Do You Need to Hire an Attorney to File a Deferred Action Petition?

President Obama's executive order on deferred action is now a reality. Effective August 15, 2012, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) began accepting applications for deferred action and work permit requests from undocumented young immigrants.

Are you one of the undocumented young immigrants? If so, you are probably wondering if you should file a petition yourself or hire an attorney. You are probably thinking that attorneys are expensive and you are wondering how difficult could it be to file the petition without a lawyer.  But, before you make a decision consider what the stakes are if you make a mistake. Filing for deferred action is much more than answering a few easy questions on a form. The smallest error could be devastating. Read the article I posted on the website of Tucker & Ludin at
