How old do I have to be to apply for DACA?


Generally you must be at least 15 years of age at the time you apply. The exception to this rule is if:

  • You are in removal proceedings; or
  • You have a final order of removal; or
  • You have an order of voluntary departure.

If any of these conditions apply to you, it is best to consult with an experienced immigration attorney before filing any USCIS immigration form.
