San Diego Political Asylum Lawyer
Political Asylum Attorney in San Diego
People across the world enter the United States in order to escape unstable or dangerous situations. Asylum is a means for people who face prosecution in other countries to remain in the United States. An application for asylum must meet a number of specific requirements. If you have entered the United States in order to leave a dangerous environment, the outcome of your asylum application matters a great deal.
In order to obtain asylum, you must show that you have a “well-founded fear of persecution” or have suffered persecution in the past. This persecution must be based on any of the following grounds: race, religion, nationality, membership in particular social group or political opinion.
Our firm has successfully obtained political asylum for many applicants. You must file for asylum within one year of entering the United States. Asylum is ultimately at the discretion of the immigration judge. Our attorneys are adept at gathering evidence, preparing testimonies and making persuasive cases for people seeking asylum.
If your application is granted, you will receive a grant of asylum and then, after one year in asylum status, you may apply for green card. Even if your application for asylum is denied, you may still have potential remedies, including withholding of removal.
