Fortunately, USCIS is again accepting requests from individuals who have never before been granted deferred action under DACA as well as renewals and advanced parole based on DACA.
You may request or renewal DACA if you met the initial 2012 DACA guidelines and you:
- Did not depart the United States on or after Aug. 15, 2012, without advance parole;
- Have continuously resided in the United States since you submitted your most recent DACA request that was approved;
- Have not been convicted of a felony, a significant misdemeanor, or three or more other misdemeanors; and
- Do not otherwise pose a threat to national security or public safety.
