Knowing when and how to apply for immigration asylum can be difficult, particularly if you have recently fled a dangerous situation in your home country. The Xavier A. Mendez law firm’s asylum attorneys will assist you.
Those granted asylum may apply to remain in the United States indefinitely and obtain a path to citizenship, as well as to bring their spouse and children with them.
A person who was given asylum, called an asylee, will have the other benefits:
You must meet the criteria of a refugee to be eligible for asylum or refugee status under US law.
One of the most challenging aspects of successfully applying for asylum or refugee status is proving the link between the persecution and one of these five grounds—race, religion, nationality, political opinion, and social group membership, especially when you must prove that one of the five grounds was or would be a “central reason” for your persecution.
This means demonstrating that you have either been a victim of persecution in the past or that you have a well-founded fear (both subjective and objective reasonable fear) of persecution in the future. You must prove that you were persecuted in your home country or last country of residence if you were persecuted in the past.
We know that this could still be a little troubling for others, but you can trust the immigration lawyers from Xavier A. Mendez Law Firm to handle your case carefully.
