Should I go to my asylum interview if I already have a green card?

    I am a Syrian citizen whose application for asylum case has been pending for a few years now. On January 2015, I got married to a US citizen and obtained a Green Card on July 2017. I just received a notification that my asylum interview has been scheduled for next month, and I am not sure how to proceed.

    a) Should I go and let them know that I am withdrawing my application?
    b) Should I just notify them in writing that I am dropping my application?
    c) Should I proceed with the interview?

    I am worried that if I were to withdraw my application, it would raise suspicion as to the bona fide nature of my marriage. It is a legitimate marriage: we own property together, we file taxes together, our finances are shared and we are expecting our first baby in 2 months.

    I am also afraid this will be problematic when I am applying for citizenship in 2 years.

    I am also worried that if I were to go to the interview and my case gets denied, my Green Card would be jeopardized.

    Consult an immigration attorney ASAP.

    You have too much to lose by seeking information from strangers on the internet.
