I did my asylum interview last week and the io told me to came in 2 weeks to pick up my decision. My lawyer told me it went fine but for me I am afraid . Before picking my decision the io ask me to send some documents to check weather it's true or not and we send what the io asked . Is the asking of document is a bad sign for my decision?
It's best if you talk with your immigration attorney about this. Please see
Mr. Shusterman's (former INS Trial Attorney, 1976-82) response to your question is general in nature, as not all the facts are known to him. You should retain an attorney experienced in immigration law to review all the facts in your case in order to receive advice specific to your case. Mr. Shusterman's statement above does not create an attorney/client relationship.
I had to mail a client's student visa in and he passed. However this is not a good or bad thing. It's just not necessarily bad. I would speak to your lawyer who unlike us knows about what documents you speak of and how they relate to your case.
The above statement should not be construed as legal advice, does not create an attorney-client relationship, and is provided purely for informational purposes. You are advised to seek legal advice from an attorney and NOT AN UNLICENSED PARALEGAL SERVICE for any legal questions you have.
These questions should be posed to your attorney of record who is eminently familiar with all aspects of your asylum case - we are not. Also, he/she was there with you at your asylum interview in Anaheim (and saw and heard everything).
That having been said, as a general principle, it is always a good sign when the asylum office asks you to submit additional documents after an interview. But it all depends: did they want you to submit additional "country condition" documents or personal ones. If of a personal nature, that goes into the subjective prong of your asylum application, to determine your credibility. That then might not be very good sign for your case, in that it is now your credibility that is being questioned. But, then again, without more details, you are forcing us to speculate here.. I might completely off. Talk to your attorney!
