No DACA renewal filings accepted yet as of January 9, 2018 California District Court decision

  January 11, 2018 | Immigration News & Announcements - Butvilas & Associates PC

The California court’s decision directs DHS to post “reasonable public notice that it will resume receiving DACA renewal applications” and to specify the process by which it will accept renewal  applications. As of January 10, 2018, USCIS had not yet released any public guidance on the court’s decision, although it has noted on at least two different USCIS webpages that “more information is forthcoming.” Applicants should consider waiting to file renewal DACA applications until USCIS has released public guidance on the process. Given that 1) the court directed USCIS to specify and publicize its renewal process, and 2) the fact that the USCIS lockboxes and service centers will be relying on guidance from USCIS Headquarters to process applications it receives, submitting a renewal application before guidance is released may cause confusion and ultimately lead to a delay in processing.
