Los Angeles asylum attorney Patricia Depew has successfully represented people escaping persecution because of their race, religion, nationality, sexual orientation, HIV status, gender, or membership in particular groups. Asylum is legal protection given to immigrants into the U.S. who meet certain conditions. With a good immigration lawyer's help, these individuals must prove that they face persecution — or fear persecution — in their nation of origin. Immigrants may seek asylum if they are already in the United States or if they seek to enter the United States at a port of entry. Those granted asylum are usually permitted to stay in the United States and typically become eligible to apply for permanent residency.

A Track Record of Success in Asylum Cases
To seek asylum in the United States, you must be identified as a persecuted dissident or part of an oppressed minority in your nation of origin. That life is “dangerous” there is, by itself, not enough. The State Department or immigration officials must acknowledge the direct, personal threat posed to you in your nation of origin. Patricia Depew can help you explain to government officials the dangers to you and your family if you go back to your nation of origin. Pasadena asylum attorney Patricia Depew prepares for and accompanies you to any interviews or hearings with federal officials and makes sure your legal rights are fully protected.
Seeking asylum requires careful preparation and an understanding of how to present your case. In the absence of proof of another nation's legitimate law enforcement purpose, U.S. courts must assume that a foreign government's harassment of an individual is political in nature. Future persecution is presumed on the basis of past persecution unless evidence of changed conditions in the nation of origin can be presented to the court. Asylum is not granted simply because the nation of origin's government is “oppressive.” To be granted asylum, you must prove that your home nation's government would actually seek to harm or kill you simply because you are a political dissident or a member of a persecuted minority.
