Green Card Success: From DACA to Permanent Residency

We are thrilled to share an inspiring success story from the Barrera Legal Group. One of our clients, who lived without legal status as a child and later obtained DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), has now achieved a significant milestone: becoming a legal permanent resident through marriage.

This journey was filled with challenges and uncertainties. Our client navigated the complexities of the U.S. immigration system, starting from living in the shadows to obtaining DACA, which provided temporary relief and work authorization. Despite the uncertainties surrounding DACA's future, our client remained determined to secure a more permanent solution.

The turning point came when our client married a U.S. citizen. This opened the path to apply for a Green Card, allowing them to transition from DACA status to lawful permanent residency. The application process involved rigorous documentation, biometrics, and an interview with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). With our experienced team guiding every step, we ensured all requirements were meticulously met.

Today, we celebrate this significant achievement. Our client’s approval notice from USCIS marks the beginning of a new chapter, free from the fears and limitations of living without status. This journey exemplifies the possibilities that arise from perseverance and proper legal guidance.
