After asylum has been granted

The process of petitioning for asylum here in the U.S. can be a very legally complex one. It can also be a very emotional one, given how much can be at stake for the person seeking asylum. Thus, when a petitioner for asylum has their petition granted, they may feel a massive amount of relief.

An important thing to note though is that being granted asylum might not represent the end of the immigration-related legal matters for an asylum seeker. Often, such individuals will have additional immigration issues to address after the granting of asylum.

For one, such individuals may have family members they wish to also have granted asylum in America. Thus, they may have legal matters related to petitioning for asylum for such family members.

Also, an individual may, after being granted asylum in the U.S., wish to become a permanent resident of the country. There is a legal process by which individuals granted asylum can apply for such an adjustment of status, provided sufficient time has passed since the granting of asylum.

Post-asylum-grant immigration issues, like the ones discussed above, generally have many rules and requirements connected to them and have numerous complicated aspects. Our firm can help individuals who have been granted asylum in the U.S. with navigating the processes related to immigration matters that have arisen for them following the granting of asylum. We understand how important these legal matters can be and strive to provide our clients with compassionate, strong and knowledgeable legal support to help them address such matters.
