NILC Updates FAQ on DACA Renewal Process

NILC Updates FAQ on DACA Renewal Process

NILC, Jan. 2014: "U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has released a draft application and instructions for renewing Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).  The following answers to frequently asked questions regarding the DACA renewal process are intended primarily for legal service providers and organizers.  The immigrant youth–led organization United We Dream (UWD) has created a fact sheet for people who currently have DACA titled “The DACA Renewal Process: The Facts So Far,” which is available from UWD’s website.

The information in this FAQ is based on what we know about the renewal process so far, which in turn is based on the new DACA application instructions that USCIS has proposed.  The answers presented here may change once USCIS has finalized the process.

This document is a work in progress and will be updated as USCIS releases more details about the deferred action process.  Sign up for updates at https://org.salsalabs.com/o/371/signup_page/daca-dream.  NOTE: This FAQ contains general information and is not legal advice.  Every person’s case is different.  Do not take advice from a notary public or an immigration consultant.  People who have DACA or want to apply for it are advised to consult with a qualified immigration lawyer or an accredited representative for advice about their case."
