DACA Renewal Delays



In August of 2016, USCIS announced that some requests to renew Deferred Action for Childhood Consideration (DACA) filed between February 14, 2016 and June 22, 2016 were delayed. If you already submitted your DACA renewal and it has been pending for 105 days or more without approval and it will expire within two weeks; or if you have not received a biometrics notice and your DACA expires within 30 days, consider filling out this form. The Immigration Law Resource Center (ILRC) is helping to elevate DACA renewal cases to USCIS.

Only the following cases may be elevated through this form:

1. You must have already submitted a request through USCIS’s online portal: https://my.uscis.gov/account/needhelp or https://my.uscis.gov/account/inbox; AND

2. You must have already submitted a request through USCIS’s 1-800 Customer Service Number: 1-800-375-5283. See this advisory for full instructions: https://goo.gl/PTneQp; AND

3. You are at over 105 days of processing time (more than 105 days since USCIS confirmed receipt of the application) AND your DACA expires in less than two weeks; OR

4. Your biometrics notice has not been issued and your DACA expires in a month or less.

Note: You can calculate how long your case has been pending by subtracting today’s date from the date of receipt by USCIS.
