Helping You Make the Best Case to Stay Here
We can help if you apply for political asylum if you are from another country and currently reside in the United States. Asylum is designed to help people unable or unwilling to return to their home country due to persecution or a well-founded fear of persecution. Persecution may result from prejudice based on race, religion, nationality, political opinion, gender or membership in a particular social group. If you are granted asylum, you will be allowed to live and work in the United States. You also will be able to apply for permanent status one year after you are granted asylum. If your request for asylum is denied you will be referred for deportation proceedings.
