Would you know what year is the Las Vegas asylum office processing now?

USCIS has not published information about the schedule of its sub-office, so I do not know. The schedule for main offices is here, and usually the sub offices are slower than the main offices:

Hi Jason,
Thank you for your time and your help,I would like to ask you about my situation. I applied for Asylum, and I had the interview a year ago, yet their no decision mailed to me. My daughter still in my home country, and she will be 20 years old after two months .I really concern about her age and my asylum case. My question is: If my case is granted asylum would that include my daughter if she is under 21 at the time of filing the application or the time of approval? I mean , if it takes them 3 years to approve my case and my daughter is over 21 by the time, what would be her status?
And is there any way to check my pending case status ? and how?
Thank you.

The only way to check the case status is to contact the asylum office directly. As for your daughter, if you filed while she was under 21, and she is older than 21 after your case is granted, you can still bring her to the US (under the Child Status Protection Act). If you win the case, you have 2 years to file for her.

I granted an asylum on 12/12/2014 and got EAD. This EAD will expire on 12/12/2015. I decided to apply for green card on 10/12/2015. Can I apply for green card on 10/12/2015?

We used to apply for the green card 11 months (and no sooner) after the asylum was granted. However, one time, USCIS rejected the application because it was too early, and now we mail the application exactly 12 months after asylum was granted. One thing: Check the approval letter carefully – the date the letter was mailed and the date asylum was granted may not be the same, so maybe you can apply earlier than you think.

Hi Jason,

Thank you for all the guidance you offer.
I was granted asylum status in 2008. I filed and worked on my case alone. A year later, I won the green card lottery, I applied for an adjustment of status and obtained my green card. Because my understanding was that I was granted a green card based on the lottery, I traveled back to my country of origin to visit my grandmother who was hospitalized 3 years after obtaining my green card and also obtained a national passport. My stay lasted 5 days and I have not travelled back to my home country. I have used my passport for my traveling and on one my return trip back, an immigration officer indicated to me that based on my green card status, I should not be holdong any national passport. This was quite a schock for me as I was under the impression that my status had been adjusted based on the lottery and not my asylum status. I am now eligible for citizenship based on 5 years of green card, I am married to a us citizen for 2 years. What should I expect from my interview? Did I make a misinterpret my change of status? I have not been able to figure out which status supercedes the other. Thank you very much for your guidance.
