Should I send my DACA and permanent residency application at the same time?
Question Details: I have DACA and will expire in 10 months. I'm getting married in 3 months to my U.S. citizen girlfriend. I will be applying for permanent residency soon after that. Should I submit my daca renewal application at the same time as a the permanent residency application? I don't want to be without status after my DACA expires if the permanent residency application takes too long.
Please realize that just becuase you may be eligible for DACA does not necessarily mean you are eligible for a green card on the basis of marriage to a US citizen so before you determine that, go ahead and continue with DACA if you are still eligible. The requirements for DACA are different from the requirements for green card even if you are married to a US citizen.
