A: In order to be eligible for Asylum, an applicant is required to establish persecution or a well-founded fear of persecution on account of race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion. It is important to begin the process expediently, and file for Asylum within a year of arrival in the United States, except in case of a regulatory exception to the timeliness requirement. In addition to Asylum, there are also related applications for relief with different legal requirements and evidentiary standards, which provide more limited benefits. These applications include Withholding of Removal and relief under the Convention Against Torture. If you are interested in applying for Asylum, and seek an opinion on your likelihood of success, you would be well advised to consult with a Licensed Attorney who is knowledgeable in Immigration and nationality law.
