uscis to accept deferred action requests beginning august 15

USCIS has announced that they will begin accepting requests for deferred action as of August 15, 2012. All forms and instructions will be made available by August 15, 2012 as well.

In addition, USCIS has advised as follows:
Requestors – those in removal proceedings, those with final orders, and those who have never been in removal proceedings – will be able to affirmatively request consideration of deferred action for childhood arrivals with USCIS.

Requestors will use a form developed for this specific purpose.

Requestors will mail their deferred action request together with an application for an employment authorization document and all applicable fees to the USCIS lockbox.

All requestors must provide biometrics and undergo background checks.

Fee waivers cannot be requested for the application for employment authorization and biometric collection. However, fee exemptions will be available in limited circumstances.

The four USCIS Service Centers will review requests.
