I hope that you are doing well! I have a few immigration

FOR JUDITHI hope that you are doing well! I have a few immigration questions for you, whenever you have a chance:1. If a person has a pending asylum application, does he need to wait until the final decision is made before he can submit immigration papers based on his marriage to a U.S. citizen? He wants to figure out the best route in order to remain in the U.S.2. For a person who has been approved for an O or P visa, do they need to bring a hard copy of their application to their interview at the U.S. Consulate abroad? What other items do you recommend that he bring?3. Does that same person need to bring a hard copy of the approval letter to the interview? I ask this because I do not know if he will receive the approval letter at his international address in time for the interview. Can his attorney send him a copy via email which he can then print out?Thank you very much!

After reviewing an I-90 renewal application with a client,

for Guillermo:After reviewing an I-90 renewal application with a client, the client insists that he was not in deportation proceedings as I indicated in Part 3 #4. The client entered the country illegally and immediately applied for political asylum. As his case was pending for 2 years, and then an immigration judge acknowledged his marriage and terminated the proceedings. Does this automatically mean he was in deportation proceedings because he applied for political asylum and was seen before the immigration judge?
