Houston, Texas, Temporary Protection Visa
Asylum is available to anyone from a country that is too dangerous to return to, whether due to natural disaster, war, or political persecution. To be eligible, you must apply for asylum within one year of entering the United States, although there are certain exceptions under extenuating circumstances.

By hiring a lawyer, you give yourself the best chance possible of avoiding stressful, costly delays, and also of being approved.
