It’s not easy to win an asylum case. So you must approach it correctly and in the best possible way. If you are interested in applying for Political Asylum in the United States consult us and avoid making mistakes.

Moreover, if the asylum petition is found to be frivolous, you will never be able to return to the United States.

Reasons to apply for Asylum in the United States

  • Special Immigrant Juveniles (SIJ) Program for unmarried children and youth under the age of 21 who suffer abuse, neglect or abandonment.

Affirmative Process Requirements  

  • To apply for political asylum you must be physically in the United States or at one of its borders. Asylum may be requested upon arrival at a port of entry (airport, port or land border) or while physically within the US.
  • In this case it does not matter how you entered or the legal status.
  • After your arrival in the United States, you must apply within one year of your last entry into the country.
  • Exceptional or Changing Circumstances: : If an alien entered more than 365 days ago and there is a regime change in your home country that puts you at risk if you return, you can then apply for asylum.

Defensive process requirements

In the defensive asylum procedure, the foreigner is subject to deportation or removal proceedings.

It is essential to have the advice of an immigration attorney in these cases.
