Yes, you can move and you should notify them about your change of address and that you would need to travel to the San Francisco field office instead. - Disclaimer: This a general answer to your legal question. Unless you have a signed engagement letter with me, you should not consider this information to be legal advice.

Sorry, I mean to the LA field office.



Kristina, meaning that I can not continue my case in San Fransisco while living in LA? so I have to stay north CA until I receive social security no or green card? when I can move out of the area?

You can move, you will just need to notify USCIS about your address change. You can request to have your asylum interview in the office that is most convenient to you. The request may delay your case a bit, however.


Ask your attorney. If you do not have an attorney, you stand little chance of obtaining asylum and the best advice I can give you is to retain one.

you can, but must notify them and your case will move to that asylum office as well, most likely creating delays

This is not legal advice and a client attorney relationship is not created. For a free consultation call (718)234-5588.


If you move to LA ... the case must move to LA also.

You really, really, really need to have an attorney helping you ... religious persecution cases are not easy to win.
