Asylum law is complex and ever evolving. It is very important to have a lawyer to help guide you through the process.
There are two requirements for asylum. You must show that
You are unable or unwilling to return to your home country because you have been persecuted in the past or have a well-founded fear that you will be persecuted in the future if you return; and
The reason you were persecuted or will be persecuted in the future is based on at least one of five protected grounds. (Race, Religion, Nationality, Political Opinion, or Membership in a Particular Social Group).
While most applicants can prove persecution, many fall short of proving that the reason for the persecution was because the applicant was part of one of these protected groups. This is why having an attorney is crucial in the asylum process. Our attorneys are here to help you navigate the complexities of asylum law.
