So, what do I need to do to inform USCIS about my GED?????

Asked 12 months ago - Chattanooga, TN

I had final order of deportation in 2009. I had expired Arizona DL and passport expired with visitor visa on it. CPB guy stop me to check my status at the airport in AZ. CPB hand me over ICE for removal, I got out on bond. NTA notice, but I never did went to my court date, so I got deportation order in absentia. . I have no criminal background. But, only thing I’m worried about my HS diploma, I just did two years in HS then dropped out. After I heard about DACA, I did online HS diploma from, then I submitted my app to USCIS on August 27, 2012. When I went college to apply with my online diploma they did not accept. They told me to do GED which I did and passed all exams. I’m still waiting for my approval and almost 1 year since I applied for DACA 

    Answered . You should retain an immigration attorney to guide you through this. DACA decisions should not be taking one year and there are very specific guidelines as to what meets the education requirement that an attorney can help you address. Good Luck.

    Answered . Your narrative shows problems with your DACA for several reasons: one is a finding of removability in absentia, second is completing a GED that may not be recognized as a conforming education for the DACA purposes. Please discuss your case with a local immigration counsel for further legal assistance.
