Pending asylum case for real ID act (FBI name check)

Miami, FL |
Filed under: Political asylum

I've recently found out that my asylum application is pending at the asylum office because of the "real ID act" (FBI name check, as I understand it). How long does it usually take for the office to complete this check? I cannot do anything about it until they finish it by themselves, can I?

It usually takes a matter of weeks to complete the FBI name check.

In other cases where Immigration claims that the FBI takes too long, this attorney has obtained a letter with results from FBI stating that the check has been completed. You will wish to discuss your case with an attorney.
