USCIS announced today the process and forms for renewing DACA!
Who can renew their DACA?
You may request a renewal if you continue to meet the initial DACA guidelines and you:
- Did not depart the United States on or after Aug. 15, 2012, without advance parole;
- Have continuously resided in the United States since you submitted your most recent DACA request that was approved; and
- Have not been convicted of a felony, a significant misdemeanor, or three or more misdemeanors, and do not otherwise pose a threat to national security or public safety.
When should you renew your DACA?
You should submit your renewal request about 120 days (4 months) before your current period of deferred action will expire. NOTE- If you submit your request more than 150 days (5 months) before your current period expires, USCIS may reject it and return it to you with instructions to resubmit it closer to the expiration date.
NOTE- The total cost of renewing is $465! Start saving if need be.
For further details about HOW to renew your DACA, additional documents to submit with your renewal application, and much more, please visit the official USCIS website: “Renew your DACA”
