Political Asylum

Freedom from Persecution: Empowering Lives through Asylum

Political Asylum

Political asylum provides guaranteed protection to foreign nationals in the United States who meet the requirements or laws that classify them as refugees. Every year, individuals flee persecution in their home countries for safety in the United States owing to their race, religion, political opinions, or nationality. If you are from another country and are already living in the United States, a political asylum lawyer can help you if you want to apply for political asylum.

Political asylum and immigration legislation can be difficult to navigate, as your safety is dependent on the accuracy of your application; however, our political asylum attorneys at Gehi & Associates can assist you through the process and help you stay safe and secure in the United States.

Individuals seeking political asylum may be protected if they are unable to return to their home country for a variety of reasons; asylum allows individuals to remain in the United States, apply for Social Security cards, petition to bring family members to the United States, and apply for work authorizations. By hiring a political asylum attorney, you have a trusted companion who will assist you in making a successful application while your claim is being evaluated.

Gehi & Associates will thoroughly investigate your request for political asylum; our political asylum attorneys can decide whether your case has credibility and can advise you on how to file the most effective petition possible. We can help you with the following:

  • Getting access to country reports and documents
  • Taking statements from you and your family

  • Filing your application with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.
