I'm 86 years old, my daughter who is U.S Citizen filed a petition for alien relative on my name, the petition was approved, now I'm afraid to come back to my country of origin, can I adjust my status to asylum?

Thanks.

Why is asylum better than adjustment of status to greencard? Did you file a I-485 or just the petition alone? Where are you now?

I believe fling for asylum is free otherwise it costs $985 plus biometrics if needed.

That's true, but one is pretty much guaranteed if the circumstances are right and the other is a huge gamble.

It's precisely because it's pretty much guaranteed that he/she is considering the asylum. At his/her age (86), and with approved I-130 from immediate relative, the asylum case is not so huge a gamble but would take longer (averaging about two years now). And if it is denied, the $985 is fallback option. Frankly, if I were OP, I'd go for the quicker route which is AOS. More than money, time is of the essence here.

P.S. Don't mean to sound ageist but 86 is towards the (practical) bottom of the actuarial life table.
