DACA Renewal Calculator Takes the Math Out of Renewing

DACA renewals began last month. Want to know when you have to file to renew your Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA) work permit? The National Immigration Law Center has a new tool that calculates when to renew for you.

The Department of Homeland Security says that you can file your renewal no more than 150 days before your permit expires. So the best time to apply is 120 to 150 days before the permit expires. The National Immigration Law Center has some important advice for you; "don't wait until the last minute! If you do, your EAD might expire and you might start accruing "unlawful presence," which can make it hard for you to adjust to permanent legal immigration status in the future." It is extremely important that you renew on time.

Here is the link to the calculator, which I am sure you will agree is a cool tool.
