filed I-589 October 3 at Arlington. it has been been 54 without getting interview notice. when I ask the office on email about my case the replied that "Your application has been received and is queued for scheduling. An asylum interview will be scheduled as soon as resources permit." what is that means? I thought that means my case is on the backlog list, right????????? help
If a case is not scheduled within the first 6 weeks after the application is received, it is safe to assume that it is in in the backlog. The good news for you is that although there are nearly 4,000 people in the backlog at the Arlington office, the current system is last in first out. So you will get preference over the thousands of folks who applied before you (crazy, I know).
Start working with an attorney now. An asylum applicants chances for approval are MUCH greater when represented by experienced counsel.
Best of luck.

Hi! I am assuming here that you are referring to 54 DAYS that your application for asylum has been pending? Affirmatively filed asylum applications can takes months, or even a year or so to be set for an interview at the local asylum office. The asylum offices are experiencing a significant back long right now. All you need to do is be patient, and comply with any requests that the asylum office makes (Biometrics, etc). I am hoping that you worked with an attorney when you initially submitted your asylum application. If you did not, I suggest that you find an immigration attorney to assist you when it comes time for your interview. Asylum law is very complex, and I would not recommend that you try to go it alone. Good Luck!
