I guess at that time I just wasn’t brave enough. Then I had my son and DACA came, by this time I definitely did not want to risk it and get 10 yr ban. I never applied for advanced parole because I never had a reason n I was a bit scared too.
Well you know, the son coming could help with the hardship claim. If this was a more friendly administration, it would be worth the risk.
43 year old dreamer, aged out of original DACA and didn't have a chance to apply for extended DACA after Republicans killed it on the vine. Have family petition that is now officially current but with past skeletons, is risky to move forward with AOS. Hoping for Dream Act to pass, or a better political climate.
