Not sure what to do. But renewing my daca is my only option. If you could please keep us updated with your case I will highly appreciated. I am preparing my renew packet by my self and I just got the last letter of recommendation from a proffesor today. I am mailing it this Week. Ill will keep you guys updated.
  7. Last week
  8. Write on here your stories & outcomes if you were arrest for a DUI or anything before applying for DACA & if you got accept after or vice versa. Just any stories to help out some worry DACA members.
  9. You need to pay the the $465 I don't know if it went up. Send copies of your original 821D and fill out your 765 make sure to fill out replacement on top
  10. Yes a DWI will disqualify you. As I was disqualify the first time. The second time I did qualify because I had my DUI expunged.
  11. I didn't hire an immigration lawyer this time. I sent the copies of my old paper with my lawyers signature (once again it was just copies) so not her actual signature. Now I think that worked because I did receive a receipt for biometrics. It's been 90 days it's still pending. ^^^^^ REPLACEMENT WORK PERMIT. FOR THE ACTAUL DACA PACKAGE The first time I sent all the paper work by myself with no expunged DUI it got rejected. The second time I expunged my DUI payed a lawyer got accepted.
  12. Olivia B give us your status on your DACA I'm sorry for replying late. Lori. I'm really happy you didn't get deported because a DUI or anything at the moment equals deportation. Please keep us updated with your DACA to see if you got approved,I hope you do. I'm scare for myself & else. This is the only country I know... I'm still waiting for my Work Permit since the post office lost it. I had to pay again & take another biometrics so now it's a waiting game again. I think if they do send me one then my expunge DUI is not going to be a problem for renewal I hope.
  13. Hi Vik Did you hire an immigration lawyer for them to process your daca application? Also did you send a personal statement letter. Thank you.
  14. Earlier
  15. Hi Vik! I All I can say is that you are very lucky. I am happy for you. I am very worry right now because I got a DUI Dicember 2014 and my Daca expired June 2015. I went to do all the process of school and payments and I finally got it expounded in Dicember 2016 before the 3 year probation. I recently Renew the application, they received it on January 3 2017 and I received a letter for the BIometrics on Feb. 1 2017. Now that Trump came out with new executive orders I am truly scare if this will influence the outcome for Daca and get deported. I am about to apply to Nursing schools and I sent bunch of letter recomendations I Am praying that this would help to see that it was just a mistake. Wish me luck.
  16. Ok thanks I will look into the instructions for the W8-BEN Form but I also plan on opening a brokerage account. I want to to start trading in the stock market, so I am currently taking some momentum trading courses. I am going to talk to my immigration lawyer about question 3 maybe he will know be able to answer our question. Ad BTW my bank is golden 1 Credit union.
  17. What Bank do use? BTW: You don't need to fill a W8-Ben for a Regular/Savings account. It's clearly noted in the W8 form instructions. You only need that if you plan to open a brokerage account, which is exactly what I am doing. I am also stuck on question 3. I talked to my tax lady but She had no clue. My next option is talking to a CPA. From what understand the IRS won't even give advice on W-8 forms in general. If you find anything out let me know. I let you know anything I find.
  18. by the way you need to pay $465 as you did the first time.
  19. Of course. I have not yet received my replacement card. I was told I need to wait 30 days. The paper you need to send is simple Form I-765 make sure to check renewal on top. Form I-765 Worksheet. I had copies with my lawyers signature on the bottom. So I just sent those. If I didn't have copies with her signature I would of signed them and checked that I prepared them.
  20. Hi FutureofUS Sorry to hear your situation, is very similar to mine. I was granted DACA in 2013 and got convicted of a Misdemeanor DUI in January 2015 and i couldn't renew. I am graduating with my Bachelors degree in may. Also i just got my DUI expunge two weeks ago, i hire an attorney for the process because i still had another year on probation from the dui in jan 2015 and he was able to get my probation terminated and the expungement granted. I am getting ready to file my renewal for DACA. Today i had a appointment with a immigration lawyer to review my case. She stated that she had other cases similar to my case and she was able to get them approved. I know that every case is on a case by case, i am hoping to get approved ill keep you updated on my process and hopefully i don't get denied.
  21. HI Vik, I apologize for my late reply. Did you get your Employment card replace? Also i just got my DUI expungement approved last week, i hire an attorney to process it because i was still under probation and had a year left. My attorney was able to file the motion for early termination of my probation due to my misdemeanor DUI that i received two years ago. I went to talk to an immigration attorney about reapplying for DACA due that my employment card expire 2 years ago and was unable to renew due to my DUI. The attorney stated that she just had one case similar to mine and she was able to get it approved. The attorney fees are expensive and i cant not afford them at the moment due that my wife is the only one working at the moment and i am a full time student. I am about to graduate with my Bachelors Degree in Business, and i need my Employment card renew. I feel that i can prepare the application my self and submit it. If you could give me any advice on what documents i need to send in or letters of recommendation, etc... i will highly appreciated Thank you.
  22. Do you have an update. I have a friend that is going through the same situation.
  23. Did you get this notice after your biometrics or before your biometrics appointment?
  24. Also I have a biometrics appointment but my question is does this mean my renewal application was approved?
  25. My bank account is currently restricted which means that I cant deposit any cash. My banker tells me I need to fill the W-8BEN tax form so that my account may be fully accessible. I havent filled it out because in question 3 it asks for my permanent resident address which according to the form its the address where I would live in if I lived in my country of origin. I have never lived in my country of origin since I was 5 so how could this be considered my permanent address. If I fill this out as the IRS asks will it affect my daca renewal or later on in my life lets say I have the prerequisites to become a resident will this also affect that process? Any help on this issue would be greatly appreciated.
  26. I just got the approval!!! omg... glory to GOD
