I was granted asylum (defensive) by an immigration judge. My spouse who was in proceedings with me was granted derivative status at the same court hearing. I was told derivative status would be afforded to my minor child who was not in removal proceedings. We (all three) went to the field office to get our I-94's but I was told my child was not granted and I have to file an I-730 petition. I am really confused by this because I had the child included (attorney filled out application) on my I-589 along with my spouse. Been waiting for a response to my I-730 petition which I filed by myself 5 months ago. My child already did biometrics 5 months ago. Since then I have not heard from them. Is this normal for processing time and how derivative asylum was not granted to him back in court ?
