“Own the Dream” is on the Ball with Screenng Tool for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals

This is wonderfully prompt.

Own the Dream has a simple online tool up to help people figure out their eligibility for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program (this link is to the US Govt).

The tool walks users through a series of questions and answers that gives them a provisional answer as to whether they appear eligible for the program.  It also asks questions about possible criminal or other activity that might raises problems, and warns users in the summary about any areas in which they should consult with an attorney.  The summary can be printed out as a pdf for consultation with an attorney.

There is an introductory video.

In short its a wonderful tool to maximize the usage of this important US program, while minimizing the risk that people trying to take advantage of it will suffer adverse consequences.

Its a nice example of using the tools of document assembly (LawHelpInteractive) for triage/diagnosis, and hopefully will help many many folks.

If only we could be as prompt with all our access to justice initiatives.

Spread the word!

    FYI Richard, DreamerJustice.org also has a screening tool that uses an A2J interview and I believe is (or will be) integrated with the National Immigrant Justice Center’s case mgmt system.
