Under U.S. law, asylum can be granted to foreigners who can prove or establish well-founded fear of persecution if they were returned to their home country. Persecution can be based upon political opinion, race, religion, gender, nationality, or association with a particular social group. Our asylum attorneys have successfully obtained asylum for many people from different countries, and have successfully granted them legal residency in the United States.
If you fear persecution in your home country, you need to speak with an immigration attorney, Catherine R. Henin-Clark, immediately. You may qualify for legal residency to escape persecution and seek safe haven here in America. We are dedicated to helping offer protection to foreign nationals and their families and can provide compassionate legal support through this time.
Asylum cannot just be granted to anyone. Asylum can only be granted to individuals arriving in the United States or to people who are already physically in the country. If you are arriving in the United States, you may ask for asylum at the port of entry – such as an airport, sea port, or border crossing – or ask an attorney to prepare and file an I-589 Form within one year of your arrival in the United States.
In order for you to be granted asylum, you must present sufficient evidence or show proof that you were persecuted, or at risk of dangerous persecution should you return to your home country. You can also seek asylum as a defense to pending deportation hearings. Though it can be very hard to prove persecution without doubt, an experienced attorney from our firm can help your case and greatly increase your chances of being granted asylum.
If you are seeking asylum in the United States, or are trying to escape from persecution from your home country, our asylum attorneys can assist you. Helping you seek safe haven for you and your family can be the ultimate peace of mind, and we wish to provide you with the legal representation that you need at this time. From the preparation of your asylum application to the supporting of your defense by recovering the proper and sufficient evidence, you can ensure that an immigration lawyer from our firm will be there with you every step of the way.
