I have been a DACA recipient since 06/13/13. I have since then renewed my status accordingly. My current DACA status and Employment Authorization card expires on 03/01/19. Having said that, earlier this year, my husband and I got married. We both then filed for my green card (I-130, I-485, I-864). I have already went in for my biometrics appointment. As of July 09, 2018, my I-485 is ready to be scheduled for an interview.
Right now, I'm waiting for that interview. I checked and saw that the processing time for my office is 7.5 to 19 months.
Is it advisable to go ahead and renew my DACA?
That is no longer necessary under the circumstances you cited - assuming you were legally admitted into the country way back when (doesn't matter when) and that you will be able to ultimately "adjust" status in the USA.
