Good evening – sorry to hear about the situation. As long as your mother agrees, you could go back to your home country. Their asylum application would be judged on its own merits.

Customer
Thank you for answering, can you clarify how their application will be judged? Currently we had a possitive answer in the hearing and applied to residency
img

Joey, Expert

They review each application independently and determine whether the reasons stated are plausible and, if possible, corroborated by some evidence.

Joey, Expert

I’m just stepping away from the computer for the evening, but if you had a follow up question, please let me know and I can answer it upon my return tomorrow morning.

Customer
my family would have to go trought a whole hearing process again?
Customer
Thank you for answers

Joey, Expert

Their application would likely continue as is.

Customer
Ok thank you
Customer

You just leave the country. You could withdraw your asylum application if you applied individually.

Customer
I didint applied individually, but we have our asylum application accepted.

You can just leave assuming you have your mother's permission to baord the flight.

Customer
i can have my mothers permission

Joey, Expert

You'll need your identity documents if you want to board a flight.

Customer
My passport and documents were taken when we arrived

Joey, Expert

You'll need to request them back if you want to travel.

Customer
Okay, can i ask for my documents only? That wouldn't interfere with my family's documents, right?
img

Joey, Expert

You could request your documents back. If they want to know why, you can let them know that only you are withdrawing your asylum claim.

Customer
Okay, thank you
Customer
Its very important to me to know that my family's process would not be affected by my actions

Joey, Expert

If you are concerned, wait until you receive a firm decision from the government, then leave.

Customer

Joey, Expert

If it was accepted, then you can leave.

Customer
Okay, that wouldn't concern myself about interfiering with my family's application for residency?
