I came to the United States on a B2 Visa in 2016 and I'm currently out of status. I got married to a LPR (Green Card Holder) 6 weeks after I arrived the US and i filed form I-130 in March 2017. My form I-130 application is still pending. I was arrested for a DUI in December 2018. The Phoenix police that arrested me transferred me over to ICE on December 16. ICE transferred me from the Phoenix detention center to their Texas detention Center. I applied for a bond hearing and was giving a bond of $10,000 by the Immigration Judge. I was never informed there was going to be the Master hearing and the bond hearing together on same day. The master hearing was done before the bond hearing and during the master hearing, the judge asked if I have any fear of going back to my country which i answered NO. The judge also asked me to designate a country of deportation and i designated my country. I told the judge I have relief available to me and he gave me 30 days to file the relief. After the master hearing, the judge had the bond hearing and gave me a $10,000 bond. I'm currently out on bond and applied for the case moved down to Phoenix. Now I have a court case coming up in April, is it possible to tell the Immigration Judge i wish to change my pleadings?. I'm planning to file for asylum based on my fear of persecution on religious grounds. My question is will the Immigration Judge allow me to change my pleadings and file for asylum?.
