  1. Are you aware of the fact that states expatriation law is based on the Nationality Act, probably not! Make sure you do not violate this law in any ways, otherwise it is a crime. It is imperative for you to be conscious while hiring a legal DACA immigration Attorney. Thus, you are able to get proper guidance related to such issues via lawyers.
