Stacking U.S. Legalization Options While Awaiting Asylum Relief in the United States

Currently, wait times in the United States for an asylum interview or court date may be 'years away' based on the volume of applications filed each year by foreign nationals. During the lengthy wait time, however, life goes on. For instance, asylum applicants may meet someone and marry, or find employment which allows for sponsorship by a U.S. employer.


Our attorneys have been successful in filing petitions for employment and family based sponsorship while asylum applications are still in 'cue'. Asylum applicants are not prohibited from applying for additional or alternative visa options to adjust status to a U.S. permanent resident where the opportunity arises. However, the withdrawal of an asylum application is very sensitive and should not be undertaken by asylum applicants unless they work with experienced immigration legal counsel to avoid fraud allegations.
