Do You Qualify For Asylum?

Political asylum is meant to protect people victimized by persecution because of:

  • Race
  • Gender
  • Religion
  • Nationality
  • Political opinion or party
  • membership
  • Group membership

If you or a loved one is seeking asylum, it is important to know that you can apply if you are in the United States illegally or are here on an expired visa. You do not need to stop at a border crossing or otherwise notify the country beforehand.

Understanding The Basic Process

Typically, you must file for asylum within a year of entering the United States, but exceptions are often possible. Your application must include evidence of your situation, and the courts can be very particular. Our attorneys can help you demonstrate the validity of your fears of persecution and get you the asylum you need. We have the resources and experience to take your case to immigration court, the Board of Immigration Appeals, or any federal appellate court. Once you get asylum, you can then apply for a green card (aka permanent residency) and, eventually, citizenship.

Providing Humanitarian Relief For Asylum Seekers

Asylum protections include both the legal status that allows you to remain in the United States as well as access to a wide network of social support systems that can help you adjust to life here. This can include substantial help with housing, education, work training and more.
