I been in Initial Review ever since. Is there way to speed up the process? I have had friends that only take 2-3 months and I have been waiting almost 8 months.
The DACA processing times have been a nightmare. Almost all cases filed in August went in and out quickly because they were first. Even all my September cases were approved within 1-2 months. Then the system breaks down. When the system got overwhelmed with over 100,000 DACAs ( far more now ), the cases were sent to other regional centers for processing support. Now they are distributed for processing all across US, out of order and delayed. But seems like no rhyme or reason. So yes, frustrating. No way to expedite. Slow down could be individual background checks. Those with criminal/law enforcement records will take longer. After 6 months you can call the 1-800 number, but no immediate results there. Be patient.
