Asylum & Refugee Status Helping You Succeed 

New York City Asylum & Refugee Attorney

Assisting Persecution Victims Seeking Asylum and Refugee Status

At The Law Office of Yifei He, PLLC, we are committed to providing legal assistance to individuals and families who wish to avoid persecution in their native land by seeking residency in the United States. Every year, the US grants asylum to individuals who have suffered persecution, or who fear they will suffer persecution, due to race, religion, nationality, political opinion, and/or membership in a particular social group. If you and your loved ones fall into one of the categories listed above, our legal team would be happy to help you file a Form I-589 to seek asylum in the US, or take further legal action as necessary to protect your status in the US. You have only one year from the date of your arrival to the US to apply for asylum, so do not wait to reach out for help.

Your first consultation with our New York City asylum attorney is completely free of charge, so don’t wait to contact us. We can be reached at (917) 451-5173 or via our online message form. For your convenience, we provide legal services in both English and Mandarin.

Requirements for Achieving Refugee Status in the US

To be eligible for refugee status in the US, you must show that:

  • you are outside of your home country and unwilling to return;
  • due to your inclusion in an ethnic, religious or other type of group, you are being persecuted or have a legitimate fear of persecution in your home country;
  • you have filed for asylum within one year of entering the United States; and
  • you have not persecuted anyone.

If you meet the requirements listed above, you will likely be eligible for refugee status in the US. We encourage you to contact The Law Office of Yifei He, PLLC for help reviewing these factors, as they apply to your case, to determine if you meet the necessary criteria for refugee status.

Refugee & Asylum Help from an Immigrant Himself

Even when evidence of brutal behavior exists, obtaining asylum in the United States is a long and complex process. Fortunately, you do not have to go it alone. At The Law Office of Yifei He, PLLC, our attorney will handle the technical requirements, as well as the investigation, to help prove that your fears are well founded.

As an immigrant himself, Attorney Yifei He knows what it’s like to take shelter in a country other than your own. While necessary for preserving the safety of you and your family, the decision to seek refugee status is not an easy one. It requires you to leave the place you call home, along with many loved ones and friends who still reside there, and seek refuge in a new country. We want to help make sure your efforts are not made in vein.

When you work with Attorney Yifei He and our team, we will do everything in our power to ensure that we present the strongest possible case before the judge. Ultimately, we want to help you do more than just win asylum; we want to see you eventually receive permanent resident status in the US so you can rest safely and comfortably long-term.
