Q: I came with form i220A. I have been in the US since 06/06/22 but my court date is on 05/05/23..
Is there anything that can be done if the court date is one month before my year in this country?
A: There is much more information needed in order for any attorney to offer meaningful advice. Consider scheduling a consultation with a competent and experienced immigration attorney. Many attorneys offer online video consultations. Good luck.
A: You do not provide enough facts for a proper consultation. If you desire a consultation call (888) 460-4600.
You last entered the U.S. on June 06, 22 and your hearing date before an immigration judge is on May 05, 23.
There might be several things that can be done in your case, but I need more facts. But for certain, you must notify the court of any changes in your address and contact information on form EOIR 33IC within 5 days of such move. I strongly advise that if you fear returning back to your home country, you file your asylum application as soon as practicable with the immigration judge; you don't have to wait until the date of the hearing to file your applications for relief from removal. I suggest you seek the legal advice of an experienced immigration attorney to represent you in court. If you need further assistance and would like to discuss your case in detail you can call me at 954-237-1777. Wish you the best in your immigration process. Hablamos Espanol.

If you entered the United States on a Form I-20A, this indicates that you are in the U.S. on an F-1 student visa. As an F-1 visa holder, you are allowed to stay in the U.S. for the duration of your program of study, plus a period of authorized practical training (if applicable), and a grace period of 60 days following the completion of your program of study or practical training.
Assuming that you have maintained your F-1 student status and have not violated the terms of your visa, you should be allowed to remain in the U.S. until the completion of your program, even if your court date is one month before the end of your first year in the country.
It's important to make sure that you attend your court date as scheduled, and that you comply with any instructions or orders given by the court. If you have concerns about your status or your ability to attend the court date, it may be helpful to consult with an immigration attorney or your school's international student advisor for guidance.
In general, if you have maintained your F-1 status and have not violated the terms of your visa, you should be able to continue your studies and remain in the U.S. for the duration of your program, regardless of the specific timing of your court date. However, it's important to make sure that you are in compliance with all immigration regulations and that you seek appropriate guidance if you have any questions or concerns.
