Hi. I applied for asylum, and on I-589 part 2b “Have you, your spouse, your child(ren), or other family members, such as your parents or siblings, ever applied for or received any lawful status
in any country other than the one from which you are now claiming asylum”, I checked no because I thought it was asking if we applied for asylum in other country. But we lived in another country for a couple years when I was little, and I wrote so on my Affidavit in support. What should I do? Will it be bad for my case?
Just explain at the interview and they can correct the form there.
