Haven't heard back from the Asylum office

New Brunswick, NJ |

I had political asylum interview on the first week of February. The next week I received a notice of intent to deny (NOID) because I have valid legal status in the United States. I had 16 days to explain in writing either why the claim should be granted or I needed to submit new evidence to support the claim. I submitted my new evidence within 16 days but it has been a month since February 26th when the new evidence was submitted and I haven't heard anything back from the asyulm office. What am I suppose to do? do I need to worry?

    Lyndhurst asylum office is known taking time to make a decision. Ironically, those decisions that came out positive also took the longest time to get.
