Can I bring my family members to the U.S. if I am seeking asylum?
We are currently working with a client who has an asylum case pending. We filed his application, but we do not yet have a decision on this case. He came to us asking if he could bring family members here while his asylum case is pending. Unfortunately, the answer to that question is no, you cannot bring your family members here while your asylum case is pending. The reason for this is because you are not yet an asylee. However, once your asylum application is approved, you will then be an asylee. At that point, you can then bring certain family members here to the United States. If you have any questions about the asylum process or any other immigration matters, give us a call.
