It seems that there are new conflicts and threats arising every day around the world that, unfortunately, cause citizens to flee their country in search of safety and protection. Luckily, the United States offers asylum to those who can prove that they are unable to return to their home country because of persecution (or a well-founded fear of persecution) on the basis of race, ethnicity, religion, or political affiliation. The process of being approved for asylum, though, is incredibly complicated, and even the smallest mistakes could lead to being denied or your legal status being delayed.

In order to have the best chance at a future in the United States, it’s best to work with our skilled lead Tempe asylum lawyer, who is uniquely positioned to advocate for you. Mr. Ortega has in-depth knowledge of the ever-changing laws that directly affect asylees and those seeking asylum, as well as the process required to get there. Working with Ortega Law Group can ensure that you have a firm understanding of your legal options, and that you get answers to your urgent questions.

Call today to schedule your free initial consultation and learn more about how we can help you get peace of mind for your future.

Tempe Asylum Lawyer

How Do I Apply For Asylum?

There are two categories of asylum: affirmative (those who apply from within the U.S.) and defensive (those who apply as a defense against removal from the U.S.).

If you are applying for affirmative asylum, it is crucial that you begin the process within one year of entering the country. You will complete Form I-589, Application for Asylum and for Withholding of Removal, to submit to the USCIS. Our Tempe asylum lawyer will assist you in completing the form and review it meticulously for any errors. He will also help you gather any supplementary documents that can corroborate your claims of persecution in your home country, and prepare for your interview with the USCIS.

If you are in removal proceedings and are seeking legal representation to apply for defensive asylum, Ortega Law Group can be your advocate and give you your best chance in front of an immigration judge. You may be required to attend several hearings and provide additional documentation. Our Tempe asylum lawyer will make sure that you are prepared for each step of the process.

What If I Am Denied Asylum?

If your asylum application is or has been denied, you still have several options available to pursue. Firstly, our experienced Tempe asylum lawyer can help you appeal the decision to the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA), which reviews decisions made by immigration judges. The BIA may affirm the decision, send the case back to the immigration court for further review, or reverse the decision and grant you asylum.

Additionally, you may seek a review of your case in federal court through a process known as a petition for review. During this process, a federal court examines whether the immigration judge or the BIA made any legal errors in their decision. Our team will help you determine the best course of action based on your individual circumstances.

Why Choose Our Tempe Asylum Lawyer?

Mr. Ortega understands, personally and professionally, how stressful and sensitive your situation likely is. His experience with the USCIS, Board of Immigration Appeals, and the 9th Circuit Court can serve as a great advantage to you. We know you have a lot at stake, and we don’t take that responsibility lightly; we will do everything we can to pave the way for your safe and secure future in the United States.

My fiancee and I used Isaac for his most recent immigration case, and we are extremely grateful for the work and time Isaac put into his case, getting him the best possible outcome by having the case dismissed! Not only was Isaac efficient in the work he did, the firm staff were very wonderful to do business with, all the way through, Even in the end of giving us a credit back for the work that wasn't needed was beyond a blessing!! We couldn't have asked for a better Immigration lawyer than Isaac for the case!! I highly recommend this lawyer to anyone in need of help on their immigration case!! Thank you very much Isaac & Ortega law firm for all your time and business!!
