    If you are serious about your case, then schedule a private consultation with a competent and experienced immigration lawyer in your area, one who specializes in asylum law.

    It is not by airing your problems in a general forum like Avvo and fishing for free answers that you are going to get anything done or resolve your case.

    Answered . Attorney can be researched in their respective states. You should have thought about it before sending the money in. I think you need to research yours and if he is not an attorney, demand that he return the money. If he is an attorney, meet with him and ask to provide proof of filing. When filed, a complete I-589 generates a receipt notice from the Asylum Office at USCIS within a week or two.

    Answered . I agree with my colleagues.

    You can always check with the bar association of the state your attorney is licensed in to verify that they are actually an attorney. Usually there is an online search for each state that you can access.
