Cleveland Asylum Attorneys
Trusted & Experienced Legal Representation
If you are currently facing persecution in your home country, you may be eligible to seek asylum in the United States. Whether you are here legally on a visa or are currently in the country illegally, it is important that you retain the services of a Cleveland immigration lawyer right away.
When Could I Be Eligible to Seek Asylum?
There are a number of different circumstances that allow you to seek asylum in the United States, but the bottom line is if you have faced persecution in your home country or have been threatened, you may be eligible. To claim asylum, you have to prove the persecution you are experiencing or are in fear of. An experienced attorney can assist you to navigate the complex process and get you through the interviews and application documents.
Getting You Through the Process
Once you have gone through the application process, submitted it, and had your interview, a decision will be granted. A couple of weeks later you can pick up the decision which says that asylum is recommended or not. If your application is denied and you were not here legally, you may be facing proceedings for removal.
What are the Grounds of Persecution for Asylum Applicants?
The grounds for persecution for asylum applicants are:
- Religious beliefs
- Political stance
- Political opinion
- Affiliation in a specific social group
Can I Seek Asylum if I am in the US Illegally?
Yes, you seek asylum even if you are in the US illegally. Asylum is intended for immigrants who are currently in the U.S. and who feel that they will face persecution or have faced persecution in their home country.
