Troy, MI |
Filed under: Political asylum

My I 485 based on marriage to US citizen got denied due to misrepresentation of material fact on my asylum application. If my I 601 gets denied and I appear in front of immigration judge, how likely is it he will give me frivolous asylum given the fact that I admitted the misrepresentation on my 601 application.

  1. Best answer

    It is possible that an immigration judge could review the asylum application and then make a finding that it was frivolous. A finding that an asylum application was frivolous carries serious and significant immigration consequences. I suggest that you consult with an immigration attorney very soon.

It is your responsibility to retain a lawyer to analyze the facts specific to your particular situation in order to give you specific advice. Specific answers require an investigation into all facts about your case. Any answers offered on Avvo are of a general nature only and are not meant to create an attorney-client relationship.

  3. You should consult an immigration attorney as soon as possible. Being in front of an Immigration Judge is a very serious process and the government will have an attorney representing them so you need an attorney to represent you. It is possible that you will be charged with having a frivolous asylum claim.
