I have a problem and maybe you can help me. I’m 25 years old and have a Degree in Mechanical Engineer and I’m pursuing a Master Degree in the same field. I want to apply to for the Deferred Action but if I understand correctly a significant misdemeanor may not let me. Four years ago I was arrested for driving under the influence. I already paid all of the fees (DMV & City fines) and took the DUI classes. I want to apply but I don’t want to waste $500. So my question is, if they find out that I don’t qualify would I get my money back? The law is clear that I won’t qualify but maybe they can overlook my DUI?? Is there any way I will get approved?
Thank you for your help
I been stressing out about this Deferred Action policy. I heard and read about others providing so much evidence about them being here since 2007. My concern is that since graduating in 2007, I worked for two years with my real name. After that, I worked with another name (which is my middle and second last name). Now ever since that, my job provided a debit card to pay, in which I never bothered to start a bank account. Now with this new discretion, I don’t feel that I have enough evidence and it makes me worry if I’m not going to be able to get anything. I really hope that what I have could be enough evidence, because I really want to go to school, and get out of my tough situation with a dysfunctional family. What I have are medical bills for a couple of months in 2009 and 2010 and some acceptance letters from college. Pay stubs from 2008 and taxes from 2007. 2011 and 2012 a rental lease, and some receipts I signed for this year for rent.
Thanks for all the hard work you and everybody else do,
