State/Country relating to question: Florida
Unfortunately, you cannot go back to your country until you become a U.S. Citizen. If you go back to your country, there is a chance that the U.S. will reopen your case and if they believe that you are no longer in danger or that you lied about being in danger, they can strip you of your Residency and deport you. I am truly sorry, but you will not be able to go back to Romania for awhile. Here is an official link so you can read more:
Please let me know if you have any additional questions. I would be happy to answer them for you without additional charge. If there is a delay in getting back to you it is either because I am answering other questions or I had to log off, but I will be back with you as soon as possible. My goal is to provide you with top-notch service - please don't forget to leave me feedback if that is available for you to do so and a bonus is always appreciated. If you would like to request me in the future, just go to http://www.justanswer.com/law/expert-guillermosenmartin/. Thank you!
Excuse me, why is this poor service when I have told you the truth AND provided you with an official link?Guillermo J. Senmartin, Esq.41094.1993965625
Hello? Why are you unwilling to answer? By giving you the information I have given you, I have saved you from possibly losing your Residency status. I know it is not what you were hoping to hear, but it is not my fault that the law does not help you. So what else can I do for you to be satisfied?Guillermo J. Senmartin, Esq.41095.6634539699
