Information About Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals

You can apply if you:

  • came to the US before the age of 16
  • have lived in the US since January 1, 2010
  • are currently in school, graduated, or obtained a GED
  • 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.

When should you renew

You should submit your renewal request about 4 months before your current period of

DACA will expired. If you submit your request more than 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.

How to Renew

Evidence needed for DACA renewal

You do not have to summit any additional documents at the time you request unless;

  • You have new documents involving removal proceedings or criminal history that

you did not already submit to USCIS in a previously approved DACA.

USCIS may request additional documents or statements to verify information provide in

support of requests for renewal of DACA. They may contact other government agencies,

education institutions, employers or other entities in order to verify information.

Note – If USCIS unexpectedly delays your DACA renewal request, they may provide

deferred action and employment authorization for a short period of time until they finish

with process request. They may not do this if you file your request days before your current

DACA employment authorization expires.
