If you’re seeking asylum in the United States, you are on a courageous journey to pursue safety and freedom. If you’re feeling lost or overwhelmed by the legal process, though, your hope of having a future here may be quickly fading. Ortega Law Group is here to empower you to navigate this complex experience with confidence and the information you need to reach a successful resolution.

To be eligible for asylum in the U.S., a person must meet the definition of a refugee as established in the Immigration and Naturalization Act, which states that they live in fear of persecution due to their race, religion, nationality, political ideology, or inclusion in a certain social group within their native country. If you are unsure of whether or not you meet this standard, our lead Chandler asylum lawyer can sit down with you to reach a conclusion; if you are not a candidate for asylum, we will help you explore other options for gaining legal immigrant status.

We have helped countless immigrants achieve asylum and stay up-to-date on the ever-changing immigration laws in the U.S. Ortega Law Group can ensure that each step of the process is handled correctly, that no costly mistakes in your paperwork put your case in jeopardy, that your rights remain protected, and if necessary, we will defend your interests to the USCIS.

Call today to schedule your free initial consultation and discover your next steps.

It’s Important To Note That Asylum Is Not The Same As Having Temporary Protected Status (TPS).

Temporary Protected Status (TPS) and asylum are both forms of humanitarian immigration relief offered by the United States to individuals facing unsafe conditions in their home countries, but they differ in important ways, so it is crucial that you allow our Chandler asylum lawyer to help you choose the best legal route based on your specific circumstances.

TPS is a temporary status granted to eligible individuals from designated countries experiencing ongoing armed conflict, environmental disasters, or other extraordinary conditions. TPS allows individuals to live and work legally in the U.S. for a limited period, but it does not provide a pathway to permanent residency or citizenship.

On the other hand, asylum is a form of protection for individuals who have suffered persecution or have a well-founded fear of persecution based on race, religion, nationality, political opinion, or membership in a particular social group. Asylum seekers must be physically present in the U.S. and apply within one year of arrival to seek protection. If granted asylum, individuals can eventually apply for permanent residency and pursue U.S. citizenship.

There Are Two Pathways To Asylum: Through The Affirmative Process Or The Defensive Process. 

If you are already physically present in the U.S., you may apply for asylum through the affirmative process, regardless of how you arrived in the country or your current immigration status. The first step is submitting Form I-589, Application for Asylum and for Withholding of Removal, to the USCIS. As already stated, you must do this within one year of the date you entered the country, unless you can prove that a significant change in circumstance delayed your filing.

Form I-589 is an incredibly in-depth document, and the potential to make mistakes that put your case in jeopardy is great. Our skilled Chandler asylum lawyer can help you avoid costly errors, as well as guide you through the steps following your application, such as your biometrics appointment, security vetting, interview with a USCIS officer, and more.

The defensive process is for those who have been denied through the affirmative process or have been detained for removal, and works within immigration courts. You can trust our experienced lead attorney to represent you if you must go before a judge, present compelling evidence of your need for asylum, and fight for a favorable outcome.

Our Skilled Chandler Asylum Lawyer Can Put You In The Best Position For Being Approved, So That You Can Enjoy The Peace Of Mind You Deserve. 

We know you have a lot at stake, and we don’t take your faith in us lightly. We put our exceptional knowledge of immigration law and extensive legal experience to work on your behalf, leading to an expedited resolution. Time is of the utmost importance in an asylum case, so don’t put off taking the first step for another day. Call now to schedule your free consultation and learn more about how we can serve you.
