Still waiting to hear back about your Deferred Action application? Are you stressing out and frustrated that it’s taking too long to hear back and you have no idea what stage your application is in?
No worries! There is this really neat page where one can check their case status. Here are the basic steps.
Go to the USCIS homepage. Make sure it is .gov and not any other site.
Enter your receipt number in the box on the left corner. Make sure that you check the LIN# for both applications I-821D and I-765.
You will be taken to a page that looks like this where you will see where your Deferred Action is. At the bottom of the screen, you’ll be able to sign-up for text message and email notifications.
As your application progresses, if accepted, the blue circles will move across the screen with dates about when you should be expecting something in the mail.
Once accepted, you’ll also receive notice about the production of your card.
The wait time for Deferred Action is not too long compared to other programs. Just be patient and don’t panic! The USCIS website is reliable. Also, don’t be afraid to ask for help.
