USCIS Updates FAQs on Deferred Action

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has updated its frequently asked questions (FAQs) several times on the new deferred action program for childhood arrivals. The latest version was updated on September 7, 2012.

The Department of Homeland Security has advised that its processing goals are one month from issuance of a receipt to the biometric appointment, and four to six months on average for processing the initial batch of deferred action requests. This time could increase as more requests are received.

USCIS said it plans to issue additional FAQs as people work through the process.
