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.
