Our immigration lawyers are here to help with your asylum case.
At Northwest Immigration & Criminal Defense LLP we represent individuals who have chosen to stay in the United States because they cannot return home. If you fear persecution in your home country because of your religious beliefs, race, ethnicity, political opinions, nationality, or membership in a group, you may have an asylum claim. Unfortunately, not all fears one may have about returning to his or her home country will allow that person to obtain asylum in the United States. It is very important that you talk with an immigration attorney before trying to apply for asylum.

The process of obtaining asylum in the United States is long and complex. There are time limits (usually, an asylum application must be filed within one year of entering the United States), possible immigration court hearings, and evidentiary requirements. Depending on the case, an asylum application must be filed with either USCIS or the immigration court. It is also very important that a potential asylee frame the application using the specific language of the United States' asylum statutes. This is where we can do our best work for you. In our initial consultation Northwest Immigration & Criminal Defense immigration lawyers will take the time necessary to understand every aspect of your case and tell you whether you have a good chance of obtaining asylum.
