Asylum status could be your best option for avoiding dangerous persecution in your home country. However, obtaining asylum status is not always easy. Applicants are denied every year, including for avoidable mistakes that were made in the application process.
An asylum lawyer in Tolleson could help you navigate this complex process. You generally have a year from the date you entered the country to apply for asylum, and we can ensure your application meets all of the requirements under federal law.
Not everyone applies for asylum within a year of entering the country. In fact, some people only seek this status when they are facing the threat of deportation and removal from the country. This is known as defensive asylum.
A defensive asylum claim could be a viable defense in a deportation case. If you and your attorneys can show that you meet the criteria for asylum, you could not only avoid removal but also secure lawful residency status in the U.S.
Due to how risky returning to your own country is, the pursuit of asylum status is vital for your wellbeing. The attorneys of Diamondback Legal understand what is stake, and we are ready to fight on your behalf. Call right away to schedule a confidential consultation with a Tolleson asylum lawyer.
