Asylum is a form of protection that may be granted to people who have been persecuted or fear persecution based on their race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or identification with a certain political opinion.
People who meet these qualifications may apply for asylum if they are already in the United States or seeking admission at a port of entry, regardless of their country or origin or immigration status.
To apply for asylum in the United States, you must:
- Already be physically present in the U.S.
- File within one year of arrival in the U.S.
- Have not previously applied for and been denied asylum status
We can help you with filing your asylum application, the steps following filing, representation at your asylum interview, and any questions you have along the way.
