I-485 Application Approved for Asylee
In 2008 our client was granted asylum as she had applied for asylum within one year of her entry to the United States and feared returning to her home country on account of her political opinion. In 2009, when a year had passed since her grant of asylum, we filed an I-485 application for adjustment of status on her behalf and on behalf of her daughter. The I-485 applications were approved. Our client plans to file for citizenship 4 years and 9 months after the issuance date of her green card which is backdated 1 year as is the case for all asylees.
