Asylum

Our firm represents applicants for political asylum in both affirmative cases, when you submit your petition to the asylum offices before being detained by immigration and in defensive cases before the immigration courts, after you have been placed on removal proceedings.

Political asylum is available to people already in the United States who fear returning to their home country due to actual persecution or have a well-founded fear of actual persecution because of:

  • Race
  • Religion
  • Nationality
  • Membership in a particular social group
  • Political opinion

There is a one year filing deadline to make an application for asylum. An applicant must file for asylum within one year of entry into the United States or within a reasonable time from the expiration of their authorized stay in the United States, usually within six months of expiration. Exceptions to the one year filing deadline include showing extraordinary circumstances or a change in country conditions which give rise to a valid claim for asylum. If the one year filing deadline cannot be met, it is still possible to apply for withholding of removal or for relief under the convention against torture. These forms of relief require an applicant to meet a higher standard of proof in making a successful claim.

We are extraordinary sensitive to the special needs of applicants for asylum and have an extraordinary record of success.

Jonathan A Kessous did an outstanding job in handling my case. He was able to get the most serious charge and several other charges against me dropped and my fine greatly reduced. I was most impressed with his professionalism.competence and the timely manner in which he responded to all my questions and concerns. This demonstrated to me that I was a priority and not just a client!

Robert White III, Esq. was professional and efficient in every step of the process. From dealing with my Worker's Comp insurance to making sure I got the best care with a skilled neurosurgeon and making sure my case was handled fairly by a judge and the court system. I would definitely recommend Garces, Grabler and LeBrocq for anyone who was in need of representation for such matters.
