Helping Immigrants for over 25 Years
Asylum (aka Political Asylum), provides relief to foreigners who are likely to suffer persecution based on protected grounds if returned to their home country. 8 U.S.C. § 1158.
You cannot apply for it while outside the US; you can apply for it at a US border check.
We help clients who are already inside the US file an affirmative asylum claim with USCIS.
Our immigration legal team has helped thousands of families with even the most complex immigration legal matters. We approach our work with the highest ethical standards.
An asylum claim must normally be filed within one year after the most recent entry to the US. A successful asylum claim leads to a green card and permanent residency in the US.
A protected ground is something an individual either cannot or should not change about themselves. They are include the following:
- Political opinion
- Membership of a particular social group (PSG)
These are the only grounds upon which a person may seek asylum in the United States.
Derivative asylum is possible for spouses and minor dependent children of successful asylum applicants.
