Asylum

Sometimes people come to the United States to seek a better life and sometimes people come because they think they have no choice. For one reason or another, they feel unsafe in their home country. The danger can sometimes be so severe that they are afraid they will suffer bodily harm, and possibly even death, if they were to return to their homeland.

In such cases, you may be eligible to file for asylum and remain in the United States permanently. You can file for asylum in different ways — an affirmative asylum petition that needs to be filed with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service or Withholding of Removal and Convention Against Torture (CAT), which needs to be filed and argued in front of the immigration judge when in deportation or removal proceedings.

Asylum petitions can be complicated and hiring an attorney can significantly increase your chances of being approved. Our immigration lawyers are highly experienced when it comes to filing for asylum and they can determine whether you are eligible for any or all of these types of asylum petitions at the initial consultation.

We focus on all types of asylum cases, including the following:

  • Affirmative Asylum Petitions to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service
