Attorney Helping You Seek Asylum
Being afraid of being in the country you reside is crippling. If you cannot worship as you please, if you cannot speak freely, if you are oppressed or victimized because you are black in a white society, or a woman in a misogynistic one, your only option for survival may be to flee.
With the help of experienced immigration attorney Alfonso Venegas, you may be able to find permanent refuge in the United States.

Located in Houston, Texas, and serving the global immigration community, the Law Office of Alfonso Venegas, PLLC, offers comprehensive, kind and caring legal representation for individuals seeking asylum in the U.S.

- Membership in a particular social group
- Political beliefs
Individuals who are seeking political asylum must do so from within the U.S., and must do so within one year of entering. There is no governmental limit on the number of people who may be granted political asylum.
If you file the application after one year of physical presence in the U.S., you would qualify only for withholding of removal and protection under the Convention Against Torture.
