After the asylum application is filed, there is typically a waiting period (up to four years) for an interview or court hearing.
The team of immigration lawyers at our law firm in Nevada understands that the prolonged wait process can be difficult. Lengthy wait times often result in familial separation and undue stress and hardship to some of the most vulnerable groups.
Fortunately, asylum seekers can seek work authorization, or a work permit, after their immigration matter has been pending for at least 150 days. In other words, applicants can live and work in the U.S. while they wait for an interview date for their asylum immigration case.
