Lee & Peynado Immigration Law Group provides the legal representation you need to walk you through the process for asylum.

Asylum is defined as legal protection granted to individuals from other countries who are physically present in the United States and who are at risk for persecution if they return to their countries of origin. While an individual may not have any legal reasons to remain in the U.S., such as a marriage, college or employment, a grant of asylum will allow the person to stay in the country without fear of deportation.

At Lee & Peynado Immigration Law Group, we have extensive experience helping our clients to obtain asylum. If you or someone you know is in danger and wishes to stay in the United States to avoid a life-threatening situation or political or religious persecution, our legal team is here to help you take the steps necessary toward legally applying for asylum. Whether you are in the process of fleeing your country of origin, or have been residing here for less than a year, we know the specific steps you should take to move through the application process as swiftly and successfully as possible.

What to Expect when Applying for Asylum

Once you have arrived in the U.S., you can request the form for asylum, which is Form I-589, and file the form with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). Lee & Peynado Immigration Lawn Group can help you with the application and filing process, so you can be certain everything is completed and filed correctly. Not only can our team guide you through the process, but we can answer your questions about asylum, so you have a complete picture regarding how the process will go.

It’s important to understand that even if the USCIS turns down your application for asylum, you will not have to leave the U.S. immediately. In fact, the USCIS will send your asylum case to a federal judge, who will review your situation and determine if you will be granted asylum.

It’s true the law surrounding asylum in the United States is complex. Because the facts of each case are so unique, it helps to have a legal team on your side to organize your information to create the strongest case possible. This is where the Lee & Peynado Immigration Law Group shines. We take pride in being able to connect you with the information and services you need to complete your asylum application and filing.
