If you are a refugee from another country seeking asylum in the United States for fear of persecution in your home country, you need to hire an experienced immigration attorney who is dedicated to assisting you with your delicate circumstances.

We are dedicated in clearing a path of asylum under our flag for refugees who need such protection and are in fear of persecution.
What Is Asylum Law?
Asylum is an option that certain foreign individuals in the United States may utilize to legally remain in the country due to reasons related to their native country, such as past persecution or being in the fear of current or future persecution. These individuals may apply for asylum either by asking for asylum at the point of entry into the U.S. or filing an application within one year of arrival.
Asylum may not be granted if the individual has:
- Previously been denied asylum.
- Failed to apply for asylum within one year of arrival in to the U.S.
- If they can be relocated to a different county that has been deemed safe.
At Legalize Me, our experienced immigration lawyers look at all of your options to determine whether asylum is a viable in your case. If we determine that it is, we will take all the necessary steps to get you asylum and enable you to legally reside in the United States.
Eligibility for Asylum
If you came to the United States because you suffered past persecution or have a “well-founded fear of persecution” in your native homeland, you may be granted asylum on a discretionary basis.
