You must be aware that in order for you to qualify for deferred action for DREAMers, you must not have been convicted of a felony, a significant misdemeanor, multiple misdemeanors, or otherwise pose a threat.

Beware of notario scams. Notarios, immigration consultants, notaries public, and other so-called immigration experts may use the deferred action for DREAMers program as an opportunity to take advantage of unsuspecting foreign nationals. Although these "experts" may promise to assist you in filing your application while charging expensive fees, they cannot legally represent you in the immigration process, nor can they give you legal advice. Only a licensed attorney can legally represent you.
