FORT LAUDERDALE / MIAMI IMMIGRATION ASYLUM CONDITIONS
Permission to Work in the U.S.
You cannot apply for permission to work (employment authorization) in the United States at the same time you apply for asylum.
You may apply for employment authorization if:
• 150 days have passed since you filed your complete asylum application, excluding any other delays caused by you (such as a request to reschedule your interview)
• If you are granted asylum you may work immediately. Some asylees choose to obtain
Employment Authorization Documents (EADs) for convenience or identification purposes, but an EAD is not necessary to work if you are an asylee. To apply for proper employment authorization, you must file an immigration form that Attorney Gabriel Carrera can assist you with. There is no fee to apply for your first EAD if you have a pending asylum application or if you have been granted asylum. Attorney Carrera will however require a reasonable payment for processing the application for you.
Bringing Your Family to the U.S.
If you are granted asylum you may petition to bring your spouse and children to the United States by filing a Form I-730, Refugee/Asylee Relative Petition. To include your child on your application, the child must be under 21 and unmarried.
You must file the petition within two years of being granted asylum unless there are humanitarian reasons to excuse this deadline. There is no fee to file this petition.
Filing for Permanent Residence (Green Card)
You may apply for a green card one year after being granted asylum. To apply for a green card, file a Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or to Adjust Status. You must submit a separate I-485 application packet for yourself and, if applicable, for each family member who received derivative asylum based on your case.
