Asylum for Immigrants in New York City

Queens Immigration Attorney

In certain circumstances, the United States may grant asylum to individuals who are facing persecution in their home country. If you have been threatened with, or have been the victim of, persecution due to your race, ethnicity, religion, membership in a specific social group, or political affiliations or beliefs, you may qualify for refugee status. Contact a Queens immigration attorney right away, as your application for asylum must be made within one year of your entry into the United States. If you are granted asylum, you will hold your immigration status indefinitely. Work authorization, however, must be renewed annually, and immediate family members may also be eligible but will need to be included in the original petition.

Petitions for asylum involve intensive preparation and paperwork. Many documents and evidence are required, which may be somewhat difficult to obtain. These include personal documents, medical records, police reports and documents proving the persecution. These may include such things as reports from human rights organizations or newspaper articles as well as verification of your membership in the relevant asylum class. The process also involves an interview with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS).

We represent individuals throughout Queens, Brooklyn, The Bronx, Manhattan, Rockland County and Westchester County.
