Political Asylum

At Levy & Partners, our commitment to assisting asylum seekers is unwavering. We specialize in the intricate and crucial area of political asylum, providing comprehensive support to those who seek refuge in the United States due to well-founded fears of persecution in their home countries.

What is Political Asylum?

Political asylum is a form of protection provided by a country to individuals who are facing persecution or harm in their home country due to their political beliefs, race, religion, nationality, or membership in a particular social group. It is a humanitarian measure designed to offer safety and refuge to those who are at risk of serious harm or even death in their home country.

To be eligible for political asylum in a given country, individuals typically need to prove that they have a well-founded fear of persecution on one of the protected grounds mentioned above. They must also meet the legal criteria and follow the application process outlined by the country’s immigration and asylum laws.

When granted political asylum, individuals are allowed to live and work in the country offering protection, and they may eventually have the opportunity to apply for permanent residency and, in some cases, even citizenship. It’s an important legal avenue for those who cannot safely return to their home country due to the threats they face. Political asylum can be sought for various reasons, such as political activism, religious beliefs, ethnicity, or other forms of persecution.

Why Seek Political Asylum?

Seeking political asylum in the United States is a crucial option for individuals who are unable or unwilling to return to their home countries due to well-founded fears of persecution. These fears typically arise from their political beliefs, race, religion, nationality, or membership in a particular social group. Here are some common reasons why someone would seek political asylum:

  • Political Persecution: People who have been involved in political activism, opposition to authoritarian regimes, or who have expressed dissenting views may fear persecution in their home country.

  • Religious Persecution: Individuals belonging to religious minorities often face discrimination or persecution based on their faith, making asylum a lifeline.

  • Race-Based Persecution: Some individuals are targeted due to their racial or ethnic background, exposing them to violence, discrimination, or injustice.

  • Gender-Based Persecution: In some cases, women may seek asylum due to gender-based violence or discrimination, including practices such as female genital mutilation or forced marriage.

  • Sexual Orientation or Gender Identity: LGBTQ+ individuals may experience severe persecution in countries where their sexual orientation or gender identity is criminalized or not accepted.

  • Nationality-Related Persecution: People from certain nationalities may face discrimination or violence in their home country due to longstanding conflicts or government policies.

How Do I Qualify for Political Asylum in the United States?

To qualify for political asylum, you must demonstrate a well-founded fear of persecution in your home country based on factors such as your political beliefs, race, religion, nationality, or social group. It’s essential to meet the legal criteria outlined in U.S. asylum law.

What Is the Deadline for Filing an Asylum Application?

As a general rule, you must file your asylum application within one year of your arrival in the United States. However, certain exceptions or changed circumstances may allow for a late filing, so it’s crucial to consult with an immigration attorney to understand your specific situation.

Can I Work While My Asylum Application Is Pending?

After waiting for 150 days (approximately 5 months) from the date of filing your asylum application and applying for an employment authorization document (EAD), you can legally work in the United States while your asylum case is under review.

What Happens During the Asylum Interview?

The asylum interview, conducted by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), is a critical step in the process. During the interview, you’ll be asked to provide detailed information about the reasons for your fear of persecution, your background, and your experiences. It’s crucial to prepare thoroughly with your immigration attorney.

What If My Asylum Application Is Denied?

If your asylum application is denied, you may have the opportunity to appeal the decision or request a review by an immigration judge. Alternatively, you could explore other forms of relief or legal options to remain in the United States. Consulting with an immigration attorney at Levy and Partners is essential to determine the best course of action.

Our immigration attorneys possess a profound understanding of the complexities involved, ensuring that your transition from a temporary visa holder to a green card holder is as seamless as possible. Whether it’s family-sponsored or employment-based adjustment, our legal team assists with the intricacies of applications, helping you navigate this vital step in your immigration journey. We provide personalized support, ensuring that you meet all the eligibility criteria, gather the necessary documentation, and face the immigration interview with confidence. At Levy & Partners, we don’t just facilitate adjustment of status; we open doors to a brighter future for you and your loved ones.

What Is Adjustment of Status, and Who Is Eligible?

Adjustment of Status is a process that allows certain non-U.S. citizens who are in the United States to change their immigration status from a temporary visa holder to that of a legal permanent resident (green card holder). Eligibility depends on various factors, including the type of visa held, family relationships, employment, and other criteria outlined in U.S. immigration laws.

What Are the Key Categories for Adjustment of Status?

There are several categories under which individuals can apply for adjustment of status, including family-sponsored, employment-based, asylees and refugees, diversity visa lottery winners, and special immigrant categories like victims of crime (U visa holders) or religious workers. Each category has specific requirements and eligibility criteria.

How Long Does the Adjustment of Status Process Take?

The processing time for adjustment of status can vary depending on factors such as the category under which you’re applying, your country of origin, and caseload at the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) office. On average, it can take several months to over a year, so it’s important to stay informed and be patient.

What Happens If My Adjustment of Status Application Is Denied?

If your adjustment of status application is denied, you may have options for appeal or review, depending on the reasons for the denial. Consult with an experienced immigration attorney like Levy and Partners to assess the best course of action, which could include re-filing, appealing the decision, or exploring other legal avenues to address the denial and achieve your immigration goals.

Can I Work While My Adjustment of Status Application Is Pending?

In most cases, yes. After filing Form I-485 (Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status) and obtaining an employment authorization document (EAD), you can legally work in the United States while your adjustment of status application is under review. This is especially crucial for those dependent on employment for financial support during the process.

Can I work while my work permit application is pending?

Generally, you can work in the U.S. while your work permit application is pending if you meet certain eligibility requirements and have applied for employment authorization correctly. However, it is important to wait for the official work permit approval before starting employment.

Is a work permit the same as a green card?

No, a work permit (also known as an employment authorization document or EAD) grants temporary permission to work in the U.S. It does not provide permanent residency or a green card. Green cards offer permanent resident status, allowing you to live and work in the U.S. indefinitely, while a work permit is typically tied to a specific immigration status or application.
