West Palm Beach Asylum Attorney
Compassionate Legal Service for Those Fleeing Dangerous Conditions
Asylum or refugee status is a protective status for people who have left their native country due to fear of persecution. Individuals who have entered the U.S. seeking this protection are referred to as asylees while those seeking this protection from outside the U.S. are referred to as refugees. If you are an individual who meets the definition of asylee, you may be permitted to remain in the U.S. by applying for asylum within a year of your entry into this country. After a year of asylum status, you can apply for a green card.

What Is the Definition of an Asylee?
An asylee is a person who fears persecution or who has suffered persecution in his or her native country (or country of last residence). This is a person who is unable to obtain protection from the persecution from his or her present government.
Persecution may be based on:
- One's race
- One’s religion
- One’s nationality
- One’s membership in a particular social group
- One’s political beliefs or opinions
When seeking asylum, you may include your spouse and children under the age of 21 on your application. You may apply regardless of your current immigration status or how you entered the U.S. This type of asylum is referred to as affirmative asylum processing under the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).
Asylees who are found to have participated in any type of persecution based on the above will not be granted asylum by the USCIS.
