We have witnessed and seen many people come into our law firm looking for a solution to their problem or to fix their situation.

Here at Alcock and Associates we have always had a collective, corporate mission to help people in the community and the community itself with accurate, timely, and experienced information regarding their cases.

We have a team of very dedicated, passionate, and experienced attorneys who are here to work for you and make sure you are in the best hands.


For an individual to be eligible for DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), they must have arrived in the United States before the age of 16 and be under the age of 31, and not have immigration status on June 15, 2012.

In addition to this, for an individual to be eligible for DACA, they must have arrived in the United States prior to June 2007 and have stayed continuously since June 2007, without any additional entry or departure from the United States.

The applicant must also prove and prove that they were in the United States on June 15, 2012.


The following are the requirements and a history of DACA. Please note that at this time the government does NOT accept initial applications.


For an applicant to be eligible for DACA, they must be, currently enrolled in school, have graduated, or received a certificate to complete high school, have earned their general education development certificate (which is an acronym for GED), or be a veteran with an honorable discharge from the Coast Guard or the United States Armed Forces.

A person must be at least fifteen years old to apply for DACA. Documentation must be submitted to verify the above requirements.

A person will not be eligible to apply for DACA if he or she has been convicted of a felony, a significant misdemeanor, or three or more misdemeanors, or if he or she is a threat to national security or public safety.

For DACA purposes, a significant misdemeanor is a misdemeanor for which the maximum authorized term of imprisonment is one year or less but greater than five days and which meets the following criteria:

  • Despite the sentence imposed, it is an offense of domestic violence
  • Sexual abuse or exploitation; theft; illegal possession and use of a firearm; traffic distribution; or, driving under the influence
  • If it is not an offense listed above, it would be one for which the individual was sentenced to jail time for more than 90 days. The sentence must involve time to be served and therefore does not include a suspended sentence.

Very happy for having obtained my residency and for the patience they had handling my case. I went to my interview outside of the United States and I came back well, being a resident. When I went to my interview, they gave me everything I needed. The service was the best and with a very good price for the service. I recommend this law firm a lot, especially my attorney Lisa Elkin, excellent work!
