The interview will be conducted in a non-adversarial manner; it is not a court hearing.  If you have both a NACARA and asylum application pending with USCIS, USCIS normally will conduct a NACARA interview first.  If you are granted NACARA relief, you will be given the option of withdrawing your asylum application.  In order to make this decision, you may wish to talk with someone experienced with immigration matters to help you decide what to do.  If you decide not to withdraw your asylum application, USCIS will schedule you for an asylum interview.
