I filed a asylum case but married with a US Citizen in 2014 and have a baby.I plan to apply marriage green card in January 2015,but my asylum court appearance was scheduled in May 2015. Someone told me that I have to close my asylum case before conditional green card through marriage being issued.
How do I close my asylum case? Do I need to file any type of motion to asylum court?
if motion need to be filed, when should I submit the motion? On the court date or a few months before court appearance?
What will happen if motion to close case get denied? Do I have a chance to file new motions or final judgment will be made?
Will judge postpone the Asylum case once he saw I have motion? If so ,will my existing C8 card work status be revoked? Do I have chance to get work status from marraige
