I came to US with a student visa. I hired a lawyer and filed for an asylum in LA about a year ago. I successfully passed fingerprints procedure and was scheduled for an interview. Unfortunately, my lawyer couldn't make it that day, so we asked for rescheduling of the interview. I have been waiting for 11 months for a new interview appointment. Meanwhile, my lawyer transfered my case to SF (about 8 months ago). My lawyer always answers my calls, but the answer is "we have to wait!" I am still waiting for the interview, but nothing happens.
1) What is the regular waiting time for interview reschedule?
2) what can I do to speed up the process?
Many thanks in advance! I appreciate your help and time a lot!
