User Rating: 5 / 5

Many asylum seekers are currently waiting years before receiving an interview at an Asylum Office, which can be frustrating.  Unfortunately, these delays exist at all of the Asylum Offices throughout the country.  The tremendous numbers of people applying for asylum, as well as the people who come across the border without proper documentation, have led to a large backlog which the Asylum Offices have to work through.  For example, the Anaheim Asylum Office is currently scheduling interviews for applications which were filed in 2011.  It is important to remain patient through this process. If you have questions about the status of your own application, please speak to an attorney.
