After biometrics for deferred action how long is the waiting period to get news from USCIS?

Asked almost 2 years ago - North Hollywood, CA

My daugther got her biometrics taken on 10\1\12. She is a very good student, no criminal record and is a really good kid, but I'm worried because we have not heard from USCIS yet.

    Answered . You should be very proud of your daughter. It has been slightly more than 2 weeks since your daughter's biometrics. That is not very long, at all, for the USCIS to render a decision. The fact that your daughter has not yet heard from the USCIS is not a bad sign. Be ask her to be patient. Hope this helps. Wishing you well. THINK IMMIGRATION - THINK BOB BEER

    This is not legal advice. No attorney client relationship exists between us.
