        Question:

        How long does it take to get an asylum?

        Answer:

        To get asylum in the United States it used to take years. They’ve since modified it. After you’ve applied for asylum or claim asylum, they’re supposed to be giving responses within several weeks as to whether they’re going to approve or deny it, but our experience is that it takes much longer than that. It’s going faster, but it’s not as fast as you would think.

        Typically, the process is slow. You would file an application. First you would request asylum from the United States. You can do that either at the airport or through your attorney, and then you would file a petition for asylum. You also want to defer deportation as well at the same time. Then the asylum process would begin. They would interview you. You’d have to provide quite a significant amount of evidence of what persecution you’re facing when you go there, why you shouldn’t go there, and these types of things.

        There’s no easy answer. They keep changing the goal post on asylum claims. There’s been such an influx of asylum from Venezuela, and from people coming in through the southern border from other countries seeking asylum, that they’ve kind of bounced the requirements several times. In our experience, it’ll usually be well over a year before you get anything.

        Just a denial of asylum by itself doesn’t mean that you’re automatically going to get deported. Asylum seekers, many times, get denied even if we request a hearing or have a trial. There are other things we can do to avoid you being deported, even if you’re denied. It can be a long process. For this or any other questions, feel free to give us a call.

        “In October 2015, My husband was a passenger in a horrible car accident and was hospitalized for two months. After being in ICU for a little over a month , I reached out to Mr. Corzo and He met me in the hospital a day after. Since my husband was still unconscious and in ICU I decided to hire Mr.Corzo for Davids personal injury and workers compensation case. From the moment I met Mr.Corzo he was very emphatic and attentive to all my questions and concerns. Anytime I would email him with a question he would get back to me right away. I would even email/text his paralegal Denise after hours if I had any questions and she would get back to me within a hour. Mr. Corzo made sure he fully explained and went over everything with us before we made any decisions. Mr. Corzo went out of his way to make sure David was taken care of. After my husband was released from the hospital, Mr. Corzo called and checked up on David and made sure he was getting the care he needed. I truly believe Mr. Corzo went above and beyond for my husband in winning both cases. We are extremely blessed with the outcome and would highly recommend him to anyone that may need a lawyer. Due to my husbands injuries we will need to apply for disability, Mr.Corzo offered to help us fill out the paper work and make sure everything is done correctly. We can’t THANK him enough for all that he has done for our family. #Thankful”– David and Jennifer Alvarez
