Resolving Immigration ProblemsIn An Honest & Responsible Manner

Seeking asylum may pave the way to citizenship in America

On Behalf of | Feb 24, 2021 | Asylum

Do you suffer from religious persecution or mistreatment in your country of origin? Do you fear for your life or expect to be tortured if you remain in your nation? If you answered yes, then seeking asylum could be your path to eventual citizenship in the U.S.

Asylees have rights in the country!

According to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) website, those granted asylum in American enjoy many rights. Some of these include:

  • The right to live and work anywhere in the nation, including California
  • The right to get a driver’s license
  • The right to attend public school
  • The right to leave and then return to the nation
  • The right to get an unrestricted Social Security card
  • The right to petition to bring family members to join you in America

Best of all, asylees have the right to apply for permanent American citizenship after only one year of living in the country.

How an attorney can help

You must prove that you need and deserve asylum before it can be granted to you. We have found that most immigrants benefit from attorney guidance when seeking asylum. The right legal advocate can help you collect evidence to strengthen your asylum application.

Another critical role a lawyer fills involves finding situations like yours in which petitioners have received asylum in the past. Presenting these cases in a formal setting can show courts why you deserve status as an asylee. Legal representation also ensures that your rights remain protected at all stages of your case.
