USCIS Will Begin Accepting “Expanded DACA” Applications on February 18, 2015

In response to President Obama’s November 2014 executive orders on immigration, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced that it will begin accepting applications for “Expanded DACA” on February 18, 2015.  While application forms are not yet available, interested parties may sign up for e-mail updates at the official USCIS.gov website.

You may be considered for “Expanded DACA” if you:

  • Entered the United States before the age of 16;
  • Have lived in the United States continuously since at least January 1, 2010, rather than the prior requirement of June 15, 2007;
  • Are of any age (removes the requirement to have been born since June 15, 1981); and
  • Meet all the other DACA guidelines.

Remember, you will be able to obtain free forms on the USCIS.gov website once they are available.  However, USCIS will require an application fee.

USCIS will provide updates as to the other components of President Obama’s November 2015 announcement (such as Deferred Action for Parents of U.S. Citizens and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA) and the expansion of provisional waivers of unlawful persence) within the coming weeks.
