Let Our Lawyers Guide You Through The Asylum Process
Persons seeking asylum in the United States should seek experienced legal counsel in order to ensure the Application for Asylum (Form I-589) is prepared and filed properly. Our Pennsylvania lawyers work with each of our clients directly, and prepare him or her to face any challenges that might arise in the asylum context.
In the U.S., asylum may be available to people who enter the country lawfully or unlawfully, whether they currently hold a visa or not. Applying for asylum can help to prevent you from being deported and going through a removal proceeding, and it can save you from persecution in your home country.
Our Lancaster asylum attorneys handle cases on a regular basis for people throughout the U.S. We can help you or a loved one apply for asylum based on past persecution or a well-founded fear of future persecution related to race, religion, nationality, political opinion, or membership in a particular social group.

Compassionate and Experienced Guidance in Asylum Application
Whether you are in the U.S. legally, whether your temporary visa has expired or whether you are facing removal from the U.S., we can fully evaluate your case and determine your eligibility for asylum. In most cases, applicants must apply for asylum within one year of entering the U.S. However, there are exceptions to this requirement. These exceptions must be analyzed on a case-by-case basis to see if they apply to your situation.
Following the proper filing of your application, you will be fingerprinted for background check purposes, and then an asylum interview will be conducted at a USCIS asylum office within 90 days of the date you file the application. We will carefully prepare you for the interview and address any background or criminal concerns that may affect your case. Our attorneys will do their best to ensure that you are able to start a new life with freedom in the U.S. after all legal requirements are met.
