Skilled immigration advocates advise on requirements for achieving refugee status
To be eligible to claim refugee status, you must show:
- You are outside your home country and not willing to return.
- Due to your inclusion within an ethnic, religious or other type of group, you are being persecuted or have a legitimate fear of persecution in your home country.
- You have filed for asylum within one year of entering the United States.
- You have not persecuted anyone.
For those who meet these requirements, Berthoff Fernandes PLLC provides diligent representation to help them seek safety in the United States from mistreatment in their homeland.
