Resolving Immigration Problems
In An Honest & Responsible Manner

Seeking asylum is not an easy or fast process, but is achievable

Numerous immigrants come to California, or other states, looking for a refuge from their native country. While making the claim for asylum may seem easy enough, the process of actually being granted this status can be quite challenging to navigate alone. One family’s road to achieving asylum for their young daughters is certainly a story of hope for others who may find themselves in a similar situation.

A family currently living in another state finally achieved the immigration status for their three daughters that they have been anxiously awaiting. One member of the family had entered the country in 2006 as a refugee and later obtained his citizenship, which, in turn, allowed him to obtain green cards for his parents. Obtaining the same status for his siblings, on the other hand, was not as easy. While they were allowed to enter the country, their visas did eventually expire, and deportation was a very real threat.

Sadly, this family had reportedly been given bad information regarding applying for asylum and missed the required deadline. As such, these three girls, ages 12 to 18, were facing the prospect of being returned to their native country, where civil unrest is a real concern. With the help of an immigration attorney and others who supported their cause, this family won their appeal of the deportation decision, and the three girls were granted asylum. Receiving this status will allow each of these young women to eventually apply for permanent residency.

The road to asylum can be filled with tension and anxiety. Immigrants in California can seek assistance to help in their goal of achieving this status. While applying for asylum doesn’t guarantee that it will be granted, taking the proper steps and ensuring that all required information is provided and accurate can certainly be beneficial in achieving positive results.
