U.S. immigration law is complex. It also changes often and even those who try to stay updated on such matters may feel overwhelmed at times because a regulation that applies to a particular situation one day might be obsolete the next. This is one of many reasons it helps to rely on experienced representation when trying to resolve immigration-related legal problems in Pennsylvania. A process that is often complicated is asylum, though it may be less so, if you seek legal support.

Perhaps you are one of many immigrants who fled your country of origin due to threats of violence, poverty or fear of persecution. Many people facing such circumstances arrive at U.S. borders in fear for their lives. On the other hand, maybe you have already been living in the United States, but your visa has expired and you wish to determine whether you are eligible for asylum.

Whatever the details of your particular circumstances happen to be, you can keep stress levels to a minimum by tapping into local resources for support. From filling out paperwork, getting fingerprinted or attending an immigration interview, having someone well versed in U.S. immigration law by your side is a great asset. This is especially true for those who are still struggling to learn the English language.

Regarding asylum, most cases require you to submit your application within a year of your arrival in the United States although there are exceptions to the rule. The Mattes & Mahon, PC, in Pennsylvania, is committed to helping immigrants resolve legal problems associated with asylum.  You may also request a meeting for support for situations involving visas, marriage interviews or undocumented status issues.
