Family Members Who Cannot Appear at Interview

Spouses and children of asylees who cannot appear at interviews will NOT have their cases denied.  This is because of a just-announced proposed class action settlement.  Instead, those cases will be closed until the family member can appear at the U.S. embassy or consulate.

India's Women are Treated as "Property"

This article reminded me of two asylum victories.  The TIME writer explains the endemic harm to Indian women.  In our cases, the male clients were members of a minority religion.  They correctly feared their wives would be raped or killed if they were deported.  Those victories prove the point:  asylees can be from large, democratic nations.

If you know someone from India who fears returning, have them call (954) 385-0157 to discuss their options.  There are deadlines to file an asylum application.

How Atheists Can Win Asylum -- See Video

My fifth Video is now on YouTube. The information explains how atheists or agnostics can win asylum in the United States.  If they win asylum, they receive a green card.  These cases are difficult, but can be won based on political opinion and religion.

       A recent Sun Sentinel article highlights Judge Rex Ford, the principal judge who hears cases at the Broward Transitional Center detention facility.  Through a mixture of luck and preparation, I have obtained approvals from Judge Ford on the cases presented to him.

Protecting Women

Asylum is available to protect women who lived in a country where the authorities do not protect them BECAUSE they are women. 

Because this is an evolving area of the law, attorneys at Blandon Law often refer to the library of the UNHCR's Refworld.
