I already applied for deferred action and paid everything, the thing is I'm scared to get denied!?

Asked over 1 year ago - Mission, TX

I'm scared because I used a fake social with my name and address. Will that affect me? If I get denied will I get my money back? It was a sacrifice to pay 465 and 400 more for lawyer!

    Answered . It is too soon to know how applications will be adjudicated - the grant is discretionary. You will need to speak to the attorney who knows the background on your case for a better idea of what your chances may be, but you won't be able to get filing fees returned to you after you have filed.

    Once the government reviews and accepts an application they will not return the fee even if the result is a denial.
