Once you have submitted your application, you will be requested to interview with an asylum officer who will review your case and can potentially grant you asylum. Most cases are referred to an Immigration court where the decision can be made. If your immigration status has expired, you may be asked to defend yourself from deportation through a defensive asylum meeting. In this case, a judge will hear from you as well as the government and determine whether or not to grant you asylum.
Having proper representation is critical when seeking asylum. You need an attorney that understands the intricacies of immigration law and has familiarity with the political and social climate in your home country. The asylum attorneys at Florida Immigration Law Counsel can guide you through the process of being granted asylum.
