Seeking Political Asylum? Let Us Stand Beside You in Your Time of Need

Political Asylum Immigration

Need an Attorney in Louisiana?

Foreign nationals who are suffering persecution for belonging to a certain group in their home country may be eligible to apply for asylum in the United States. In order to complete the process and be granted this status, it is necessary to meet a number of requirements, including providing sufficient evidence of persecution.

Discuss your case. Call (337) 214-0670 for an initial evaluation.

Because of all the necessary documentation, collection of information, and high standard of evidence, having an experienced Louisiana immigration lawyer at your side can significantly improve the chances of obtaining asylum. From assisting with the paperwork to advocating on your behalf, our team at Ashley Foret Dees, LLC walks you through every step of the process!

Asylum can help you avoid persecution from:

  • Political views
  • Race or ethnicity
  • Religious beliefs
  • Gender
  • Sexual orientation
  • Affiliation with a particular social group

How to Claim Asylum

Asylum can be requested by claiming it at any port of entry to the United States - including borders, airports, and seaports - and providing evidence of persecution to the officer. Within six weeks of filing an application for this status, you will then have an interview at a local asylum office where you will be asked questions and allowed to describe past persecution as well as fear of future persecution upon return to your native country. After the interview, a decision will be given that either recommends or does not recommend asylum.

Offering Compassionate & Caring Legal Representation

If you or a loved one face mistreatment in their home country based on classification in a protected group, there is hope for peace and safety within the borders of the United States. We are prepared to represent your case before immigration officials in Lake Charles, Baton Rouge, and other communities throughout Louisiana. When you retain our firm, we will work to provide strong and detailed evidence to support your claims, and can even work to overturn an application that was denied.

  • This firm was great!

    “This firm was great! They helped my uncle obtain his green card. The entire staff was extremely helpful and pleasant at all times. We live in Houston and the staff made us feel like at home anytime we had questions. It was a long process but the Attorneys were very hands on and met all of our expectations. If I could rate this higher than 5 stars I would. Thank you so much everyone for all the help, my uncle is extremely thankful and we recommend this firm to everyone, you all are the BEST!”

  • This entire office is an amazing team and we recommend them to all of our friends

    “We have been using this office since 2014. They have helped us from adjusting my husbands status from his overstayed visa, to getting his travel permit, green card, and now his citizenship! They were able to pretty much do everything for us to where we only needed to submit documents and stay in contact. They made the entire process smooth and quick for us. They helped put our minds at ease when we were worried what could happen while we wait. Very good with quick response times! Very friendly staff! Both Ashley & Jeb were amazing to us and worked closely with us throughout the process! Maria & Josue were our main contacts throughout this as well and were just friendly and always answered my questions. Karen & Ann were amazing with working out payment arrangements for us during a difficult time of a new baby. This entire office is an amazing team and we recommend them to all of our friends who will need to go through these things as well! Thanks for all your help!”

  • Thank you all for aiding us in finally having a stress-free life.

    “We we're very nervous about driving 3 hours just to get an attorney but upon arrival we immediately felt comfortable. The estimated process time given to us from this office was 6-9 months and we finished everything before the 9 months which was amazing. Thanks to Ashley, Josue, Maria and Karen we succeeded in getting my husband's Green Card. Our family can finally live in peace knowing we will not he separated. We have felt like these people became part of our family. Nothing about this felt like an attorney on client relationship, everything was personal and very professional and we could not have asked for a better experience. We will definitely be hiring Ashley again for the removal of conditions for my husband and hopefully my husband decides to do his citizenship so we can again, hire Ashley. Thank you all for aiding us in finally having a stress-free life. God Bless you all! Muchas Gracias por todo. --*The Terrazas family. *Case involved an I-130 + I-485 Adjustment of Status. ”
