For many women living in the Middle-East, living in their home country can be very dangerous. So much so that staying in their home country could mean death. In order to help these women, the United States is able to grant women who meet specific requirements with protection in the form of Asylum. Women can be persecuted for many reasons, including but not limited to: as due to their religion, race, nationality, political opinion, or membership in a particular group (women), to list a few. It falls on the applicant seeking asylum to prove that she is being persecuted in her home country, or that she has a genuine fear of being persecuted in her home country if she were to return, not only in her application but also in her asylum interview.
Asylum cases may appear simple, but there are multiple legal factors that have to be considered in deciding a case. Consult an experienced attorney before you file for asylum.
