Helpful General Renew Guidelines And A Question About Renewing I-765

Recommended Posts

Hello! I haven't been here in awhile.. Been busy since approval! 

Now it is time for those of you who got approved early to RENEW! 

120 days before your last approval expires. Mine expires on 12/12/2014 so I'm starting today to fill out the forms. 


Luckily, we are exempted from filling out all of those tedious portions and proof that we had to submit for initial review!! Hallelujah!! As some of you already know, the renewal form/directions are different (YAY we don't have to fill a bunch of sections :D)


It is such a rip off though, I've got to say that we have to pay that darned $465 dollars... AGAIN. 


Those of you who are starting the renewal process, I found this link helpful, to just double check that you are doing things right on the I821D form:




I have a question about Item 15 on I-765 (This is a question about RENEWAL of the work permit)

15. Current Immigration Status (visitor, student, etc)



Do I put 'Approved for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals' 


or 'unlawful status' or 'none' as before (when I first applied for it I had put 'none')??? 



Thanks for reading and I hope you guys find my link helpful! <3

Daca does not give any legal status

Yes I realize that but I specifically asked if I should put "None" or "Unlawful Status" or "Approved for DACA" 

(if you hadn't noticed.. all of those choices express and acknowledge the fact that I'm not given a legal status....... that obviously wasn't the question  :() oh man oh man.

Oh yea, even renewals.. Don't forget to add along with your I-765 form and I-765 WS:

a copy of your I-94 if you have any

a copy of your approved I-765 from last time (I also included a copy of my EAD card just in case as well)

and two passport photos (white background)
