Asylum Lawyer in Huntington

Asylum is founded on the idea of releasing a person from persecution or torture if they return to their own country. Simply expressed, asylum is a threat to one’s freedom or life or the infliction of violence or suffering on someone who is perceived to be different in some way. Because of the large number of asylum claims made, situations involving asylum claims are often scrutinized more closely. A well-prepared case may aid the applicant in showing that he or she is a “refugee” under the Immigration and Nationality Act.


Obtaining an Asylum Permit

An asylum seeker must show that they are being persecuted “on account of” one of the five listed grounds:

  • Race
  • Nationality or ethnicity
  • Religious convictions
  • Political viewpoints
  • Belonging to a specific social group


To be eligible for asylum, a person does not need to have been persecuted in the past. If a person has a well-founded fear of future persecution, they may be eligible for asylum. Furthermore, in cases of well-founded fear, the applicant does not have to prove that he or she would be singled out if there is a history of persecution of persons in comparable situations. Allow attorney Shankar, an immigrant himself, to assist you in preparing an asylum application promptly.


Aggravated Felons are subject to a one-year time limit and must be denied.

In most cases, the applicant must file for asylum within a year of arriving in the United States. However, there are some exceptions, such as if there are altered circumstances in the nation that fundamentally affect eligibility for asylum or extraordinary circumstances related to the belated application. If you are a convicted aggravated offender, your asylum application will be automatically denied.
