There is good news Washington! The Washington D.C. Affirmative Asylum Office (ZAR), due to severe backlogs, has been taking years to interview and process asylum applications for those who have submitted an I-589. In efforts to reduce wait times, the asylum office now offers options for faster expedited processing in certain cases:
1) Emergent Circumstance.
If you or your family have a medical emergency or can demonstrate extreme hardship you may complete a special application process and request an expedited date for your affirmative asylum interview/hearing.
2) Short List. If you or your immigration lawyer apply to be placed on a special short list, any cancellations or openings that become available for affirmative asylum interviews in 21 days or less; you would be contacted and have the opportunity to reschedule to this sooner date.
If you have any questions about whether you are eligible for either of the above categories to speed up your affirmative asylum case with the ZAR Asylum Office 1525 Wilson Blvd. Arlington, VA; you may visit www.scottcclaw.com to be connected with one of our attorneys.
