Seattle Immigration Lawyer | Asylum Granted For My Client!

This spring, I took on an asylum case that I had some concerns about but was confident that there would be a positive outcome eventually. I worked hard with the client to assemble a strong application with as much documentary evidence as possible, prepared the client for the interview and attended the interview with the client. Yesterday, I received a letter from USCIS stating that my client's application for asylum was granted. I called her immediately to let her know and she said it was the happiest day of her life. The application was granted in record time...I received the determination letter just 25 days from the asylum interview. Typically, it takes at least a few months, and sometimes a year or more, from the date of the interview for a determination. And, that is not including if the determination is against your client and the case is referred to an Immigration Judge for removal proceedings.

Fortunately, in this case, my client doesn't have to go through the nerve-wracking asylum process anymore. The world of difference that my client's status as an asylee will make in her life is almost indescribable. I could not be happier for her and her family.
