Strong Advocacy In Asylum Cases

For people who fear persecution in their home country, the threat of deportation is very real and very serious. The United States government may grant asylum to people who fear persecution on the basis of race, religion, nationality, political opinion, and social group membership if they are returned to their country, and allows them to stay in the United States permanently.

At the law firm of Tanya M. Linetsky & Associates LLC, we are devoted to supporting those who face those fears. Attorney Tanya Linetsky delivers personalized attention and resourceful, experienced representation for people seeking asylum in the United States.

What Are The Grounds For Asylum - And Do You Qualify?

A person seeking asylum must know that it is a complicated process and depending upon the person's immigration status, is initiated differently. There are two main types of asylum applications, an affirmative asylum application and as a defense from removal.

Affirmative asylum application: People who fear returning to their home country can apply for asylum before removal proceedings are initiated against them. To proactively seek refuge in the United States, you must apply and substantiate your fears of returning to your home country with evidence.

Asylum as defense from removal: If you are seeking relief from removal, you could apply for asylum as a defense to removal. From our Ohio office, we serve clients nationwide who need to apply for asylum as a defense from deportation.

A valid request for asylum requires that a person fear persecution because of his or her race, religion, nationality, political opinion or social group membership, which persecution the government of the home country cannot prevent.
