I'll go straight to the point: I applied for Asylum on Oct. 2002 (Miami Asylum Office), had the interview on Feb. 2005; 15 days later I was instructed to appear at the office to pick up the asylum decision. Instead, I received a letter saying that they were going to mail the decision to the most recent address I had provided to them. I have never received any decision in almost 5 years now. I have even contacted the Immigration Court (EOIR) phone (1-800-898-7180) and I am not required to appear in front of an immigration judge yet (THANKS TO GOD!!!).
I got married to an U.S. Citizen on September 2009, my wife and I submitted the I-130, I-485, I-864 and I-765 applications in November 2009. I already received the Biometrics appointment for this month (December 2009). After that I guess what is coming is the Interview for my Resident Card (Temporary).
My question is WHEN should I send the letter to Withdraw my Asylum Application??? I know I have to wait first to obtain my Resident Card and then cancel my Asylum Petition. Yet, Should I give it to the Immigration Officer at the end of the interview (ONLY IF I GET THE RESIDENT CARD) or Should I take it to the Asylum Office myself????
What I am supposed to write on the letter???? I already have written this:
"I would like to politely request the cancellation of my Petition of Asylum case that is pending in your office. At the moment of this request I have been granted a Resident Card based on the adjustment of status derived from a petition for an eligible Alien Relative of a United States Citizen."
Is that ok??? Any ideas??? Should I use some legal vocabulary???? Am I missing something in the process??? Should I have complications due my case??? Any new information will be greatly appreciated!!!!
