Immigration lawyers in the United States can explain you the immigration laws concerning receiving asylum, visa, or green card. They can also help you understand your rights, what immigration benefits you can obtain and what methods for receiving the said benefits are the best. Finally, an immigration attorney can walk you through the asylum process, both affirmative and defensive.
The last thing you want when you come to the US is that you’ll be removed from the country if you illegally entered it (meaning you didn’t have a valid visa). As you might have guessed, immigration lawyers are of best help in the defensive asylum process, when you’re under proceedings in the Immigration Court and might be deported.
On the other hand, if you legally entered the US and you have solid proof that you will be prosecuted in your home country if you come back, you might not need an immigration lawyer. However, if you’re not sure about your case, or if it seems complicated to explain your story before the asylum officer, an immigration lawyer can clarify what parts of your story you should focus on.
An immigration lawyer can assist at your interviews with the asylum officer, helping you answer questions thoroughly and consistently. Also, your immigration lawyer can help you prepare all kinds of documents and your story for the asylum process to make sure that you lay down all facts and prove your right for asylum.
