Do you think you qualify for asylum in the U.S.?

What is asylum status in the United States?

Asylum is a form of protection provided by the United States government to individuals that have a well-founded fear of persecution based on religion, race, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion.

How do I know if I qualify for asylum?

Although not specifically defined by U.S. immigration law, courts have held that "a threat to life or freedom on account of race, religion, nationality, political opinion or membership in a particular social group is always persecution." Some categories that may rise to the level of persecution are; severe criminal extortion or robbery, severe brutality and physical harm, coercive and forceful medical treatment (abortion), disproportionate punishment or discriminatory prosecution, severe economic persecution, and much more.

Each case is evaluated on its merits and must be analyzed individually. If you would like to know whether or not you have a strong asylum case, call me today.
