My asylum case is in California immigration court and my first apperance is on May 2012 but I want to move to Maryland for better employment and college so I want to know about the process of changing state and I want to know if I'm going to face problems later if i do so and also want to know if there is an easier way to do so Please help
Your attorney would have to file a motion for change of venue. Keep in mind that transferring the case to MD would also mean that you might need a new attorney, or pay a lot for your attorney to travel all the way. Judges often don't like to move a case, so there is no guarantee the motion will be granted.
Ask your attorney about the pros and cons.
