Applicants for Asylum & their Documents
Asylum Application for Egyptian client. After waiting patiently for over 5 years for a decision on her family’s pending asylum application (I-589), Egyptian client decided she could no longer live in limbo and therefore, retained our office to force immigration to schedule her interview by filing a Writ of Mandamus in Federal District Court. Less than 30 days later, USCIS scheduled her asylum interview. Effective May 31, 2023, we updated the filing location for certain affirmative asylum applications submitted by mail. We expect this change to help streamline asylum processing and improve adjudication efficiency by digitizing paper filings. However, we will accept forms filed at service centers until we publish a Federal Register notice finalizing this change.
