By way of background, I am here in the United States on a student visa. My family has been mistreated in my home country, and I am afraid to return there.

A: Owning real estate in your country of citizenship should not, in itself, undermine your credibility as an Asylum applicant. In fact, it’s possible that it could enhance your credibility, depending upon the facts and circumstances of your situation. If you are interested in applying for Asylum, you should consult a Licensed Immigration Attorney who has the knowledge and experience to guide you through the process.
