DACA- What you need to know!

En Español

In multiple languages available below.

ATTENTION DACA recipients:

  1. USCIS has resumed accepting requests to renew your DACA status.
  2. Individuals who were previously granted deferred action under DACA may request renewal by filing forms:
    1. Form I-821D:
    2. Form I-765:
    3. Form I-765 Worksheet:
  3. Pay appropriate $495 fee or approved fee exemption request & file your DACA renewal at a USCIS designated location.
  4. USCIS is not accepting requests from individuals who have never before been granted deferred action under DACA.
  5. USCIS will not accept or approve advance parole requests from DACA recipients.
  6. This could be a short window to file DACA renewals given that the Trump administration is likely to appeal the court ruling that forced them to reopen renewals in the first place. TAKE ACTION NOW!
  7. Please consult a lawyer if you have any questions on any specific case.
  8. Finally, this underscores the need for Congress to pass a permanent solution to protect Dreamers. We need a clean !
