On December 4, 2020, a Federal Judge required the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to begin accepting new applications for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), as well as remedying the recent one-year grants of DACA. Effective December 7, 2020, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is:
• Accepting first-time applications for consideration of DACA;
• Accepting DACA renewal requests based on the terms of the DACA policy in effect prior to September 5, 2017;
• Accepting applications for advance parole documents based on the terms of the DACA policy prior to September 5, 2017; and
• Extending one-year grants of deferred action and employment authorization under DACA to two years.
For more information to see if you are eligible to apply for DACA, see Deferred Action, or contact our office for a consultation, 610-436-7555.
