United We Dream is a resource with information about the new deferred action policy announced by the Obama administration in June 2012. This website offers answers to frequently asked questions as well as warnings about lawyers charging a lot of money for services that may not be appropriate or necessary. According to United We Dream, “No one should be taking money to help you apply at this point because no process exists yet! It would be unethical for a lawyer to accept money to help you with something when they know none of the details and the application process is not in place.”
Please familiarize yourself with the information on this website and wait for more information to become available in August, 2012.
