Asylum and Refugee Issues in the U.S.

Established St. Charles Immigration Attorneys

If you or a loved one have faced persecution in your home country or have been threatened with persecution, you may eligible to remain in the U.S. through asylum status. Seek out a St. Charles immigration attorney at Smith Law Offices, LLC; we fight hard to help our clients in asylum and refugee immigration appeals.

We strive to use our 30+ years of combined experience and extensive knowledge in the field to your advantage. It is important to understand that you can seek asylum even if you are here on an expired visa or are in the country illegally.

Asylum is intended to protect people who have faced persecution because of their:

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

Our legal team is here to help you understand your options and navigate the complex and confusing process. We aim to give you the sense of comfort and peace of mind you need during this difficult time. Although seeking asylum can be confused with seeking refugee status, the major difference is that someone who is requesting asylum is already here in the U.S. There are a wide range of requirements which you must meet in order to prove that you are facing persecution or are in danger, and we are here to help.

Consult with a knowledgeable St. Charles immigration attorney from our firm during a consultation. Call today to put our award-winning representation on your side.
