  1. Hello everyone! My DACA expires on November 11th, 2016 so I'm currently in the 150-120 day window meant for reapplication. I wanted to fill out my forms already but noticed the most current I-821D form expires ten days from today, on June 30th. Do I use this version of the form anyway or should I wait until after the 30th for the updated application? Do you think the form will be updated promptly or am I just putting myself at risk by waiting? I'm just highly confused seeing as USCIS states "Use the most recent version of Form I-821D on our website or USCIS will reject your form" and my only option right now is to use a form that will have expired by the time anybody reviews my case.
  2. Approved!

    I am very happy to share the good news with my fellow dreamers; this morning I got an email from USCIS telling me that I have been approved and that I should be receiving my card very soon. This forum has been very helpful and I would like to thank all those who showed support. I'm still going to be around to show the same support for those who are still waiting. Keep your hopes up. Applied: 11-23-2012 Biometrics: 12-21-2012 R.F.E. Sent: 9-5-2013 R.F.E. Response: 10-11-2013 Last Service Request Made: 1-13-2014 Approved: 2-3-2014
  3. Still Waiting

    Hello Everyone, First off I want to wish everybody a Happy New Year, I hope your holidays went well. I am writing this post to express my frustration with the wait I've had to endure this past 13 months. I applied for DACA on Nov. 23, 2012 and till this day I haven't received a decision on my case. I have made several service requests, I've sent several emails, tried getting help from my senator, I responded to and R.F.E and still nothing. I reside in Texas and my application is being processed in Nebraska, wtf?! Are any of you still waiting after a year for a decision on their case? Do you live in Texas or any neighboring states and you have you're application being processed in Nebraska or Delaware? If so, what are you doing in regards to the long processing time besides waiting? Is there anything else we can do but wait and hope to get our case resolved? I don't understand why this is taking so long. I know people who applied in 2013 many months after me and received their papers within about 4-5 months. In this year of waiting I turned down better paying jobs including outside my state. I don't know what to do anymore this situation really sucks.
  4. The One Year Club

    Hello Everyone, Today marks the day that USCIS received my application 13 months ago. The wait has been very frustrating to say the least, and the service provided by the operators when I call USCIS has been worse. I have many 3 service requests, I have written to my senator and I have even received a R.F.E and returned it to USCIS over 2 months ago and still nothing. I'm from South Texas and my application is being processed at the Nebraska Service Center, where they don't normally doesn't handle applications from Texas. At this point I'm just giving up hope. I had to turned down better paying jobs, got a ticket for driving with no license and I have to keep explainig to everyone almost everyday when they ask me about my papers. I'm sure there are many of you who are also part of the one year club or who waited almost a year to get your case approved. What steps are you following or followed to help get your case approved? Application Received: Nov. 23, 2012 Date of Biometrics: Dec. 21, 2012 R.F.E. Sent: Sep. 5, 2013 R.F.E. Returned: Oct. 11, 2013 Last Service Request: Dec. 12, 2013 STILL NOTHING
  5. I Want To Get This Over With!

    Hello, On Sept. 5 I received a RFE from USCIS which I responded to on Oct. 9 and which they received on Oct. 11. It has been almost a month since I got an email from USCIS telling me that they had received all the additional information they had requested. What now? I know they told me that it will take a minimum of 60 days for me to get a decision on my case but I am not so sure since a lot of people have to wait longer than that after they submitted their RFE's. Can anybody tell me if they had to send and RFE and how long did you have to wait to get a decision on your case? I have been waiting for almost a year now since I submitted my application (Nov. 23, 2013) my patience is wearing thin and its just very frustrating.
  6. The Wait After Rfe

    USCIS sent me a RFE on Sep. 5 which I responded to on Oct. 9 by sending all the additional evidence they requested. On Oct. 11 I got an email saying that they had received the evidence I sent them which brought me some calm. Its almost been two weeks since they last contacted me. Does anyone know approximately how long it takes for USCIS to make a decision on a case after a RFE has been responded to?
  7. Cashed Check

  8. C'est La Vie

    Hello fellow Dreamers,I know I haven't really done a proper introduction of myself , so here's a try on doing that. I was born in Peru and I moved to this blessed country when I was 12 years old. I've lived here since then, I'm 23 years old and currently going to Santa Monica College and I'll be attending California State University, Northridge in the Fall of 2013. If you guys have any question let me know. Miguel C.
  9. Hey Dreamers, My I-821 application was approved online on 2/21/13. And when I checked my I-765 it was still in Initial Review. Today I received my I-821 approval letter in the mail, but still no I-765 approval letter. Most people get both of their approval letters in the mail on the same day, so that worries me a bit. My applications were received on 12/16/12, and I had my Biometrics appointment on 1/28/13. It hasn't even been a month since I had my Biometrics, so could that be the reason why my I-765 has not been approved? Also, can I still apply for a SSN with just the I-821 approval letter? Thanks :-) ****UPDATE**** - My I-765 was approved yesterday (2/27/13). It took less than a month after my Biometrics. I wish all of you the best, and keep DREAMing

  11. So I have been APPROVED! I NEVER received a text message! But I did receive an EMAIL! Of the early yesterday morning of November 30th, I received an email from uscis. Today, the first of December was the day I viewed the emails haha. The email read as this: Application Type: I765 , APPLICATION FOR EMPLOYMENT AUTHORIZATION This was sent at 9:30 a.m 11/30 Application Type: I821D , Consideration of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals This was sent at 11:30 a.m 11/30 Feeling: With school finals coming up, I stopped focusing on my case. I used to come to this forum everyday, hoping and wishing my anxiousness would be healed by the constant good news of the associated members. But GOSH! That helped for so long. Even though your happy for others, you do not really feel jealous or upset, but begin to get a little more anxious and worried for your case. So after letting go, USCIS contacted me of my change of statues. I do not know how to feel. I never been the girl that ever won anything, so it's a new feeling. Like I am still in disbelief. Seriously It took me a whole day to muster up feelings of happiness! So my point of this topic is not to rant on about myself being approved, but too let those others that have still been in the "initial review" and been waiting, in what they would consider a "longer time" that I UNDERSTAND. ITS EMOTIONAL AND STRESSFUL. IM WITH U. BUT YOU HAVE TO LET GO AND LET GOD TAKE CONTROL.
