How Do You Get Asylum?
You may be eligible for asylum if you are a refugee who has been persecuted or fears persecution based on your:
- Political views
- Membership in a particular social group
In addition to filing as an individual, you can include your spouse and any children who are under the age of 21. You can also petition to have your family brought to the United States within two years of being granted asylum. Our Forest Hills asylum attorneys can help you fill out of the paperwork and apply to keep you and your family in the U.S.
Getting a Green Card
If it has been more than a year since you were granted asylum, you may apply for a green card, the first step to becoming a U.S. citizen. Our Forest Hills asylum attorneys can help you and each of your family members apply for green cards so you can become permanent residents of the U.S.
