We represent people seeking asylum in the United States, including those fleeing persecution on account of race, religion, nationality, political opinion, sexual orientation, HIV status, gender, or membership/perceived membership in other groups (such as gangs).  You can apply for asylum in the US if you have a “well-founded fear of persecution” in your country based on (1) political opinion, (2) religion, (3) race, (4) nationality, or (5) membership in a particular social group.  There is no government filing fee for applying for asylum.
