Asylum Lawyer

For some immigrants, the United States is more than just a land of opportunity. It represents freedom from persecution. At the law office of Mark E. Jacobs, P.C. in Dallas, Texas, we help clients in the important and sometimes life-saving process of applying for asylum.

Clients have come to me after fleeing their countries based on a political situation. Others are persecuted because of their race, religion, nationality, or membership in a social group. Many illegal aliens who have been caught in the country or at the border and have been arrested will request a filing for asylum. These cases present challenges and eligibility for asylum is not guaranteed. An experienced immigration lawyer can help you escape the persecution you face in your home country.

Upon meeting with you at the law office of Mark E. Jacobs, P.C., we will discuss your eligibility for asylum and file an affirmative asylum application with the appropriate asylum office to appear before an administrative judge. If removal proceedings have started, your asylum application would be determined by an immigration judge.

Asylum and Refugee Status

If your application is granted, there is an additional benefit to asylum status or refugee status. You are able to file applications for your spouse and children to join you in the United States. After one year in asylum status, you are eligible for lawful permanent residence.

    Investigue cuáles son los mejores abogados en inmigración y decidí llamar a MARK E JACOBS,PC. para pedir una asesoría...Le hicimos muchas preguntas y obtuvimos respuestas muy claras...Observe que tiene mucha experiencia en casos complicados...Revisó la información y nos respondió que trabajaría en la presentación del caso y no cobró la consulta...! Me agradó cómo fluye la comunicación y la atención en esta oficina y más me sorprendió que mi caso se resolvió en 4 meses...!! Sinceramente quiero decirle a quien tenga la necesidad de presentar un caso ante “USCIS” que el primer paso importante es la eleccion de un “Abogado con experiencia...Especializado y Certificado en Inmigración”...y en mi opinión... MARK E. JACOBS el mejor.
