Are you an Asylum seeker?

Are you an Asylum seeker?

An asylum seeker should always exercise caution when applying for asylum. Asylum law is among the most swiftly evolving and complex areas of immigration law. Thus, it is imperative that the individual proceed with the advice of a licensed and experienced immigration attorney.

If you have a well-founded fear of returning to your home country, contact us to determine if you are eligible for legal status based on this fear. Individuals already physically present in the United States may apply for asylum provided that the individual is unable or unwilling to return to his or her native country due to a well-founded fear of persecution or because the person’s life or freedom are at risk.

Our office treats all clients with compassion and respect. Further, we recognize that asylum seekers have often experienced tragic, threatening, and incomprehensible events.  Our office has knowledge of the latest asylum-related court decisions in the Chicagoland region, as well as the most up-to-date information regarding the conditions in your home country, which can be used to reinforce your case.

If you fear returning to your home country, contact our experienced Chicagoland asylum lawyer to discuss your case.
