I had my interview in august and am pretty still in status and that's the reason why i still dont have a decision on my case.On the day of my interview the officer said that they will mail the application and that i don't have to worry much still i am still on status .When she told me that i knew it was going to take long and that make more sense because the immigration when it has more cases of out of status folks ,they give priority to those out of status because they can cause more threat to the country compared to the one in status.So let's just wait and wait untill ou turn comes.Mine is almost 3 months since my inteview in missouri.Hope you doing fine?just wait for sure one day it will come out ,you cannot do anyhing about that

Best regards

waaaaaoooo guys 3 months - 11 months that's really long time..... I will pray to get me decision soon ..... I hope that
Do you think there is ways to follow up with the asylum office. such as going directly to the Asylum Office and inquire about case there or send letter for inquiry by mail to the Asylum office with the name of the immigration officer who interview on it. !!!

I don't know but it's really hard to wait long time

I get my decision after 2 and a half years. I stayed on status all those times. I did status request many times by mail.

talfam,
what type of status did you have? was it a student visa? if yes did you work with pending asylum? What i want to know is can you work under pending asylum work authorization while being on f1 status.

yop ,you can asylum_seeker,you can apply for employment authorization after 150 days from the date you filed for asylum till the 150 days have passed and that your case is still pending.So just calculate how many days have passed from when you filed your asylum and if 150days have passed,then you can apply for EAD CARD through www.uscis.gov

I understand you can get an EAD. But what if you are in F1 status and after 150 days you get EAD thru pending asylum. My question is does it violate your F1 status to work under Pending asylum EAD? I am concerned if my case is denied will I still retain my F1 status or I will have my F1 revoked because I worked with asylum case pending.

you wil still be in status even after you have your EAD simply because f-1 and asylum are treated on different system and even if the Social security office notice ,they will know you are working with your pending asylum and not your f-1 status.Even if your case is denied you will keep being in on f-1 status.Asylum doesn't affect your status what ever the decision

Assylum_seeker, I had been in student status during the pending period. I didn't apply for work authorization because I had assistantship at school and don't have to work outside. I had also the same fear as you had now and didn't want to jeopardize my status. I think it is possible to apply and get the permit as pepsico said.

Why it took you 2.5 yrs to get a decision? what was your country of persecution? I am afraid if mine takes that long its already 1 year since filing. and 11 months in interview.

asylum_seeker, Whenever I did status request by mail I got a reply " the decision is pending required for background and security check". This is the only reason I am aware of. May be your case can be processed early and get the decision soon. Good Luck

Which asylum office processed your case? I did a status check about a month ago and it said "pending for additional review".
