Malden, MA asked in Immigration Law for Massachusetts

Q: My daca renewal is delayed... what can I do?

I filed for my DACA renewal in May 2020, a little bit more than 150 days before my current EAD expires. My EAD expires in October 2020. I have only received notice of action I-797C, and not form I-797 that would say I was approved. Is there an automatic extension given to Daca recipients due to the covid-19 delays just in case my new card doesn’t arrive before my current one expires?

A: If your new card does not arrive in time call the 1 800 number and make an info pass appointment at your local USCIS. You may be eligible to receive a stamp in your passport indicating an extension.
