DuPage County Lawyers for Immigrants Seeking Asylum

Skilled Representation for Immigration Matters in Lombard, Bloomingdale, and Northern Illinois

Persons who are present in the United States and face persecution if they return to their home country may be eligible for special protections under federal immigration law. The U.S. government allows immigrants who are oppressed in their home countries and are in need of a safe haven to apply for asylum. Approval not only allows immigrants to remain in America, but it can also provide a path to legal permanent residency. The asylum process can be quite complicated, however, and working with an experienced immigration attorney increases your chances of success greatly.

At Mevorah & Giglio Law Offices, we have several decades of combined experience providing skilled guidance on all matters related to immigration; including family-based visas, employment-based visas, student visas, temporary visas, naturalization, deportation/removal, and asylum. Our award-winning attorneys regularly represent clients in Chicagoland and throughout Northern Illinois before the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and U.S. Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE), and we have a strong track record of success handling cases before these agencies.

We are highly recognized not only for our experience and skill but also for our client-centered approach. Our lawyers are honest, compassionate, responsive, and down to earth. We understand what is at stake when you are trying to gain asylum in the United States, and we are committed to providing the skilled representation you deserve. We know that it can be difficult and confusing to present your case to the asylum officer, and we stand by your side throughout this process and fight hard to protect your rights.

Requirements for Claiming Asylum in the United States

To claim asylum in the U.S., you must be physically present at the time you lodge your application and you must apply within one year of your date of entry unless you are applying for defensive asylum as part of a deportation/removal proceeding. You may petition for asylum for one of the following types of persecution:

  • Race;
  • Nationality;
  • Religious Beliefs;
  • Political Beliefs;
  • Membership in a Social Group; and
  • Threat of Torture (as defined by international conventions).

During the asylum hearing, you will be asked several questions about how you have suffered persecution or oppression in one (or more) of the above categories. It is essential to provide as much evidence and supporting documentation as possible to help validate your claim. Examples include evidence of threats, harassment, physical abuse, kidnapping, imprisonment and torture.

At Mevorah & Giglio Law Offices, we work closely with our clients to thoroughly examine their circumstances and put together the strongest possible case for their asylum hearing. We can also accompany you to the hearing to ensure the asylum officer fully understands the evidence and why you have legitimate reasons to fear deportation.
