What are the types of asylum available?

If you are fleeing from harm in your home country and have already arrived in Georgia, it is possible to seek protection here so that you will not have to return to your home country and be put in danger. Of course, Georgia, and the country as a whole, is tightening its grip on immigration, so the process is not easy or guaranteed, and you must keep your criminal record absolutely clean if you want to avoid deportation. Still, there are ways to seek asylum protection within the United States.

There are several different kinds of protection you can seek. An experienced attorney can help you decide what protection best fits your circumstances. If you come from a country or region where you suffer persecution because of your religion, your race or your political beliefs (among others), you may qualify for asylum from persecution.

Similarly, if you are a woman fleeing from violence within your own home, you may qualify for the protection under the Violence Against Women Act. The act specifically protects women and children who suffer violence at the hands of a United States citizen or legal resident.

You may also qualify for legal asylum here if you are the victim of some type of crime, such as sex trafficking or other human trafficking. This may mean that you must agree to cooperate with the prosecution who brings charges against the people committing the crimes.

The important thing for you to do, if you are a victim seeking asylum, is to get proper help to protect yourself. With proper help from an experienced attorney, you can ensure that your safety is protected by the law and that your life is not put in danger.
