Who may qualify for asylum status?
Asylum status can be granted to an immigrant who can demonstrate that he or she has a well-founded fear of persecution, in the past or in the future, in his or her country on the basis of:
Particular social groups (including family)
How is asylum status granted?
Asylum is granted at the discretion of the immigration hearing officer or court, based on their analysis of various factors. The hearing officer or court will question any applicant for asylum for details about how he or she has been persecuted or believes he or she will be persecuted if returned to the home country.
Asylum is not granted lightly, and usually only those petitions that have substantial supporting documentation and testimony are granted by hearing officers or courts. We ensure that you stand on firm legal ground right from the start.
Furthermore, an attorney can request a hearing before an immigration judge if the asylum officer denies your application. A lawyer can also appeal an adverse ruling by an immigration judge to the courts.
