Is DACA the same as a getting a green card?
Yes, it is possible for DACA recipients to apply for a green card if they meet the lawful entry requirement. If you've entered the U.S. lawfully with Advance Parole or if you first entered with a valid visa, you may meet the green card eligibility requirement. The most common green card types are family-based, employment-based, and humanitarian.
Can you apply for green card with DACA?
If you are a DACA recipient and received your DACA status before your 18th birthday, it may be possible to petition for a green card through the I-130 process if you have a qualifying relative (spouse, parent, or sibling) who is a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident.
Can I expedite my DACA?
This means, you cannot apply for expedited processing if you filed Form I-129 or Form I-140. You can, however, request expedited processing for cases like Family Creen Cards, DACA Renewals, and Citizenship by Naturalization. USCIS provides processing time estimates for all application types that they handle.
Can DACA apply for the Real ID?
Yes, DACA recipients are eligible to receive a REAL ID DL/ID card if their legal presence documents are current. The REAL ID DL/ID card will expire on the same date as their U.S. legal presence document. When it is time to renew, DMV will send a renewal notice to the address on file requesting an updated DHS extension information/document.
