DACA – FILING PROCESS
Since filing our first Deferred Action for Child Arrivals (DACA) case on August 16, 2012, we have noticed that the process is taking a path similar to the filing of nearly all other USCIS filings. Upon filing the I-821D and I-765, the receipt notices are arriving in the mail between 7-10 business days from the date of filing. Fingerprint (Biometric) appointments are being scheduled approximately a month after being received. And then, the wait. As of the writing of this blog, all of our DACA requests remain pending. This is definitely not alarming. In fact, it is quite typical. We have no timetable or expectation for a decision. What we do know is that all of our DACA requests were fully documented and approvable when filed. We provided a plethora of evidence to prove that our requestors have been continuously and physically present in the United States since at least June 15, 2007 to the present, that they are persons of strong character, and meet the age requirements. It is now just a matter of time.
