Asylum

If you have a reasonable fear of returning to your country, you may be eligible to stay here in the United States for your own protection, even if you came here without permission. The asylum that is most often given is political asylum, meaning there is something about you (your gender, your membership in a particular social or ethnic group, your sexual orientation) that makes it unsafe for you to live in your own country. A Court Buddy immigration attorney can help you seek asylum.
