If you currently have DACA and want to renew it, you should renew immediately after consulting with an experienced immigration attorney or accredited representative.

DACA renewal applications are still being accepted and approved which means you may receive a new work permit valid for another two years. The main risk is that the DACA program could be changed or terminated suddenly. If your renewal application is not approved before the program is terminated, you may lose the $495 application fee.

If you have any prior or new immigration or criminal issues, do not apply to renew your DACA until you first consult with a trusted legal service provider to assess your case. Some past criminal or immigration issues could impact your renewal application now even if you were approved for DACA in the past.
