In many parts of the world, persecution is a daily reality. There are millions of people who are seeking a way to relocate to a place of safety and freedom.

Our legal professionals have 60 years of combined legal experience, which demonstrates that our firm has the knowledge and skills to aggressively and effectively advocate on your behalf.
Asylum can be granted to people fleeing oppression in their home country. Those who wish to apply for asylum must be physically present in the U.S. at the time of the request. They must also be able to prove that they have a credible fear of returning to their country of residence.
You may apply for asylum if you can show that you have suffered persecution or fear persecution on the basis of:
- Political opinion
- Social group affiliations
Applying for Asylum
If you are eligible for asylum, you may apply by filing Form I-589, Application for Asylum and for Withholding of Removal. There is no fee for applying, but this application must be submitted within one year of your arrival to the United States. You also have the opportunity to apply for your spouse or your children who are with you in the U.S. Any children included on your application must be under 21 years of age and unmarried.
Should you be granted asylum, you will be allowed to remain in the U.S. legally without fear of deportation. Other benefits include eligibility for work and permanent residency status, as well as the opportunity to apply for U.S. citizenship.
