There are several forms of relief for those persons who are unable or unwilling to return to their home country because of a “well-founded fear of persecution on account of race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion.” These are asylum, withholding of removal, protection against torture (under the Convention Against Torture (CAT)), Temporary Protected Status (TPS) and refugee protection.
At the Los Angeles immigration law firm of Ronzio & Associates, our asylum lawyers have extensive experience with asylum applications. As lawyers who focus exclusively on immigration law, we have demonstrated dedication to our clients’ needs. Our asylum lawyers also have deep understanding of the facts that must be proven for a successful asylum or refugee application.
Do you have questions about making an asylum application as a foreign national with protected status as a member of a persecuted group? Or, do you have questions about whether an asylum application might successfully block the deportation of yourself of a family member? We encourage you to schedule a free consultation with one of the asylum lawyers at Ronzio & Associates. Call our Los Angeles, California, office toll free at 866.441.1458 or contact us by email.
The Refugee Act of 1980 established procedures for those foreign nationals physically present in the U.S. seeking asylum. Asylum applications may be submitted affirmatively to an asylum office within one year after the person’s entry in the U.S. This one-year time limit can only be overcome by a showing of changed circumstances that materially affect the person’s eligibility or extraordinary circumstances regarding the delay in filing the application. Additionally, an applicant may pursue his/her request for asylum before an immigration judge.
Our asylum lawyers know what kind of factual evidence is persuasive in asylum and related cases, and we help our asylum clients make strong applications with a good chance of success.
We represent clients worldwide and offer free consultations, either by telephone or at our Los Angeles office. To make an appointment to talk privately with one of our attorneys, call toll free at 866.441.1458 or contact us online.
