Help For Immigration Asylum-Seekers In Wisconsin

In many countries around the world, people face threats to their safety because of their race, religion or other characteristics. These threats can be grounds for pursuing asylum in the United States. If you’re successful, you will have a green card, work authorization and a path to citizenship.

Getting legal protection through asylum isn’t always easy. The process is complicated, and you have the burden of proving that you meet the legal requirements for asylum.

Our asylum lawyers at Cabranes Durkin & Longdin are here to guide you through the process. We’re passionate about helping immigrants – including undocumented immigrations – find safety and security in the United States. Our bilingual attorneys can help you pursue every option for living a better life.

Who Can Qualify For Asylum?

To be eligible for asylum, you must:

  • You must be in the United States
  • You must show that you have a history or credible fear of persecution – that is, harm or threats of harm – because of your:
    • Race or nationality
    • Religious beliefs
    • Political stances
    • Membership in a particular social group

You must also meet other detailed requirements. Turn to our lawyers for guidance on whether you qualify.

The Asylum Process

There are two ways to seek asylum:

  • By applying through the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, which is called an “affirmative application”
  • By applying through the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR) if you’re already in deportation proceedings, which is called a “defensive application”

In both processes, you will have to appear before immigration officials in either an interview or court hearing. It’s essential to work with a lawyer in either case.
