New York Asylum Lawyers

With the world in turmoil, many people elect to come to the U.S. For this reason the USCIS operates an extensive asylum plan. The U.S. strongly desires to protect persons from danger if they should return to their home country. But there is an equal desire to ensure that applications are serious, and that people are not using asylum as a convenient way to achieve permanent resident status.

We Provide Strength When You Are Under Attack

Any person who is currently in the U.S., who expresses a fear of persecution on account of race, religion, nationality, political opinion, or membership in a particular social group, may apply for asylum. Some of these categories are unambiguous; others are more subjective, and may require a ruling in immigration court.

Once individuals are granted asylum, they are usually able to apply for an adjustment of status to permanent legal resident (green card).
