DACA Renewal Services

Image: Catholic News Service photo by Joshua LottOn Sept. 5, 2017, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that the Trump administration is rescinding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, and will begin phasing it out. Because of this phasing out process, no new initial DACA applications will be accepted and no requests for advanced parole filed under the DACA program will be granted. Although no new initial DACA applications will be accepted, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will be accepting DACA renewals for individuals whose work permits expire on or before March 5, 2018. The DACA renewal application must be received by Oct. 5, 2017.

Currently, the Immigration Legal Services office (213 Sheldon Blvd SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49503) is providing DACA renewal services only on Tuesday mornings each week beginning at 8:45 a.m. No appointment is required, but we do have limitations on household income. If you would like our help, please bring the following items with you on the next Tuesday morning:

  • Proof of income at or below 200% of the poverty guidelines, such as 2016 Income Tax Returns and/or current check stubs for everyone in the household
  • $40 for the consultation (cash or money order)
  • $150 for representation on the DACA renewal (cash or money order)
  • Money Order for $495.00 for the government fee
  • Passport (if any)
  • If you did not complete your initial DACA application in our office, a copy of your initial DACA application, if available
  • Two (2) passport-type photos
  • Any advance parole document and your dates of travel
  • Police report(s) and certified court documents (if any since previous application)
  • A list of previous address if have moved since your initial application.
  • If you have ever had a police encounter, even one that has already been disclosed, you should bring two letters of recommendation from trusted and respected adults who know you well. Although this is not a strict requirement, it is highly recommended in today’s atmosphere.

If you have any additional questions, please call our office, 616-551-4746.
