ICE initiated removal proceedings a five months ago,my wife filed 1-130 petition for me and we still waiting for an interview date.I wanna ask people or legal counsels who are familiar with removal proceedings ,whether its advisable for me to contact the ICE officer who is in charge of my case to ask him whether i can file 1-485 with the court and file 1-765 EAD with the USCIS because i understand thats the lawful way of doing it.Should i contact the ICE officer in charge of my case for this question ??
You can not, and should not, contact ICE .... think of them as 'cops'.
If the NTA has been filed in court, only an Immigration Judge can give you permission to file the I-485 ... if you file w/o the judge's permission you will have wasted $1,070.
Find the money to hire a lawyer ... you should not try to 'play lawyer'.
