Asylum Immigration Lawyer

Asylum is a legal protection granted to individuals who have fled their home countries due to fear of persecution. When facing this daunting process, the guidance of an asylum immigration lawyer can make a significant difference. We acknowledge the uncertainty that accompanies departing your country of origin.

What is Asylum?

Asylum stands as a legal haven for individuals enduring persecution based on race, religion, sexual orientation, political opinions or particular social group. It provides an opportunity for asylum seekers to achieve safety in foreign lands, shielding them from threats prevalent in their home countries, and empowering them to rebuild their lives devoid of persecution. 

The process entails meticulous evaluation of claims, ensuring that those genuinely in need find a place of safety and security. Our asylum immigration lawyers are no strangers to the intricacies of the asylum process. So, with the due care you deserve, we can provide you with the emotional and legal support you need.

Benefits of Seeking Asylum

Ensuring our clients obtain said benefits is our priority, so let us help you make a step towards a better future.

Obtaining U.S. asylum is crucially shields from persecution based on various factors, such as race, religion, or nationality. This protection allows asylum seekers to escape peril and fear. Moreover, asylum approval opens doors to legal work authorization, since asylees can contribute to the U.S. workforce, fostering self-sufficiency, family stability, and economic growth.

Another key advantage of getting asylum is the option to apply for derivative status for an eligible family, which lets spouses and children seek protection, uniting with the asylee in the U.S., and allowing them to rebuild in a secure environment.  

Requirements

Asylum Eligibility Requirements

To be eligible for asylum, individuals fearing persecution due to several factors can apply at a U.S. port of entry or within the country. Asylum does not tend to be granted due to general violence or common reasons; one must prove there is a well-founded fear or reason.

Eligibility revolves around the individual’s situation and the conditions they face in their home country. To succeed, asylum seekers must establish a credible link between their fear of persecution and the specified factors. Our team of compassionate and empathic asylum immigration lawyers can help you ensure a brighter future.

I am beyond grateful to Nkechi and her incredible team for their exceptional representation in my immigration case. From the very beginning, Nkechi’s dedication and expertise gave me hope that all was not lost, even after facing a denial for my permanent residency adjustment from USCIS. She worked tirelessly on my behalf, always displaying the utmost professionalism and compassion. Nkechi’s deep knowledge of immigration law and her strategic approach were truly impressive. Her commitment towards my case was unparalleled, and her genuine care and concern made all the difference in my case being approved. This firm is deserving of 6 stars and is 100% trusted with your immigration issues.

The Gillman Immigration Law Firm worked with my now husband and I, on our K1 visa! From start to finish, everything was great! However, I want to highlight our paralegal, Alejandra. She is AMAZING! She was dependable, responsive and a pleasure to work with. She helped make our experience here great! Also, the entire process was quicker than what I anticipated! If you’re thinking about hiring GILF, do not hesitate, just do it!

The experience and services provided by the Gillman Law Firm were amazing and professional on every level. You stood by our side every step of the way. I cannot express how grateful we are. Thank you for helping us through this journey and bringing us out successfully. I pray that God continues to bless this company as it grows and continues to help immigrants the way you all so wonderfully do. With my experience, I want to advise people out there to take your time and get a good law firm to help you through this journey. And I will recommend Gillman Law Firm to you because, with my experience with using people who are in the business of filling out paperwork, it's going to cause you, in the end, more and a lot of stress because they are not lawyers and cannot help or represent you in any way in case of any issue. So please be wise and don't make the same mistake I did. But thank God for Gillman Law Firm, they go above and beyond for their clients.
