Washington DC Asylum Law Firm

Asylum is the immigration status afforded to a person entering the United States when he or she has a reasonable fear of persecution if forced to return to their country of residence. 

Our law firm is available to answer your questions and provide expert representation.  

In order to obtain asylum, an individual must have been in the United States for less than one year. Once asylum is granted, an individual may immediately begin to work. This is so because additional employment authorization is not required for an asylee to work in the United States.

In addition, your immediate family members may also be eligible for asylum status, provided that they were included in the original asylum application.  This additional benefit is conferred upon family members even if the other family members are not actually in the United States when the application is submitted.

In order to apply, you must provide specific information to the government.  Our office can help you with the following:

  • We will help you identify and collect all relevant documentation. 

  • We will meet with you to prepare for the interview session at the United States Immigration Service.

  • We will attend the interview with you at the United States Immigration Service.
