Refugees & Asylum
Guidance for Asylum Seekers
Because of ongoing conflicts, the United Nations estimates that there are 22.5 million refugees across the world. Many want to make their way to the United States to establish a new, safe life for themselves and their families.Whether you are already here or want to come to the U.S., we can help you understand your rights and options and give you a realistic assessment of your chances of receiving asylum.
Don’t Waste Any Time
You only have one year to file for asylum after arriving in the United States. Failure to do so could lead to deportation. If your spouse or children (under the age of 21) are also in the United States with you, you can include them in your filing.
Our attorneys have extensive experience dealing with all of the paperwork associated with gaining entry to the U.S. and gaining asylum. It’s important to have a qualified professional review your case, fill out the appropriate forms, and guide you through the asylum seeking process.
