Why Seek Asylum?
An asylum is a form of protection granted to individuals who have fled their home country due to persecution or a well-founded fear of persecution based on their race, religion, nationality, political opinion, or membership in a particular social group. It offers an opportunity for safety and the ability to start a new life free from fear and harm.
Grounds for Asylum:
To be eligible for asylum, you must demonstrate that you meet the legal definition of a refugee and that you are not barred from asylum for any of the reasons listed in section 208 of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). The grounds for asylum can include, but are not limited to:
- Race: If you are being targeted or persecuted due to your race, such as facing discrimination, violence, or other forms of harm based on your racial background.
- Religion: If your religious beliefs or practices are the cause of persecution or threats, including instances of religious intolerance, discrimination, or violence.
- Nationality: If you are facing persecution due to your nationality or membership in a particular nation, which can manifest as targeted violence, discrimination, or other forms of harm.
- Political Opinion: If you are being persecuted or face harm because of your political beliefs, affiliations, or activities, including cases where individuals are targeted for expressing dissent or challenging the ruling regime.
- Membership in a Particular Social Group: If you belong to a specific social group that is being targeted for persecution, such as based on gender, sexual orientation, or other defining characteristics.
Case Evaluation: Our attorneys offer thorough and personalized case evaluations to assess your eligibility for asylum based on the grounds mentioned above. They will carefully review your circumstances, gather supporting evidence, and provide honest and reliable advice regarding your chances of success.
Application Preparation: Our skilled attorneys will assist you in preparing a comprehensive asylum application, ensuring that all required forms and supporting documentation are completed accurately and submitted within the specified deadlines.

Representation: Our attorneys will represent you throughout the asylum process, whether it involves interviews with immigration officers, hearings before immigration judges, or appeals before higher authorities. They will advocate for your rights, present persuasive arguments, and effectively challenge any adverse decisions or incorrect interpretations of the law.
Evidence Collection: Building a strong asylum case requires gathering relevant evidence specific to the grounds for your claim. Our attorneys will work diligently to collect and present compelling evidence that strengthens your case and bolsters your chances of a favorable outcome.
Appeals and Review: If your asylum application is denied, our attorneys can assist you in appealing the decision and pursuing further legal avenues.
