Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) – Form I-821D
According to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the purpose of Form I-821D is to defer the removal of an individual from the United States who came here before reaching his or her 16th birthday. Also, for those who were under 31 years old as of June 15, 2012, or those who resided in the U.S since June 15, 2007, until now.
If you’re a first-time DACA applicant, your application will not be accepted. U.S. Department of Homeland Security only allows renewal applications at this time.
Here are the steps to Renewing your DACA:
- Make sure you have a copy of your initial application for DACA.
