Refugee/Asylum Status Immigration Law

Refugee/Asylum Status Legal Issues

Refugee Status:

Persons who have fear of persecution because of their race, religion, nationality, group membership, or political opinion may be eligible for asylum or refugee status. Refugees may apply for refugee status at a United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) office. The USCIS will review documents and give refugees documents for entering the U.S.

Consequences of Refugee Status:

It is important to apply for refugee status very soon after entry to the U.S. The petition/application should be completed without errors or misstatements so that the application process does not delay. The application should be filed within one year of entering the U.S. The evidence required for the application is extensive and sometimes difficult to obtain.

What an Immigration Lawyer can do for you:

An immigration lawyer can discuss an appropriate strategy for helping you attain a refugee status. An immigration lawyer can help you prove eligibility for asylum and file the appropriate applications for you so that your files are ready to appear in court. If you have applied late and you have been notified of removal, an immigration attorney can help you appeal the asylum application.
