Last updated AUGUST 2016

The suggestions in this document are specifically about applying to renew DACA.
For answers to questions mainly about applying for DACA for the first time,

Have your initial Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and employ­ment authorization expired, or will they expire soon? Have you already submit­ted your DACA renewal application?

If you have submitted your renewal application but are concerned because your DACA and work authorization have expired or will expire before your DACA is renewed, consider following the steps described in the resource available by clicking on the PDF icon.

By following these steps, you may be able to get information about the status of your renewal application and, if appropriate, to ask U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to process your renewal more quickly.
