Asylum can be granted to individuals who are just arriving to the United States or to people who are already physically present in the United States. A person has to show a well-founded fear of persecution if forced to return to their country of citizenship or last habitual residence. The persecution must be on account of one of the following:

  • Political opinion
  • Race
  • Religion
  • Nationality
  • Membership in a particular social group

Although there are some exceptions, you must apply within one year of living in the U.S. to be eligible for asylum. We have successfully helped our clients from various countries obtain asylum. Law Office of John Nwosu Attorneys are dedicated to helping people escape persecution in their home countries by securing them a safe haven in the United States. We prepare the application along with supporting documents, attend the asylum interview, and will assist if the case is referred to an Immigration Judge.

Regardless of the specific details surrounding your situation, we are here to help.
