If you are in the United States and you are afraid to return to your country of citizenship or the country where you have been living, you should meet with a lawyer to see if you are eligible to apply for asylum.
Applying for asylum is a very complicated process. You should not apply on your own. Family members and friends may have good intentions, but they generally will not understand the complex legal issues involved in an asylum application. Applicants who are represented by an immigration lawyer are more likely to be
successful than applicants who are not.

Successful asylum applications need to show that the applicant's fear of return is based on certain protected grounds that are defined in U.S. law. The U.S. government must determine that the applicant can be classified as a refugee.

An asylum applicant must provide evidence to support the case and must be prepared to testify in front of a USCIS officer or an Immigration Judge.

Our firm has helps people from many different countries around the world to apply for asylum. We are prepared to represent you in your asylum claim in front of USCIS and also in Immigration Court.
