Asylum Petition- Protection for the Endangered
What is an asylum petition exactly?
Refugee status and asylum status are reserved for those individuals that believe they are in danger in their own home country. Handling
refugee status and asylum petitions competently can literally have a life-altering effect on the individual who is living in fear of returning to his or her home country. The attorneys at LawCenter have been assisting those facing persecution successfully and have a combined experience of over 22 years. Individuals that are in the United States and have a well-founded fear of returning home due to his or her religion, race, nationality, membership in a social group, political opinion or sexual orientation may apply for asylum.
If an individual still resides in his or her home country and is living in fear of political or another type of persecution, he or she may be eligible for refugee immigration status. In 2002, the department in charge of overseeing immigration issues such as refugee asylum status was the Immigration and Naturalization Service. After Congress passed the Homeland Security Act, the power was transferred to the Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services. At
LawCenter PLC, we understand how important obtaining asylum status is to our clients and that is why we diligently work towards gaining asylum status swiftly. It is important that the attorney that you hire is experienced and up to date on all immigration issues. Please speak with our legal team today, we are happy to assist you.
Seeking Safety Within U.S. Borders
If you are seeking asylum out of well-founded fear of persecution in your home country, political asylum must be applied for before you have been in the country for one year. If you are given asylum, you may be eligible for a green card after holding asylum status for one year. Our attorneys care about what happens to our clients and when it is not possible for them to obtain asylum status, they ensure that every other option is inspected thoroughly such as temporary haven and amnesty status.
