Immigration Law


If you face threats and persecution in your home country, your ability to legally remain in the United States is a matter of life and death. It is important to understand your right to seek asylum and make sure you take action within the required timeframe. A knowledgeable immigration attorney is essential for your future. 

At Birdsall Obear & Associates, we work with individuals, couples, and families seeking asylum in the U.S. Obtaining asylum allows immigrants to safely remain in the U.S. and stay on the path toward permanent residency and citizenship. 

Wisconsin Immigration Attorneys, Asylum attorneys

Do You Qualify for Asylum? 

In order to qualify, asylum seekers must be able to demonstrate that they are a refugee who is unable or unwilling to return to their country of origin due to persecution. Long story short, you must show that you would be persecuted for one of the following factors: 

  • Your race
  • Your religion
  • Your nationality
  • Your political opinions or affiliations 
  • Membership in a particular social group

Such persecution must be the primary reason for your wish to remain in or enter the U.S. Other reasons, such as pursing a better economic situation, are not valid reasons to enter the U.S. and apply for asylum. 

The Clock is Ticking on Your Ability to Remain in the U.S. 

Asylum seekers must file for asylum within one year of entering the U.S. We urge you to request a free immigration law consultation today by calling 920-315-3801 or contacting us online. Your legal status and your future are too important to leave to chance.
