NJ Lawyers | Middlesex County Immigration Law | Iselin
Iselin | 08830All asylum seekers must meet the definition of 'refugee' under the Immigration and Nationality Act, which includes persons outside of their country (and some persons who are still in their home country) who are unable or unwilling to return to that country because of persecution or a well-founded fear of persecution based on their race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion. Contact the asylum & refugee attorneys at Maverick & Peters, LLC to get expertise advice regarding your refugee & asylum situation. They are ready to provide assistance to families throughout Iselin and New Jersey. Although federal laws and regulations govern the asylum and refugee process, each request is determined on a case-by-case basis, meaning that an individual's application as presented to an immigration law officer is the most crucial factor in obtaining the relief sought -- asylum or refugee status. Asylum applicants cannot seek employment authorization at the same time they apply for asylum; they will need to wait for an initial 150 days prior to application. Refugee status is very similar to asylum, except that the person seeing refugee status is outside of the United States. Usually, a person seeking refugee status applies directly to the United Nations High Commissioner on Refugees in an effort to receive refugee recognition. If the refugee wishes to resettle in the United States, the U.N. will assist the applicant, and the U.S. government will review the refugee status claim before proceeding. The Asylum Officer or Immigration Judge will either approve or deny the application and send a letter to the applicant informing him or her of the decision. Asylum and refugee lawyer, Vince Maverick, can help you navigate through this difficult and unfortunate time of your life. If you're going through a refugee & asylum in Iselin NJ, give him a call today to see what options are available. Applicants have thirty-three days to appeal the denial of asylum, and instructions as to how to proceed with an appeal are included in the letter informing the applicant of the decision. The Board of Immigration Appeals in Washington, D.C. hears all appeals of asylum requests. An applicant receives a recommended approval letter when the Asylum Officer has made a preliminary determination to grant the applicant asylum but USCIS has not yet received the results from the mandatory, confidential investigation of the applicant's identity and background. If the results reveal derogatory information that affects the applicant's eligibility for asylum, USCIS may deny the applicant's request for asylum or refer it to an Immigration Judge for further consideration. The applicant and his or her dependents who were included in the asylum decision are eligible to apply for work authorization during the background check process. To work in the U.S., the applicant and each qualifying family member must apply for and obtain an Employment Authorization Document (EAD). If authorized, the applicant may accept employment subject to any restrictions in the regulations or on the card. The applicant and his or her qualifying family members are not required to pay a fee with the initial requests for employment authorization. To obtain an EAD, the applicant must submit Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization, to the appropriate USCIS Service Center. The applicant's case will be referred to an Immigration Court when USCIS is unable to approve the application and the applicant is not in valid status. A referral is not a denial of the applicant's asylum application.
