The unfortunate reality is that many people living outside of the United States are in constant fear of persecution. When this persecution is based on things like their religious or political beliefs, the asylum system could provide an answer.
When you qualify for asylum, you have the opportunity to live and work in the United States when you would not otherwise be able to. This means you could remain in the country legally without going through the visa application process.
At Diamondback Legal, we understand that asylum requests are often a matter of life and death. You deserve legal counsel that treats your case with care it deserves. Our firm is experienced with handling asylum requests, and we look forward to putting that experience to work for you.
There are different ways to apply for asylum in the U.S. While you must be located in the country to apply, not everyone does so the moment they enter the country. In fact, you have a year from the date that you enter to apply.
It is also worth noting that your asylum case could still be successful even if you miss this deadline. Many people pursue “defensive asylum,” which means they raise the asylum request as a defense in deportation proceedings. Our firm could help you avoid deportation and removal through a successful asylum petition.
