be able to fix your papers as they may make false promises and steal your money.
