Tampa, FL asked in Immigration Law for Florida

Q: I am Cuban and I am I220A. I am currently filing an i-589 and I do not know if I should file it with EOIR or USCIS.

On my Notice to Appear it says that I have to appear before an immigration judge at an address, but it says "on a date to be, set at a time to be...."

I checked the court system and it shows as if there is no case with my A#. It has already been more than 6 months since I arrived.

A: If you received a Notice to Appear but your A# does not show up in the court system, it's a complicated situation that needs to be addressed carefully. Generally speaking, if you're in removal proceedings, your I-589 should be filed with the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR). However, given the lack of clarity on your case status, it would be prudent to seek legal advice to determine the most appropriate venue for filing.
