With DACA and DAPA approaching, it is vital to get prepared and YWCA Tulsa can help! Here are some tips to get ready:

1. Contact YWCA Tulsa, or another trusted source for legal help with immigration. Visit http://www.immigrationlawhelp.org/ for service providers in your area.

2. Get your documents (birth and marriage certificates) translated and gather residency and other evidence now. 

3. Be aware of notario fraud. Do NOT take advice from a notary public or an immigration consultant. Contact ONLY a qualified immigration lawyer or an accredited representative for legal advice. Visit www.stopnotariofraud.org for more information on notario fraud.
