USCIS Announces Online Filing for DACA Renewal Forms

(December 11, 2020) Ridgewood, NJ. NPZ Law Group is dedicated to protecting the rights of individuals who are covered under the DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) program.

We are pleased to announce that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is now accepting first-time requests and renewal requests for deferred action under DACA after a federal court ordered the Trump Administration to reinstate the program.

The Backdrop

In November 2020, Judge Nicholas George Garaufis of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York found that a memo issued by Acting DHS Secretary Chad Wolf in July was invalid. The Memo suspended new applications to the DACA program and reduced renewals from two years to one. The Judge ruled that Wolf was serving in his position unlawfully and ordered the program to be reinstated.

On Dec. 7, 2020, DHS posted on its website that it is now accepting new applications, petitions for two-year renewals, and requests for permission to temporarily leave the U.S. In short, the Obama-era DACA program, that shields more than 650,000 individuals, has now been fully restored.

If you are seeking a request for consideration for deferred action under DACA or need assistance with a renewal petition, turn to NPZ Law. We are the experienced choice in U.S. and Canadian immigration law.
