I first came to the US last year with F2 visa as a dependant with my husband, on the end of december 2. I went back to my home country for one month from July to August. Then came back with the same status. On September I applied for change of status from F2 to F1 and I got approved last month, and i'll start school on january 2011. I want to apply for asylum before the end of one year. My questions are;
1) the year starts from when I first came here which is December 2010, or from the second time I came which is August 2011??
2) how confidintual is the applying for asylum prosses, will the sponsers of my scholarship or my husband have any access to it?
3) if I got approved will I be able to study while pending, and Will The USCIS cancel my visa if my request for asylum wasn't approved?
