Success Story: Asylum Granted to Client Who Has Entered the US for Over One Year

On January 19, 2007, a client Lin & Valdez represented received an asylum approval from the Asylum Office.  This approval is special since the client came to the U.S. before, has been in the U.S. for over one year, but with Mr. Stewart Lin¡¦s representation was able to demonstrate and prove change of circumstance and convince the asylum officer the reasonable fear of persecution if she has to return to her country.  Needless to say, the decision affects the future of the whole family of our client.  The joy and ecstasy we and our client shared is beyond description.

 

In the past ten years, Mr. Stewart Lin has represented hundreds of asylees, or people in removal proceedings, in immigration court and the asylum offices.  He appeared in court in Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, El Paso, and Harlingen within Texas, and was even asked to go to New Orlean of Louisiana, New York, and other cities to represent clients in court. 

 

Under the immigration law, if an asylum petition is not filed within one year after the petitioner entered the US, the petitioner will have to meet a higher burden of proving substantial change of country or personal circumstances.  If the petitioner can not prove that, then he will have to prove that it is more likely than not that he will be persecuted if he returns to his country to be qualified for another relief in the form of ¡§withholding of removal¡¨.  Unlike asylum, people with withholding of removal will not be able to apply for permanent residency.

 

Due to the approval to our client¡¦s case, she, her husband, and a foreign born child will be able to apply for green card next year. 

 

If you fear returning to your country because of reasons like race, country, religion, political opinion, or association with certain group, you may be qualified for asylum.  Give us a call.  You can find the best help at Lin & Valdez LLP.
