Seeking asylum to protect the future

For many people in other countries, a move to Washington, D.C., or other areas of the country does not simply represent the potential of experiencing new opportunities. For many, the decision to leave their home is one of life and death. Unfortunately, many people find the process of seeking asylum daunting. With the potential implications of being unsuccessful, many turn to the compassionate services of Chong Immigration Law, PLLC.

A successful asylum request allows an alien to stay in the United States with a pathway towards permanent residence and citizenship. This is allowed because the person faced past persecution or could face future persecution in their home country or the last county in which he or she lived. There are several types of persecution that a person can face.

Persecution can be based on a person's political opinion, membership in a social group, religion, race or nationality. The United States has recognized persecution based on a person's sexual orientation as a reason to award asylum since 1994. Individuals who are HIV-positive or transgender, or advocates of such individuals, have also successfully requested asylum.

For a request to be successful, people seeking asylum must be able to prove their claims, including why they fear that they are unable to obtain medical treatment, housing, or employment in addition to facing violence. Fortunately, Chong Immigration Law PLLC is dedicated to those seeking to relocate to Washington, D.C., or other areas of the United States to live an open, happy life without the threat of harm. If you are in need of asylum, our law firm can examine your case and help you choose the most appropriate path.
