The Citizenship and Immigration Service (CIS) is experiencing HEAVY delays in scheduling asylum applicants for interviews. This is because more persons are applying for asylum during the last three years than in a very long time. CIS officers have also been asked to work on credible fear interviews instead of asylum interviews. A credible fear interview involves several hours of questioning for persons who are detained and fear returning to their home country.
If applicants fear that their lives or the lives of loved ones back home may be harmed due to this delay, contact the Florida law firm of Blandon Law at (954) 385-0157 immediately. We may be able to expedite the case.
In addition, withdrawing the application may result in the case being sent to Immigration Court. In some parts of the United States, it is faster to be heard by an Immigration Judge than to get an appointment with a CIS asylum officer. Before taking this step, please consult with an experienced immigration expert as there are consequences to withdrawing or rescheduling.
