Los Angeles Asylum Immigration Lawyer
Following the Real ID Act of 2005 and other recent changes, people have to present much more evidence to support applications for political or religious asylum than ever before. Simply put, the federal government’s response to the events of September 11 changed everything regarding how asylum is applied for and granted.

Who can apply for asylum?
Individuals who are in the United States may be granted asylum on a discretionary basis if it is determined that the applicant has suffered past persecution or has a “well-founded fear of persecution” on account of race, religion, nationality, membership in a social group, or political opinion in their country of origin. People seeking asylum must establish their persecution on at least one of these five grounds. Asylum applications must be filed within one year after entry into the United States, with some exceptions being granted for extraordinary circumstances. We can also advise you on the legal requirements for refugee status.
Temporary Protected Status
Anyone whose life or freedom would be threatened in his or her own country on account of one of the five enumerated grounds of asylum is protected from removal under United States and international law. The United States offers Temporary Protected Status (TPS) to individuals from countries that have suffered natural disasters or that are undergoing war or severe civil unrest, forcing the displacement of citizens of that country. Temporary Protected Status is effective as long as the conditions persist in the country in question. We offer a free confidential initial consultation about your asylum application case.
