DACA Renewals

February 13, 2018

DACA Update:

Following a Federal Court order on January 9, 2018, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) resumed accepting applications for renewing DACA under certain guidelines.  These guidelines were listed on the USCIS website on January 13, 2018.  If you meet the following criteria, we recommend that you contact an attorney as soon as possible to discuss your case.

  • If you previously received DACA and your DACA expired on or after September 5, 2016: you may be able to file a renewal request
  • If your DACA expired or was terminated before September 5, 2016, you may be able to file a renewal request, but you must fill out the application and submit evidence as though you were applying for the first time
  • USCIS is not accepting requests from individuals who have never before been granted DACA.  USCIS will not accept or approve advance parole requests from DACA recipients.
