Political Asylum


Political Asylum

Asylum provides legal protection to those people who are living in the US already and are unable to return to their home country because of different reasons such as the fear of persecution associated with religion, race, membership, sexual orientation, nationality and political opinion.

Once you are granted political asylum, the immigrant can live as well as work in the US for one year. After a year, they can apply for permanent citizenship in the US. However, it is easier said than done. The application process for asylum status is complex involving several guidelines and requirements to fulfill. This is why it is advisable to work with a seasoned immigration attorney. 

At the Law Office of Kevork Adanas, P.C., our immigration lawyer can answer all your questions and provide you with quality guidance helping you navigate through the process smoothly and with the best chance of success.

When applying for asylum status, it can often be challenging to determine what the right evidence may be to support the claim and how to present it to the immigration officials. However, with our knowledgeable and reliable lawyer by your side, you be assured that we will build your case for asylum and collect and present the evidence to ensure success. Our New Jersey immigration attorney is very experienced in this field and thus, can help you prepare and present your case effectively.

In general, to be granted asylum status you must either demonstrate that you have suffered persecution in the past or have a well-founded fear that it will happen if you go back. In previous scenarios documents, like medical records, news reports, affidavits, personal statements and organizational membership documentation may be strong pieces of evidence to prove your case. 

Contact us today to discuss your case. Our lawyer will evaluate your situation to determine the best course of action. In some situations especially if one year has passed from the date of your entry to the US, you may not be able to apply for asylum. In such a scenario, our lawyer can guide you and help you apply for withholding of removal under the convention against torture. Let us review your case to help you make the best decision and ensure that you can continue to live and work in the United States peacefully and legally. Call today at 201-592-9190.
