When faced with a dangerous situation in your home country, whether through political affiliations, religion or other situation, you have the right to seek asylum in the U.S. through the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS).

Filing for Asylum requires an interview process with an Asylum Officer or in a hearing with an Asylum Judge. Also required is a security check and background investigation by the FBI, CIA, and Homeland Security. The results of this investigation will be part of what determines your likelihood of obtaining asylum. Anyone who is known to have a criminal background or involved with terrorist groups or criminal organizations is likely to be denied.
During this hearing, a foreign national is entitled to have an interpreter and their lawyer present. At Ershaghi Immigration Law Center, we know how to properly approach these proceedings to help our clients seek a positive result. Specific documentation is required as well, including a passport (if you have one) or other forms of travel documents or identification. If you are attempting to bring in family members as well and they are listed on your application, such as a spouse or children, they must also appear with you at the hearing. Other relevant immigration documents must be brought, including an I-589, birth certificate, marriage certificate and other documentation showing reasons why you need asylum.
