Asylum Attorneys

Full Service Immigration Law Firm Serving Clients Nationwide

At Murray Osorio PLLC, we understand the complexity of the asylum process and offer our clients personalized legal services to help them succeed in their case. Asylum is available to individuals who are already in the United States and fear persecution in their home country. The persecution must be based on race, religion, nationality, political opinion, or membership in a particular social group and must be from the government or from groups that the government is unable or unwilling to control.

Timeline for Seeking Asylum in the United States

Typically, asylum seekers must apply for asylum within one year of their arrival in the United States. However, exceptions to this rule exist, such as changing conditions in the individual’s home country or extraordinary circumstances that prevented the individual from applying earlier. If an individual is granted asylum, they can apply for permanent residency right after they are granted.

How To Prove Eligibility for Asylum 

To prove eligibility for asylum, an asylum seeker must demonstrate a “well-founded fear” of persecution if they were to return to their home country. The persecution can take many forms, such as death threats, violence, torture, detention, or economic deprivation. 

CAT Protection in the United States

The United Nations Convention Against Torture (CAT)offers protection for individuals who fear being tortured by the government or a group associated with the government in their home country. Individuals must demonstrate that it is more likely than not that they will face torture if they are returned to their home country. They can apply for relief under CAT at any time, regardless of their criminal history.

Understanding Withholding of Removal

Withholding of removal is a form of relief from deportation for individuals who can demonstrate a clear probability of persecution or torture in their home country. Unlike asylum, withholding of removal does not provide a path to permanent residency, but it does offer protection from being returned to a dangerous situation.

Our experienced immigration attorneys at Murray Osorio PLLC can guide you through the process of applying for withholding of removal, gathering evidence to support your case, and representing you in immigration court. We understand the complexities of immigration law and will work tirelessly to help you secure the protection you need.

Key points about withholding of removal include:

  • It is a form of protection for individuals facing persecution or torture in their home country
  • It does not lead to permanent residency, but it does provide temporary relief from deportation
  • Applicants must meet a high standard of proof to demonstrate eligibility
  • It is important to seek legal representation to navigate the application process and present a strong case
