Orlando Asylum Attorney

Legal Assistance for Asylum Seekers in Orlando

The United States is a top destination for immigrants from countries around the world, and one route for gaining lawful residence here is through asylum. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) grants asylum to tens of thousands of people every year who successfully complete Form I-589, "Application for Asylum and for Withholding of Removal" and who qualify for this status. It is reserved for those who can prove that they either have suffered persecution or have reason to believe that they will be persecuted if they are made to return to their country of origin. Grounds for asylum include persecution based on religion, race, political views, nationality and membership in a particular social group. It is necessary to file for asylum within one year of arrival in this country.

It is necessary to apply for a work visa separately from the asylum application in order to be legally employed during the approval process. Upon approval for asylum, the asylee is granted the right to work legally. A year after receiving asylum, it is possible to apply for a green card to gain full permanent resident status, which is a path for seeking United States citizenship. Because such a large number of people seek asylum in the United States, it can be difficult to successfully apply. It is important to have an aggressive Orlando immigration attorney by your side who can make a strong and persuasive argument of the merits of the case in order to convince the authorities to approve the request.
