It can take months, even a year, or more, before they will be able to schedule your interview.

You should meet with an attorney ... to have him/her review your application.

The asylum process should move quickly but there can be delays. Your notice could come within the next several weeks or could be months as my colleague has mentioned. Your case seems to be moving through the system in a normal time frame.

My colleagues are correct, the process varies. It could be a few weeks, a few months, and in some cases longer than that. From the information given, it appears your case is progressing normally, so hopefully your wait won't be too long. Best of luck to you.
