Get Help Seeking Asylum In The United States

Because of ongoing conflicts, the United Nations estimates that there are 22.5 million refugees across the world. Many want to make their way to the United States to establish a new, safe life for themselves and their families.

At the Jacksonville, Florida, law firm of Rebecca Black Immigration, PA, we guide asylum seekers through the process. Whether you are already here or want to come to the U.S., we can help you understand your rights and options and give you a realistic assessment of your chances of receiving asylum.

Who Qualifies for Asylum?

According to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), people eligible for asylum in the U.S. are those who have suffered persecution or fear of persecution in their home countries because of their:

  • Race
  • Religion
  • Nationality
  • Association with certain social groups
  • Political opinions

Once you arrive in the United States, you will have to file a Form I-589 within one year. Failure to do so could lead to your deportation from the U.S. If your spouse and children (under 21) are in the United States with you, you can include them on your form.

Our attorneys have extensive experience dealing with all of the paperwork associated with gaining entry to the U.S. and gaining asylum. When any paperwork error could put your application for asylum in danger, it is important that you get everything right the first time.
