Achieving Asylum: How an I-589 Attorney Can Help You

If you are considering filing for asylum in the United States, it is important to understand what Form I-589 is and how to complete it correctly. Applicants must follow the proper guidelines when filling out the form to ensure that their application is processed as quickly as possible and have the best chance of being granted asylum status.

This post will consider what Form I-589 is, the requirements to submit it correctly, and how an I-589 Attorney can help.

What is Form I-589?

Form I-589 is an application for asylum or withholding of removal in the United States. It is used by immigrants who are seeking refuge in the country and need protection from persecution or violence in their home country. The form must be submitted to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) along with other supporting documents.

Who Should Submit Form I-589?

Immigrants who meet the definition of a refugee can submit Form I-589. This includes anyone who has been persecuted or has a well-founded fear of persecution on account of their race, religion, nationality, political opinion, or membership in a particular social group. Additionally, applicants must prove that they cannot safely return to their home country due to these factors.

There are a few things to know about filling out this form:

  • You must complete the application in English. If you cannot write in English, an interpreter or your I-589 attorney may assist you.
  • You must provide all requested information accurately and truthfully. Providing false information can lead to deportation or other penalties.
  • You should include any supporting documents with your application. These could include police reports, medical records, or letters from friends or family members.

How Can an I-589 Attorney Help?

Since there are several important guidelines involved in completing and submitting Form I-589, the process can be quite tricky to complete on your own, especially if you do not have any legal experience. You will need to produce persuasive evidence to support your claims for immigration relief. A competent immigration attorney will be able to evaluate if you have a genuine case for asylum and if so, will be able to advise you through the 1-589 application procedure.

The attorney can then help you fill out the form correctly and ensure that your application has the best chance of being approved.
