Will You Qualify for the President's Program?
President Obama has announced a program to assist those who are present in the United States who have either spouses or children who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents. The President will grant those who are eligible for the program deferred action, meaning that he will promise not to start deportation proceedings against them. Those who are granted deferred action may also be granted legal authority to work in this country.
If you think you are eligible for the President’s program, call me at (571) 551-6069. We can sit down and discuss your situation.
If you make an appointment to see me, you will first sit down with my of my bilingual staff members to collect your information. Once we have collected your information, I will review it and discuss whether you are qualified for the program.
There will be a consultation fee of $200. If you are eligible for the program, that money will be credited against the legal fee for helping you apply for this program.
The legal fee will depend on how difficult your case is.
If you have all of the documents that are required to apply, such as your birth certificate, your marriage certificate, your children’s birth certificates, proof that your spouse or children are U.S. citizens or permanent residents, and proof of presence in the United States for the past five years, the legal fee will be $750.
If you do not have all of your documents, the legal fee will be $1,000.
If you have two or more convictions for misdemeanors, or other problems with your eligibility, the fee will depend on how difficult your case will be.
These fees are in addition to any filing fees required by the Government to apply for the program.
If you need your documents translated, we can translate them for you. The fees for translations are:
· $50 for birth certificates
· $75 per page for all other documents that are type-written
· $100 per page for all documents that are hand-written.
We can translate from Spanish and French.
