Fighting for Immigrants Seeking Asylum Protection

Those who have suffered human rights violations—such as persecution or the threat of persecution based on race, religion, nationality, political opinion, or membership in a certain group—may seek protection from the U.S. government. If you have entered the U.S., you will need to seek asylum. If you are currently outside this country, you will need to seek refugee status. Meeting the requirements for asylum and refugee status can be difficult and extensive, which is why you will need the help of our asylum lawyer in The Woodlands.

Asylum & Refugee Status

In order to achieve the status of asylum, you will have to meet the qualifications. If you were persecuted in your home country, you will have to show that to the court. Persecution can occur in many forms but its general definition involves being harmed or having your life or freedom threatened.

Examples of persecution may include:

  • Receiving death threats
  • Being imprisoned
  • Torture
  • Having your family, home, or privacy interfered with
  • Discrimination
  • Continuous surveillance

Persecution or its threat may come from various sources besides the government, such as guerillas or other groups that the government has been unable to control. In all cases, the persecution must be political or social. Threats from a criminal network, someone who holds a grudge against you, or other personal situations do not qualify for asylum or refugee status.

Find out if you qualify for asylum or refugee status by contacting our asylum lawyer in The Woodlands at (346) 239-8747.
