  1. Eddy, I understand how you feel. From my experience, one of the lawyers I spoke with stated there is possibility to be renewing while your charges are pending. However if you send your renewal in now there's not guarantee it will be reviewed any time soon and if you get charge with the dui while your application is in review they can deny you. If your DACA has expired for longer than 6 months you have to renew as if it is an initial request. I advise you to consult with a experience lawyer or wait to see the outcome of your case. In my case I got charged with a misdemeanor dui. Did everything asked by the court (paid fees and dui classes) waited 2 years of my 3 year probation and request an early probation termination which was granted and than file for my expungement.
  2. Congrats Vic, I just got my notification that my Daca was approved and my work permit was order and in processed. I waited a full year to get a response but well worth it. Thank you everyone for the support and sharing your experiences.
  3. Hi everyone, I got my RFE and they are asking for evidence of my presence from 2007 to 2012. They didn't mention anything related to my expunge dui. I did send certified copies of my dui arrest and expungement with my renewal application back in March 2017. Ill keep you guys posted.
  4. Hi Vic, Lori and Alby I just got notification of RFE today at 630 am. Via email. Not sure what else they need. I send alot of information in my package. Please let us know what they ask in the letter, I think Vic will recive his first. Ill will post as soon as I get mine in the mail.
  5. Hi, Has any one hear back from USCIS yet? I am still waiting since 3/12/17.
  6. Alby, Congrats on your approval. How long ago did you receive the similar letter stating that your case was on hold for security check. Also you said you contacted your congresswoman, how did you do that? I am very stressed out that my case is on hold. I live in California and had daca when it first came out. But then I got a dui and waited to reapply until my xpungement was complete. Is your case similar? I sent in my renewal in March this year.
  7. Hi everyone After calling USCIS 1800 number and open a request to check the status of my application i received a letter stating the following. The status of this service request is:We have placed your case on a processing hold because the required security checks remain pending. Until we receive the results of these security checks, we cannot move forward on your case. We require the results of security checks before we make a decision on any pending case.We cannot predict when we will receive the results of these security checks. Please be assured that we will make every effort to make a decision in your case as soon as the security checks are complete.We hope this information is helpful to you I sent my application back in the beginning of march 2017. Has anyone heard of this before?

  13. Hi everyone I just wanted to know if any of you have received an answer from uscis. I sent my renewal with a expunged DUI back in February and did my biometrics in march. I am still waiting and hoping for the best outcome.
  14. Hi Vik Glad to hear everything turned out OK
  15. Hi guys I received my biometrics appointment in the mail is in two weeks. After that is going to be a long waiting process to hear back from USCIS. I am hoping for the best for everyone. Stay focus and positive and more inportant don't lose hope. Ill keep you guys updated on my case.
  16. Hey Vik iam positive that you would get your Employment card Replace because you were granted Deffered Action already. Also I know that in order to get your employment card you would need to be granted DACA first and than they process your Employment card. In your case you already been approved for DACA and i dont think of a reason for USCIS not process your card. You mention before that your friend was granted DACA with a expunge dui on his record and he was on the process of renewal how is that going for him? Has he send his renewal?
  17. Hi Jessica23, I exactly know how you feel about getting a DUI. Also if my case gets rejected i am scare that i can get deported. But at the end of the day my arrest record is already on their database so basically ICE have access to that info at any time they want. My only option is to renew in hopes they can grant me DACA once again. Where you convicted of a misdemeanor DUI? You might want to look up attorneys in your area that specialize in expungements. The first thing is to pay all fines and complete everything that courts asked you to do fines/dui classes and probation. You mention that you are under probation and currently paying your fines. You can continue paying your fines until your probation is over by next year. Before you can apply for your expungement all fines need to be paid in full. Vik mention in a early post that he expunge his own record, but he already had paid all his fines, dui classes and had completed his probation. Than he was able to apply for his expungement. If you want to expunge your record right now you would need to pay your fines first. Than file the motion for an early termination for probation and once the judge approves it. You can file for your expungement. This is the option i did but i had to hire an attorney to this for me.
  18. Your attorney say not to apply for your early probation termination or DACA? Yes I was arrested and booked to my county jail and release the same night. The next day I contacted an attorney to fight my DUI case. I still got convicted of misdamenor DUI. I had to do community service hours and didn't have to do the classes just pay the fine. With applying for my DACA renewal. I contacted a immigration attorney and she looked at my DUI case and stated that I must expunge it before I can reapply for DACA. She also mention about a similar case to mine from another client and stated he was approved with a expunge dui in his record.
  19. Jessica23 My dui attorney advice me first to pay all fines, and complete the dui classes and everything asked by the court. Than to wait at least 2 years of the 3 years of my probation. He stated that I would have a better chance the judge to grand my early trrmination of probation after completing 2 years and have nothing else in my record. When he presented my case he explain to the judge why I need my probation to be terminated. My attorney explain that i was graduating from my local university and need it for job related purposes.
  20. Hi Yazz33 Thx for the info. My fingerprint appointment has been schedule I am waiting for the official notice in the mail. Also I had a year left on probation till January 2018 but I talked to my lawyer that handle my DUI case and he was able to to file a motion for early termination on my probation and the judge approve it on December 5th 2016. After that he file for my expungement and that was approved in Jan 17 2017. My DUI happened in CA.
  21. HI ViK I did had DACA when it first came out but than got a DUI and waited for the expungement. I just send my renewal including my expungement, and received the email that it was accepted by USCIS. I have not been granted DACA yet. My application is just been routed to Nebraska facility for processing i am waiting for the fingerprinting appointment. But i do hope i can be granted DACA once again.
  22. Yazz33 Sorry to hear your case was rejected. What was the time frame from when you mail your renewal and it was denied. They just received my renewal with my expunge DUI.
  23. Hi guys i just received a email from USCIS. I send my renewal with my expunge DUI and was delivered 3/6/17 at the Phoenix Facility . On the email it states " Your case has been accepted and routed to the USCIS Nebraska Service Center for processing. Within 7-10 days by standard mail you will receive your official Receipt Notice (Form I-797) with your Receipt Number IOEXXXXXXXX. I read info online that the Nebraska center takes longer for processing DACA Renewals. Also does any of your cases have been rerouted? Thanks guys.
  24. Hi GuessLori I am in the same situation I got a dui in 2014 and my expungement was granted last month. I am about to graduate with my bachelors in december and my work permit expired in 2015.
