 LGBTQ+ Asylum

If you are a member of the LGBTQ+ community facing persecution and harassment from your home country, you may be eligible to seek asylum. LGBTQ asylum is a route one can use to obtain legal residency and a green card by those who have reason to feel unsafe in their home country due to sexual orientation. Through seeking asylum, the individual can receive protection through residency by the US government.

Receiving this level of protection and safety can be a major sense of relief for LGBTQ+ immigrants, but there are a few requirements. When qualifying for asylum in California, you must first be residing in the United States. Often this means it is best to file documentation seeking asylum within one year of residing in the US. You must also be able to provide good evidence that it is valid to fear returning to your home country due to your sexual orientation. Along with this, you need to show that relocating back to your home country is not an option and that you would not receive the protection or support you need due to this discrimination.

Seeking asylum can be a very emotional and difficult thing to try obtaining for LGBTQ+ immigrants. No matter who you are or how you identify, you deserve the right to peace and safety. If you feel as if you could qualify for LGBTQ+ asylum, do not hesitate to reach out to us. Consultations with a LGBTQ+ immigration lawyer at Bueno Law is entirely confidential and we are here to help.
