Asylum Win for Client, Domestic Violence Victim from Central America

     On January 24, 2013, Blandon Law won asylum for a woman from El Salvador, who was in deportation proceedings before an Immigration Court judge.  She was a victim of domestic violence and feared she would be killed by the father of her children if she returned to her country.
     Survivors of domestic violence do not automatically win protection in the U.S., so we were very glad to be able to help our client.
     We organized evidence for her and prepared her for the hearings before the Immigration Judge, to be sure she completely answered all questions asked of her.  In addition, we worked with her therapist who wrote a report about the effects of the abuse she suffered.  Now, she will be allowed to get work permit, drivers license in Florida, and bring her children as refugees.

     If you, or someone you know, was a victim of domestic violence in their home country, please have them call Blandon Law at 954-385-0157.  There are deadlines for asylum cases, so please have them call as soon as they can.

Refugee Children to Sing National Anthem on Super Bowl Sunday

     Refugees are persons who are resettled in the United States because they may be harmed in their home countries. Albert Einstein, for example, was a refugee.  The spouses or children of asylees can also be brought to this country as refugees if they are petitioned.
      On Super Bowl Sunday, hundreds of refugees will sing the National Anthem to publicize their love of this country.  More information is available at the Run For Refugees link.

Gang Violence in Mexico as a Reason for Asylum

       Recently, Yale University published an article explaining that Mexicans running away because of gang violence should be granted asylum.  The article can be found here.
      Immigration Judges do not like to grant these cases, but the south Florida firm of Blandon Law has won asylum for persons from Central America and Mexico this way.  Sometimes, the gangs are violent because our clients preached religion.  Sometimes, the gangs are violent because our clients are women who do not want to be girlfriends of the gang members.
      To find out your chance of winning asylum, please call (954) 385-0157 and schedule a consultation.  There is a deadline and filing late means your case will be denied.  If you win asylum, you get a work permit, drivers license, travel permit, and eventually a green card.
