Application Forms for DAPA and expanded DACA...

The applications and forms for DAPA (Deferred Action for Parental Accountability) and expanded DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), the executive actions announced by President Obama last fall, will be available in February or March of 2015. However, now is the time to prepare! If you believe you might qualify - or you simply want to learn more about your immigration case - it's a good time to begin requesting your immigration file. Schedule a free consultation with our office to request a copy of your immigration file from the government: (617) 531-0135. Requests can take a few months so it's a good idea to get started now.

Celebration is in order!

It's a great day at Masferrer & Associates: two "green cards" (one with a complicated waiver) approved for two wonderful couples. One, a young couple beginning their lives together. The other, a couple who has been together for decades, and can now enjoy their family and friends with safety and security. It is truly an honor to help families live happy and healthy lives together in the United States!

Client obtains relief through VAWA

We are thrilled to announce that after three years of fighting for our client, two requests for more evidence, and an appeal to the Administrative Appeals Office, our deserving client has been granted status under VAWA! Obtaining relief through VAWA, a law granting relief to immigrants who have suffered domestic violence and abuse, will allow our client to obtain her "green card" and finally find security and stability in the United States. At Masferrer & Associates, we never stop fighting for our clients, no matter how long it takes.
