If you are afraid to return to your home country because you fear violence on account of your race, religion, national origin, political opinion or membership in a particular social group, you may qualify for your green card through the asylum process.

Many victims of domestic violence, witnesses to crime and disabled individuals have won asylum in the United States. Typically, you must file your asylum application within one year of entering the United States, however you may qualify for an exception to this deadline if your personal circumstances or the conditions in your home country have changed since your arrival.  Attorney Karen Atzert will expertly guide you through every step of the asylum process.  She will help you to tell your story in the way that is most compelling to the immigration officer or judge and present carefully crafted arguments and legal briefs to convince the judge that you deserve to win.
