Refugee Status or Asylum may be granted to people who have been persecuted or fear they will be persecuted on account of race, religion, nationality, and/or membership in a particular social group or political opinion.
An Affimative Asylum petition must generally be filed within one year of applicant’s arrival to the US. If you are intending to file an asylum case, please contact our office as soon as possible. We will review your case and facts and assist you in determining the strength of your case and the options available to you.
If USCIS grants your asylum case, you are eligible to apply for a green card one year after your asylum was approved.
