Those who wish to apply for deferred action should NOT do so until 60 days from June 15, 2012. By August 13, 2012 the government will inform the public on the process of applying. Until then, there are ways that individuals can prepare themselves for applying for deferred action. If you believe that you can qualify for deferred action, gather documents, such as a passport, that prove that you were under the age of 31 as of June 15, 2012. You must also have financial, medical, school, and employment records to prove that you entered the United States under the age of 16. Lastly, collect school records such as diplomas, GED certificates, or documentation that proves that you are an honorable discharged member of the Armed Forces or Coast Guard.
