USCIS is once again accepting DACA Renewal applications. Renew your DACA today!

US Immigration Update (October 1, 2020): The U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California granted the motion for preliminary injunction temporarily halting the implementation of USCIS final fee rule in its entirety and on a nationwide basis. This means that the new fee increases have been STOPPED, at least for now. We will update this webpage with information and guidance on further developments. Please check back frequently.

What happens next?
The Government (USCIS) will likely appeal to the 9th Circuit court to get the fee increases pushed through. However, no one knows when the appeal will happen or what the result of the appeal will be.

What does this mean for you?
No one knows if or when the new fees will be made effective, but as long as the injunction is in place the USCIS cannot raise fees. Taking into consideration that fees could go up for many applications at any time, it's generally a good idea to prepare & file your Green Card or Citizenship applications sooner rather than later.

See the chart below to see the differences in the current vs new fees.

More Information

The Department of Homeland Security issued a memorandum on September 5, 2017, rescinding Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals “DACA.” USCIS will no longer accept initial DACA applications effective immediately. Recipients looking to renew can submit their renewal applications until October 5.

If you have previously held DACA status then you can apply to renew your status if your current Employment Authorization Document (EAD) will expire between the dates of September 5, 2017, and March 5, 2018. If you have never been a DACA recipient, you can no longer apply under this program.

Applicants whose DACA status has already expired or will expire after March 5, 2018, should contact an experienced immigration attorney to discuss alternate pathways to legal residence.
