Lynnwood, WA asked in Immigration Law for Washington

Q: how long does it usually take for a marriage green card if I have an asylum case in the immigration court?

I have an asylum case in the immigration court( my hearing date is in 2023) and I'm going to marry a USC. I'm wondering should I request a motion to delay my asylum case and submit my I-130 form at the same time. In my case, how long does it usually take for I-130 approved? I'm in Seattle, also can I apply for the marriage green card by myself or it's required to have an immigration attorney?

A: Requesting to postpone an asylum hearing would be a mistake. You are asking the same fact pattern worded differently in other posting, without realizing that you will damage your personal case and your future in the United States acting without an experienced legal advice.
