I-821D form for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals or DREAMERS

On Behalf of | Aug 15, 2012 | Immigration Reform, New Immigration Laws |

USCIS has released the official form which individuals must use file to apply for an exercise of Deferred Action by the government. The form is the I-821D, which according to instructions, must also be filed with the I-765, Application for Work Authorization as well as an I-765WS Worksheet, which is something new. Additionally, the government has clarified and added more information to its Frequently Asked Questions regarding ages of potential applicants as well as what is considered to be “in school.” Especially now, more than ever, it is critical that young people potentially affected by this program seek the advice of qualified immigration attorneys who understand the implications of applying as well how the status, if granted, may affect a person’s eligibility for future applications or benefits. Things are rarely simple, especially when it comes to immigration status.
