How do I renew my deferred action status? My status expires in September of 2014, but I wanna make sure to do it in time.

Fort Worth, TX |

I've had deferred action status for over a year now and thankfully I have a really good job. My employer wants to make sure I am processing my employment authorization permit in a timely fashion. Please advise on the renewal process with time specifications. Also, how many times can I renew my deferred action status?

  1. No one knows. President Obama will probably make a statement about this sometime in 2014.
