Every year, thousands of people come to the United States in need of protection because they have been persecuted or fear they will be persecuted on account of their race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion.
Our Connecticut immigration attorneys, have experience assisting clients from all over the world in their pursuit for a safe place for themselves and their children.
Asylum is a form of protection that allows individuals who are in the United States to remain here, provided that they meet the definition of a refugee and are not barred from either applying for or being granted asylum, and eventually to adjust their status to lawful permanent resident.
Those found eligible for asylum are permitted to remain in the United States. If you are fleeing persecution, or since your arrival in the United States, conditions in your country of origin have drastically changed and you may face persecution when you return because of your membership in a particular group (political, ethnic, race, religion), please contact our office. Our immigration lawyers can help.
