You will not lose your wait time for your work permit. Be careful about marrying someone from a country other than your own. The Asylum Office will deny a case if they think that you can get residency or temporary protection in your spouse's country.See question
I'm in asylum process since july 2013, waiting for interview in Miami
The Miami asylum office answers cases about status in person. Case status is not available online.
Please know that they have a LONG backlog of cases because many officers have been reassigned to other types of work. You can read more about asylum, including the backlog, at the blog below.See question

An application for asylum does not affect the L1A status. In fact, if you are still in status when the decision on the asylum application is given, it is a benefit to you. Foreigners who are not in status and receive a denial must defend their case with an Immigration Judge. For more information on asylum, please see my blog. For information on scholarships for asylees, see the other link, too.See question

The last item you mentioned is the most important one: it was your step-father (and not you) who feared harm in Colombia. There is a right and wrong way to prepare your evidence for when you return to the U.S. I have had several asylum clients travel BRIEFLY to their home country because of an emergency such as yours. Please consult with an experienced immigration attorney before leaving, so that person can tell you what you will need to return to the U.S. with the fewest problems.

You should talk to an immigration lawyer before making any decisions that will affect your legal status in this country. There may be a way for you to get a green card even if divorced, but that law may not apply to you. Please make the investment in time to go speak with a professional if you wish to remain in the U.S. permanently.See question
knowing that i did the interview a year ago and did not receive any respond till now !! please help me , i am living such tough situation .. thanks
There is currently a backlog at the Miami Asylum office. Our Syrian cases have likewise been delayed, including interviews. Please remember that you may apply for work permit 150 days after filing your application. With regards to the possibility of winning, it depends on the strength of the evidence more than the office where the case is submitted. Good luck.

My mother want to petition for me and my family. I how long would it take for the process to be complete? I married lady over 21?
No one can say exactly how long it will take, as it depends on how many visa numbers are available. It will take years, but that time will pass anyway. I advise my clients to file the petition, let an attorney do the follow up, and -- when you least expect it -- the lawyer will call you saying its time to file for the green card (or immigrant visa). Nothing worth doing is easy. Good luck.See question
