How safe is nunc pro tunc petitiion?
Question Details: I got my derivative asylum in 2009 with my wife as the primary asylee. But we got divorced before I could qualify to apply for permanent residency in 2010. Is it safe for me at this point to apply for nunc pro tunc? How likely is it that I will get turned down and get deported?
A "nunc pro tunc" petition which means "now for then" in Latin is a petition in your situation seeking the hearing officer to go back in time to give you permanent residency based upon a prior effective date.
There is nothing safe or unsafe about such a petition in and of itself. The dating period is important in situations where a person wants as old of a date for an order under given circumstances.
As to the chances of you getting turned down on the petition and deported, I simply cannot answer such in that you have not given a factual basis for your requested asylum petition for this country.
