Helping You Prevail in Your Asylum Case

To prevail in an asylum case, we need to prove a threat of persecution based on your race, nationality, political affiliation or membership in a particular social group. Individuals who do not file for asylum relief within a year must present exceptional reasons for not applying sooner. The immigration lawyers at our law firm will work with you to make sure you file for asylum within one year of entering the United States or secure an exception at the one year rule if you qualify for it. If you gain asylum, you can apply for permanent residency one year after the approval.

Withholding of Removal Legal Services

Withholding of removal may be available to persecuted individuals or those who fear they could be persecuted and who do not qualify for asylum. Similar to asylum, individuals granted withholding of removal relief will not be sent back to their home country. This is more difficult to obtain than asylum but may be available to those who did not apply for asylum within one year of entry to the U.S. or who have committed certain serious crimes that disqualify them for consideration for asylum.

At Katine & Nechman, we have extensive experience handling complicated immigration cases. We are prepared to present critical information to immigration officials, demonstrating a real threat of torture or prosecution if you return to your country. Our immigration team has the skills and tenacity to advocate for your safety.

Asilo y Suspensión de la Repatriación

Asilo es para las personas que huyen de sus países por miedo de ser perseguidos. Persecución puede ser daño o la amenaza de daño.

El asilo solo puede ser ganado si al menos que una de las razones por la cual le hicieron daño o le pueden hacer daño es dado a su raza, nacionalidad, opinión política o porque usted es parte de un grupo en particular. Hay que empezar el proceso de la aplicación de asilo dentro de un año de entrar en los Estados Unidos. Si no, es muy difícil calificar para asilo sin circunstancias extremas para explicar la razón de no aplicar dentro de un año de la entrada. Si gana su caso de asilo, es posible hacer una aplicación para residencia permanente legal después de un año de ganar el caso.

Suspensión de la repatriación y protección bajo la Convención Contra la Tortura son alivios disponibles a algunos que no son elegibles para asilo. Son como asilo en el sentido de que previenen que lo devuelvan a su país. Son mas difíciles de obtener que asilo y no resultan en residencia permanente legal. Tiene que comprobar que su vida o su libertad están en peligro y que es probable que suceda.
