Political Asylum

Never go into a Courtroom Alone!

The experienced Wisconsin immigration attorneys at Kaehne, Cottle, Pasquale & Associates, S.C. handle a wide variety of cases, including political asylum application. Contact us now for a free consultation, or keep reading to learn more about political asylum.

What is political asylum, and who needs it?

If you are in the United States and are afraid to return to your home country due to fear of persecution, you may be able to apply for political asylum.  You can only apply for asylum if you have been in the United States for less than a year so it is very important that if you are fearful of returning to your home country you immediately seek the assistance of an experienced immigration attorney.  *This area of the law is constantly under the threat of change by the current administration so it is imperative that you speak to an experienced immigration attorney before filing anything, to insure that you are still eligible.

Who can be granted political asylum, and how can an immigration attorney help?

In order to be eligible for political asylum, your fear of persecution must be well-founded, based on your participation in one or more of the following categories: race, nationality, religion, political opinion, or membership of a particular social group.  Determining what category your well-founded fear stems from can be challenging.  An attorney will be able to help you evaluate which category or categories you may fit into and will be able to help you demonstrate a well-founded fear of persecution.

If you are granted a political asylum visa, you will be able to stay in the United States indefinitely; however, if the conditions of your home country improve, the United States may be able to send you back to your home country.  Fortunately, a political asylum visa is one way in which you can become a lawful permanent resident and eventually a United States citizen.  Additionally, if granted political asylum, you will legally be able to work while in the United States.

Our Results

Beyond Expectations

My husband had never been in any legal trouble before and we didn’t know what to do or what the process was. Attorney Kaehne was very upfront and willing to explain every step of the way. My husband can be very skeptical when it comes to trusting people with his best interest, but Attorney Kaehne always remained professional and helpful. My husband was facing the possibility of years in prison and Attorney Kaehne was able to get the matter dismissed. He will always be our first choice!

The Outcome was Far Better than I Expected

Attorney Kaehne always communicated with me on what was going on and his plans for future court appearances. The outcome of the case was far more better than I expected and am really pleased that Chad did what he did to get this issue resolved.

Treated like Family

Amazing people as well as amazing attorneys. I was always treated like family.

Not Guilty Verdict

Attorney Corey Mehlos gave my case the upmost attention. He worked very hard and many long hours on it. I was impressed with his dedication and his understanding to my wishes. Not Guilty verdict at my jury trial. I highly recommend him.

In Good Hands

One of the best things about this firm is that they are truly advocates for you in every sense of the word. They listen, affirm, and explain everything without all the jargon that can so often times come with anything regarding the legal cases. I felt supported and knew I was in good hands.
