Justice for You
The asylum application may be submitted abroad at a port of entry or within the United States.
The applicant will be asked to prove past persecution or fear of future persecution due to his or her race, religion, nationality, and / or membership in a particular social group or political opinion. The requirements are constantly being altered and cases are difficult to win. Substantial evidence, documentation and preparation are needed to convince immigration that a case has merit.
If denied, an asylum applicant will be placed in deportation proceedings and must appear before a judge in immigration court. Legal advice from a qualified attorney is very important in these cases.
