Under applicable law, an asylum applicant has the right to have an attorney or representative present at their affirmative asylum interview. Due to social distancing guidelines, USCIS is temporarily allowing attorneys or representatives to participate in asylum interviews remotely, either by phone or video.
In order to elect this option, the applicant’s attorney will have to complete and return a Remote Attorney or Representative Participation in an Affirmative Asylum Interview form to the Asylum office at least 10 days before the scheduled Interview. Each asylum office has a customized form that must be completed and returned. You can access and download these forms on USCIS’s website by clicking on the link below:
Then click on the dropdown menu that says: Having Your Attorney or Accredited Representative Participate in Your Asylum or NACARA 203 Interview from a Remote Location via Telephone.
If you need remote representation at your Nunc Pro Tunc Asylum Interview, contact U.S. Immigration Lawyer Sean D. Hummel to schedule a consultation: (954) 385-3111 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
