DHCP L2 Attachment

I'm making an application that is responsible for the handover of the 
communications. However, it must acquire IP Address by DHCP.

If I'm already attached (Layer 2) it works fine and acquires IP Address. 
However, if I reconnect or connect to other network it doesn't start the 
DHCP Discover procedure, i.e., it doesn't acquire IP Address.

My doubt is if dhclient is able to detect L2 attachment and to start for 
its own DHCP Discover mechanisms.

Best regards,
