Asylum Lawyer

At the Law Offices of Spektor, Spektor & Berman, we understand the importance of finding safety and protection for individuals fleeing persecution in their home countries. If you seek asylum in the United States, our team of dedicated asylum lawyers is here to provide the professional guidance and support you need throughout the asylum application process. With our expertise in immigration law, we are committed to helping you build a strong case, navigate complex procedures, and achieve the security and peace you deserve.

What is Asylum?

Asylum is a form of protection granted to individuals who have left their home countries due to persecution or a well-founded fear of persecution because of their race, religion, nationality, political opinion, or membership in a particular social group. The primary purpose of asylum is to provide refuge and safety to those facing harm or danger in their country of origin.

Understanding the eligibility criteria for asylum

Applicants must demonstrate a well-founded fear of persecution to be eligible for asylum based on one of the protected grounds mentioned earlier. This fear must be supported by credible evidence, such as personal testimony, country conditions reports, and supporting documentation. As experienced asylum lawyers, we will carefully evaluate your case, assess the strength of your claim, and guide you through gathering the necessary evidence to support your application.

The difference between affirmative and defensive asylum processes

Depending on individual circumstances, the asylum process can be pursued affirmatively or defensively. Affirmative asylum refers to applying for asylum with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) before an immigration judge becomes involved. On the other hand, defensive asylum occurs when an individual seeks asylum as a defense against removal in immigration court. Our skilled asylum lawyers have extensive experience in affirmative and defensive asylum cases and will tailor our approach to best suit your situation.
