DACA was disgracefully rescinded on September 5, 2017 by the Trump Administration. However, ongoing litigation since that time means that most current (or former) DACA holders are able to continue renewing their work permits. 

  • You may renew your DACA if you previously held or currently held DACA status under the litigation.

  • Please note that USCIS may no longer send out the “renewal notice” letters they previously sent. You should renew your DACA 3-5 months before its expiration without waiting for anything from USCIS

  • We will continue to charge $300 to process DACA renewals without complications. The USCIS filing fee is $495.

  • Individuals who never held DACA are still unable to apply for the first time.

  • DACA advance parole was ended as of September 2017; it is currently not possible to apply for advance parole.

VERY IMPORTANT - if you have possible other relief available to you - through a United States citizen or lawful permanent resident spouse, another family petition, a U visa (have you ever been the victim of any violent crime?) please talk to me (or another qualified immigration attorney) as soon as possible.
