If you are in the United States without status and have no ability to apply for a green card at the moment, you may still be eligible for deferred action. Deferred Action is a form of discretionary relief provided by immigration. Immigration will review your application to determine if you are a high enforcement priority, such as someone who recently entered the United States or committed serious criminal offenses. Immigration will also look for specific sympathetic factors. Generally, these sympathetic factors require a medical or psychological condition of you or a family member.
If deferred action is granted, it is usually approved for two years, and you can apply to renew for further two year periods. A grant of deferred action also makes you eligible for Employment Authorization. Deferred Action provides you with peace of mind at a time that the medical condition of you or a family member is requiring you or a family member to drive to doctor's appointments or other treatments. If you or someone in your family has a medical condition, you may be eligible to apply for deferred action.
