Asylum Lawyer Broward County, FL

Everyone deserves to have a life that is free from danger and harm. In the state of Florida, immigrants seek asylum because of an unsafe environment in their resident country. Through asylum, a person can move to a country and seek to establish a permanent residency. But to achieve this goal, the individual must abide by federal laws related to naturalization and asylum. Our Broward County, FL asylum lawyer can offer assistance to immigrants who need asylum at this very moment. If you have questions about obtaining an asylum status, contact The Andres Lopez Law Firm as soon as possible. 

Your Rights To Asylum

Immigrants have the right to pursue asylum in the United States out of fear of prosecution in their resident country. Usually, the threat of persecution is based on their political opinion, race, religion, or social group affiliation. Asylum provides a person, and those closest to them, the freedom to relocate to the U.S. and avoid persecution that may lead to their torture, death, or potentially fatal injuries. Those who are granted asylum must continue to live in the country at minimum one year after asylum has been granted. They must provide information about where they reside in the U.S. to their caseworker through USCIS. 

About Asylum Eligibility

Those who are seeking asylum must file an application prior to arriving in the country. Foreign immigrants can get an application through the United States Embassy in their resident country. However, those who have fled from their country may be given asylum at the port of entry, such as a border crossing or airport. The individual must reassess the conditions in their resident country after one year from the date of their asylum being granted. Changes in circumstances to where the person’s safety is no longer in question could impact their eligibility to reside in the country under an asylum status. Furthermore, they must follow all deadline requirements as requested by their case worker. In extraordinary circumstances, such as a hospitalization, can result in an extension of this deadline. 

Removal Proceedings

Deportation or removal proceedings allow the federal government to send an immigrant back to their resident country. The immigrant has their rights to seek naturalization eliminated and cannot become a legal citizen of the United States. These proceedings often necessitate a hearing where a judge reviews documents and makes a decision based on current immigration law. If you or someone you love is at risk of being removed from the U.S., we urge you to contact our dedicated asylum attorney immediately for counsel.

We decided to hire The Andres Lopez Law Firm after her accident for the personal injuries caused by the other party. I can say, we have made the right decision by hiring them. Not only they settled our case, Alex from the law firm was always responsive to our questions and also guided is through throughout the whole process.
