Obtaining Asylum


For numerous individuals arriving in the U.S. and applying for asylum, success depends on the proper and complete support of a skilled immigration attorney. Subject to an approval of an asylum case and after a one-year period, permanent residency and U.S. citizenship may be on the horizon.

At the Bolour/Carl Immigration Group, we help asylum-seekers who have:

  • Been harmed through persecution or reasonably fear harm or death through persecution in their country of citizenship and;
  • The government in their country of citizenship is unwilling to provide appropriate protective measures or the protection provided is insufficient to ensure their safety

These conditions must be met to receive asylum in the U.S. Please call our office in Los Angeles to discuss your qualifications and the asylum process as it applies to your unique case at 323-218-0465.

Protection From Oppression And Victimization

Asylum-seekers come to the U.S. for protection. One must apply for asylum within a year of entering the U.S. If you pass that deadline and are at risk of deportation, you may apply for Asylum and for Withholding of Removal with Form I-589. We can also help you apply for permission to work in the U.S. with Form I-765 when you are eligible. While this option may halt deportation proceedings, it does not provide a pathway to citizenship. However, one year after being granted asylum in the U.S., you may apply for Permanent Residence (Green Card) with form I-485.

Additionally, you may qualify for other types of immigration relief if you have been a victim of human trafficking or other types of violence, including rape, domestic violence, sexual assault, hate crime or other violent crimes.
