A: It depends on your situation. For example, after you turn 18, if you are married to a US citizen or permanent resident, you may be able to apply for a green card through the consulate of your home country. However, you need to speak with an immigration attorney to determine what you may be eligible for. In the meantime, make sure you keep renewing your DACA status so that you do not accrue any unlawful presence here in the United States.
