Asylum in the United States

Asylum in the United States

Under United States law, a “refugee” is a person that is unable or unwilling to return to their home country due to a number of reasons. According to the law, refugee status can apply to people that have a “well-founded fear of persecution” because of their religion, race, political activity, or a number of reasons that make a return home potentially unsafe, thus they seek asylum in a country that can protect them from persecution. The process of refugee resettlement can be a daunting task, and that’s where the attorneys at Rozas & Rozas can help.

We will assist you in navigating the paperwork and legal requirements necessary to being declared an asylum-seeking refugee by the U.S. government, working for you to see if you fit the law’s standard. There is no guarantee that an applicant will be admitted into the United States, but we will fight for you and do our best to ensure that you are protected as a resident of the United States.

What Does it Take to Obtain Asylum Status?

You will need to fill out Form I-589 for U.S. Asylum within a year of coming to the United States. It is a lengthy and complicated form, but we can help. An asylum officer will interview you thoroughly based on what you’ve written, so make sure you don’t answer questions different than what you’ve written down. You will also be asked questions that are not from the form, so just be prepared for a lengthy interview.

We highly recommend getting a lawyer from the very beginning of your attempt at gaining asylum, whether you’ve traveled from Honduras, Cuba, or any other country, an experienced asylum attorney at Rozas & Rozas will help you gather the right documents and prepare you to testify. A person seeking asylum faces a tough fight, but with proper legal representation, that fight will be much easier. Contact our attorneys at Rozas & Rozas Law Firm today to get started.
