Asylum and Refugee Status

Illinois Attorney Assists Persecution Victims Seeking Asylum and Refugee Status

Lawyer in Chicago strives to save individuals and families with relocation to the United States

At Law Office of Martin Perez, LLC, I am committed to providing necessary legal aid to individuals and families seeking residency within the United States to avoid persecution in their native lands. I draw on extensive experience to help you gather the evidence necessary to make a strong showing that asylum should be granted.

Requirements for achieving refugee status

To be eligible for refugee status, you must show:

  • You are outside your home country and not willing to return.
  • Due to your inclusion within an ethnic, religious or other type of group, you are being persecuted or have a legitimate fear of persecution.
  • You have filed for asylum within one year of entering the United States.
  • You have not persecuted anyone.

For those who meet these requirements, I provide diligent representation to help them seek safety in the United States from mistreatment in their homeland.

Delivering strong advocacy for prospective asylees

Even when evidence of brutal behavior exists, obtaining asylum within the United States is a long and complex process. I will handle the technical requirements as well as the investigation to help prove that your fears are well founded. I will present your strongest possible case before the judge and work relentlessly to help you win asylum and eventually receive permanent resident status.
