Overview

Various forms of relief exist 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.” The relief for these individuals includes asylum, withholding of removal, protection against torture (under the Convention Against Torture (CAT)), Temporary Protected Status (TPS) and refugee protection.

 

HOUSTON ASYLUM AND REFUGEE ATTORNEYS

At the Houston immigration law firm of Adan G. Vega & Associates, our asylum lawyers have extensive and ample experience with asylum applications. Our firm lawyers focus exclusively on immigration law, and we have demonstrated first and foremost our dedication to our clients’ needs. Our asylum lawyers also have a deep understanding of the requirements and facts that must be proven for a successful asylum or refugee application.

Any questions about making an asylum application as a foreign national with protected status as a member of a persecuted group should be explored with a qualified immigration attorney. A consultation with an experienced attorney who is a Board Certified Immigration Specialist can determine whether an asylum application might successfully block the deportation of yourself or a family member.  We encourage you to schedule a consultation with one of the asylum lawyers at Adan G. Vega & Associates, PLLC. Call our Houston, Texas law office at 713.527.9606 or contact us by email.

 

ASYLUM IN THE U. S.

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 law firm asylum lawyers are knowledgeable and can assist you in preparing you case with the appropriate documentation and factual evidence that can help increase your chance of success in asylum and related cases.
