A: Yes, you were lawfully admitted, so that you can go to the University or School that provided the I-20 form. You have one year from your admission into the U.S. to properly file for asylum. Serious problems may not be enough. You must demonstrate to the satisfaction of U.S.C.I.S., not your immigration attorney, that you have a well founded fear of persecution based upon one or more of the reasons stated in the law.

If you merely fear crime, then that can complicate matters unless somehow the government is powerless to protect you, among other reasons that must be proven, not merely stated.

As a result, I strongly recommend an appointment or teleconference with a competent and experienced immigration attorney, before there are any other complications. The above is general information, not legal advice, and does not create an attorney client relationship.

A: IF you obtained a student F-1 visa and have no intention to attend classes that may constitute in itself immigration and visa fraud. I recommend discussing your prospects of asylum filing and other legal options ONLY in confidence with a selected licensed immigration attorney and off the public domain online for obvious reasons.
