I am scared, My deferred action passed the 6 month time frame!

Asked over 1 year ago - Salinas, CA

So I applied for my deferred action and it was received August 31, 2012 and got my biometrics appointment October 3, and ever since I have not received an answer. I check my case online and it still says its on initial review, I am just worried. The 6 months have passed and still nothing. And I don't know if it is because for the initial entrance section I put the date from the second time I came here and haven't left which was back in 2002 I did not put that it was in 1998 because it was just for a couple months and did not have any prove to show but the shot sheet.

    Answered . I would get an infopass, however, it sounds like you did this application yourself and that is never a good idea, even if it is something "simple" such as a DACA application. Hire an attorney, and clean up the mess you may have made in your application.
