INFOPASS for Deferred action for childhood arrivals.

Asked almost 2 years ago - Baytown, TX

I know it says that they won't give me any information on my case if I do an INFOPASS at my local uscis office for deferred action but is it worth the try to do one and go get possibly information on my case? I've been waiting 8 months already and still no decision on my case my case was recivied and processed on August 23,2012 and I did my biometric appointment on September 13,2012 and after that I haven't recivied a decision on my case I've been waiting 8 months already and I will be hitting 9 months of waiting on may 23,2013 should I make the INFOPASS?? HELP!

    Answered . Hi hope that you are well. We have some DACA's that have been transferred to other Service facilities that have also been pending a while (although I don't think as long as yours). An infopass for these situations is not going to be helpful. I would see an attorney and try to get help from a liaison through such. Good luck!
