My asylum case is currently pending. I had submitted new evidences on February after a NOID (Notice of Intent to Deny) was given. It has been 4 months as well. I am on OPT status after graduating from college. My OPT expires this July and in order to be in status I am planning to join grad school. If the Asylum case gets pending this way, Would I be able to cancel the asylum request? Because I am already on F1 status.
Applying for asylum and responding to NOIDs without an attorney is not a bright idea. There is a 19% approval rate for affirmative asylum application stemming from the Newark branch. You should consider consulting with an attorney.
Withdrawing your application may/may not be a good idea. It depends on your asylum claim. You are permanently barred from any type of visa/visa eligibility if your case is deemed frivolous. Withdrawing your case may raise a red flag as to whether your case was real or fake. If your claim wasn't frivolous and just merely non-meritorious, your withdraw should not have an adverse affect. Nonetheless, you should still consider speaking with an attorney.
I agree with my colleague. An asylum application is something that should be done with an immigration attorney. Canceling an asylum request is usually not a good decision unless there are compelling facts. need more information. Consult an experienced immigration attorney as soon as possible.
