Affirmative Asylum Processing

Seek Help from York Immigration Attorney

Asylum is a type of protection for foreign individuals who are facing persecution or have a well-founded fear of persecution in their home country. Affirmative asylum is the process of seeking asylum before you are facing deportation or removal proceedings.

This is the preferred method of granting asylum and is considered a preventative measure rather than a last resort measure once you are before an immigration judge. Hiring a York immigration attorney from The Law Office of Rosina C. Stambaugh to represent you is within your best interest if you wish to apply for asylum.

Understanding the Asylum Process

Rosina C. Stambaugh is extremely adept at handling the affirmative asylum application process and determining whether her clients are eligible. The application to seek asylum can be complex and require a significant amount of documentation, as well as interviews. You will need a caring and experienced York asylum attorney to represent you in all proceedings.

You must be able to prove that you are facing or fear persecution based upon your:

  • Political Opinion
  • Membership in social group
  • Nationality
  • Religion
  • Race

Once you have arrived in the U.S., you must file an asylum application within 1 year. This application must be filed within a year of the time you arrive unless you can prove that there were special circumstances that caused a delay. Once the first steps have been completed, you will be sent a notice scheduling an interview with an asylum officer. You will typically receive a decision after your interview.
