Time to renew your DACA Status and Employment Authorization Card?
You may request a DACA renewal if you met 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.
Your renewal request should be filed with USCIS about 120 days (4 months) before your current period of deferred action will expire. 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.
You must file forms I-821-D and I-765 with USCIS. There is a $410 filing fee for Form I-765 and an $85 biometric services (fingerprints and photo) fee, so the total filing fee is $495.
If it’s time to renew your DACA, we can help so that your application is properly filed and filed on time. When results matter, experience counts.
