Asylum Lawyer in McAllen Texas
As qualified lawyers, we know that looking for safety and security in the United States is important for you and your family. We want to provide our clients with the tools for them to be prepared to apply as an asylee or a refugee. Both asylum and refuge have similar and different requirements, it is the same process but the individuals are either in their home country or in the United States. Both forms of protection have a similar process of application by providing evidence of danger in the individual’s home countries.
If you are currently outside the United States and have ever experienced persecution in your home country you may be able to apply for refugee status. Abogado Guerrero can guide you into filling out a refugee application form and prepare you with the right documents.
If you are currently present in the United States you can apply for asylum. At the same time as applying for asylum, you can apply for withholding of removal, and protection under the United Nations Convention Against Torture. The application needs to be submitted within one year of your last entry into the country. It is preferable that while in the country, you have maintained lawful status in the country.
After our clients provide proper documentation and evidence we will wait until getting a response from the government. If you are granted refuge or asylum, you will have temporary status to reside in the country as well as a work permit.
