Immigration Asylum Lawyer

Are you a refugee facing persecution in your country?

If you are a refugee to the United States and have either faced past persecution or will face future persecution in your country, there is a good probability that you may qualify for political asylum. Being granted asylum requires a large amount of evidence in your favor, and it is often a complex and difficult process. Navigate the process with help of an experienced immigration attorney to maximize your chances of success. If you are unable or unwilling to return to your home country based on events or circumstances there, we are ready to guide you through the asylum process and fight for the outcome you need.

To apply for political asylum, you must show evidence of persecution or fear of persecution based on one of these grounds:

  • Race
  • Religion
  • National origin
  • Membership in a certain social group
  • Political opinion

How to Apply for Asylum in the United States

The actual method and location that you apply for asylum varies depending on your individual set of circumstances. In fact, political asylum may be granted to those both physically present in the United States, as well as those who are arriving. However, there is a statute of limitations, and you must apply within one year of your arrival in the country. If circumstances have changed after this one year period is up or if extraordinary circumstances occur, there are still ways to apply for asylum. Please do keep in mind that the law allows you to apply for this status even if you are in the United States illegally.
