Oakland Asylum Lawyers Guiding Clients across the Bay Area
Call our firm if you have questions about how your gender can establish eligibility for asylum. While gender-based asylum can be a tricky area of United States law, an experienced attorney can handle the case. Asylum is typically granted when it is proven that the applicant faces persecution based on race, religion, political opinions, nationality, or membership in a particular social group. An Oakland asylum attorney at Landerholm Immigration, A.P.C. can help you navigate the complex asylum process and work to link gender-based asylum to one of the five recognized asylum categories.
Examples of Gender-Based Asylum Claims
The United States has a long history as a haven for those seeking protection from their home countries, and the asylum system provides an opportunity for a safe and dignified life. While many countries around the world have specific laws that prevent gender-based discrimination, there is evidence that the police and courts do not enact these laws and protect victims. Proving the failure of state protection is the most important element of a gender-based asylum claim since it means that their government is not taking the necessary steps to protect its citizens from harm.
Examples of gender-based asylum claims include:
- Domestic violence
- Fear of honor killing
- Female genital mutilation
- Forced prostitution
- Forced marriage
- Sexual abuse
