A person may be eligible for an asylum in United States if he or she is unwilling or unable to return to their home country for fear of harm or death. The United States offers two types of asylum, affirmative and defensive. The type of asylum you may be eligible for will depend on your manner of entry and your previous immigration history.
Affirmative Asylum filling is available to those who are you physically present in the United States. Regardless of how you entered the country or your current immigration status, you can apply if you meet the eligibility criteria.
A person may seek Defensive Asylum if he or she is at risk of being removed from the United States such as in the case of being detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). The person must meet the eligibility criteria to qualify.
If you want to apply for political asylum, please schedule a consultation with Natalia Morozova, an immigration attorney who will be able to answer all your questions and safely navigate you through the process.
