Seeking Asylum in the US for Individuals Facing Persecution

Asylum is granted to qualifying individuals who are currently in the U.S. and have a well-founded fear of persecution on account of their race, religion, nationality, political opinion, or membership into a particular social group. This well-founded fear must be extensively documented and supported with evidence. The burden is on the applicant to prove his fear is not imagined or falsely alleged. In addition to making a showing of a well-founded fear of persecution, the applicant must also show that there is no separate region of his home country or a third country to which the applicant can go to and be protected from persecution.

If you are granted asylum in the U.S., you, your spouse, and unmarried children under the age of 21 can receive asylum status, work, and attend school in the U.S. Further, you and your family are eligible to apply for a green card within a year of receiving asylum status. After a five year period of being permanent residents, you may be eligible to become U.S. Citizens.
