The San Francisco Asylum Office has clarified their new policy regarding the presence of attorneys at Credible and Reasonable Fear Interviews (CFI/RFI). Most interviews will now be conducted by phone. Both the asylum officer and interpreter will appear by phone and if an attorney is representing the applicant, the attorney must also appear by phone. In other words, the Asylum Office will not allow the attorney to be in the room with the applicant during the interview. The only exception will be when the asylum officer is also physically present.
