Pending decision on my Asylum Case.

Newark, NJ |

Is there a reason for the Newark's asylum office for not giving a decision on my asylum case even after 3 months ? I had an asylum interview on February then I was handed out NOID (Notice of intent to deny) the week after for being in legal status. I submitted new evidences within 16 days and now it has been 3 months since I submitted my new evidences and haven't got any decision made on my case yet.

  1. Best answer

    3 months? It is within reasonable time in Newark. They are overwhelmed with cases and their supervisors, who need to sign off on a case are very busy.

  2. There's definitely a reason. There's just no way for anyone on this forum to know what it is without information about your case and contacting the asylum office on your behalf.


  3. A determination on your asylum claim cannot be made overnight. I agree with my colleagues - this is within a reasonable amount of time. You will have to wait it out.
