A friend of mine got a NOID following his asylum interview couple of weeks ago. The NOID has stated 3 different reasons because of which, the Asylum Officer thinks he's not eligible for asylum. My friend has 16 days to file a rebuttal. Since he's new to the country, he is financially incapable to afford a lawyer to file a rebuttal for him. Therefore, he wants to know how important is it to hire a lawyer v/s filing the rebuttal by himself from an outcome perspective.
Has anyone in here has filed the rebuttal or knows someone who has? What was the result like?
Please help !
