I applied for an asylum back in August 2011. I got all the receipt number and biometrics date within 3 weeks but since then I've never heard from USCIS. I called them but they told me they cannot provide information over the phone. So, I mailed them the request letter to provide me the information and I was informed that my application process is in backlog. Please help !!!
I applied in New York asylum office. (Cross Island Plaza, Rosedale)
Consult with a competent attorney or BIA-accredited representative who has experience with the Rosedale Office or can consult with the NYC attorney community to see what other practitioners are encountering.
I assume you got your work permit?

This answer should not be construed as legal advice and should not be relied on to take any action whatsoever; neither does it create a lawyer-client relationship.
Well, you received your answer -- your application is part of the backlog, which means it could be a year before you're interviewed. At least, you are eligible for an EAD to work.
An attorney-client relationship is not formed by my responses to questions on Avvo. My responses are not intended to be legal advice and must not be relied upon as legal advice.
Unknown. It is backlogged.
