when deportation order is definite final

Undefined
My son-in law entered the country illegal and he detained and given a court order but he never show up in court. This happened more than 12 yrs ago he went to talk to a lawyer and the layer told him that he had to check if his order was final or irreversible. He has been married to my daughter and they have 2 children the three of them were borned in USA. No criminal record did not leave the country since he came. Thanks for the information

Answer: 
Hi Olgaor, your son-in-law appears to be eligible for DAPA. Under the DAPA guidelines undocumented immigrants who arrived in the U.S. before 01/01/2010 and who were the parent of a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident child on 11/20/2014 are eligible to apply. Of course the DAPA guidelines are temporarily on hold because of a decision by a Texas judge. Hopefully the hold will be lifted soon. Since your son-in-law unlawfully reentered after deportation it's probably a good idea for him to have his case reviewed by a licensed attorney before he applies for DAPA or any other immigration benefit.
