Thread: asylum-marriage.

  1. #1
    Hi.I have the following situation. More then 2.5 years ago I had asylum case opened. During this time I got married to U.S citizen And according to this another case was opened. I had the interview and I-130 form was approved, but I-485 didn't come through, because asylum case was open. After 2 weeks I got the letter my marriage case is closed, But later my lawer closed the asylum case because I-130 approved.And now my lawer sent a letter-request to reopen marriage case. I'm tired of paying too much money to him, i just want to know if he is doing right, or maybe I can do everything by myself. Thank you.

    I would assume that the marriage case is the best way to get legal in this country. I would get a second opinion. There are alot of people who would spend alot of money to get a legal status at any cost. So, dont worry about the money. You can make the money once you are legal.

    What do yo mean by 'marriage case closed'?
    Were you granted asylum?
    Did one year pass after your asylum grant and did you file I-485 based on it?
    Did you subsequently or simultaneously marry?
    Did you file concurrent I-485 based on approval of I-130?
    What is your time line, in what order what was filed and what were the USCIS decisions, on what chronological order?
    What did your attorney 'close', in what chronological order and why?
    What is your current status in US?
    What was your status at the time of I-130 filing
    and approval?


    Be precise.

    -I 've got a letter , it was written "... the application for permanent residence filed with this office is administratively closed. No further action will be taken on your application." It's because immigration judge had jurisdiction iver my case ( asylum) at that time.
    -asylum is not granted.
    -...
    -...
    -When I had a hearing my attorney closed the asylum case, and nos I have no idea what my status is.

    In case if your asylum case is denied and you are an illegal - nothing to worry.
    Simply proceed with your marriage AOS.
    It's routine.


    Good luck,

    Okay let's talk serious business. Can one really proceed to AOS even if his asylum case is denied and remains illegal? If this is so, all illegal aliens and on removal proceedings will just resort to marrying US citizens to escape deportation.

    I have an actual case...in fact someone I know. His parents were illegal and my friend was their dependent as a minor. He was included in the removal proceeding and was also ordered removed. The case went on for several years and he's an adult now no longer a minor. Can he still be legalized by marrying a US citizen? His defense would be at the time of his parents' violation of status, he was still a minor. But the question is...he didn't leave when he reached the age of maturity. He's now 28 years old and is illegal because of that. He wants to marry but is afraid he might be deported when he shows up for interview with his future wife.

    When your friend marries a USC and goes to file papers to adjust status.. a removal order will be brought against him for being Entered without inspection .. if that was the case. snuck in without visa. If his parents came in on legal visa with him and just overstayed. He will be able to adjust status by marrying a USC and not worry about deportation. All will be forgiven.

    No Asylum case that is denied is not that easy to just go marry USC to solve everything. Remember once case is denied, that alien will go into removal proceedings to be removed. If asylum case was denied becuase alien used forged documents to get here, marriage will not solve problem to adjust status. I have painstakingly seen this twice. No marriage did not save and they have to live in Spain. one in Canada. Wives did not follow.

    Of course aliens in removal proceedings find USC to marry .. and many of them end up adjusting status in front of IJ. many of them are denied. its called take your shot , u have nothing to lose. all fall under scrutiny.

    Asylum cases fall under a much greater scrutiny when it comes to marriage in removal proceeding.
