Facts:  D is a 32 year old native of Costa Rica who has lived in the U.S. since she was 16 years old. D currently has temporary status in the U.S. under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. D started her own business in New York, which has become quite successful. Through her business she met H, a U.S. citizen client. They fell in love, and married in August 2017. The couple just bought a house together in Ulster County and are building a life together.
