The Form I-821D, along with the Form I-765 and the Form I-765WS will be required as part of the filing. The Form I-821D is the form to be used for actual deferred action status.

The Forms and supporting documentation will be accepted starting on Wednesay, August 15, 2012. There is NO deadline in filing. So, there is no rush to be the first to get a DACA Application in on the first day. It is best to take your time and make sure the forms are completed accurately and completely.

Some good news in today's application is that to qualify for the education requirements, being "currently enrolled" also includes an education, literacy, or vocational training schools, and education program leading to a GED!!! So, you do NOT need to have a GED to apply, you just need to be enrolled in a program leading to a GED.

The Application will be filed at the defined location! Great news. Call today to start the process for you to obtain DACA Status. We urge you to make sure that you speak to an attorney before filing anything under this program to ensure you are eligible and to be sure the application is prepared correctly.
