Hello! My name is***** and I am a licensed attorney with more than 15 years of experience. I am here to assist you with your questions. Please understand that if I ask you for additional information, you are NOT charged again and our communications are NOT timed. So please see this as a relaxed conversation between friends. I am here to help. Also, please do NOT click on the Opt Out button because if you do, it would prevent me from communicating with you and then it could take a long time before another expert responds to you.

Please give me a few minutes to review your question and I will be right with you with an answer. Sorry for any delay. I may have to do some research and at the same time I read and type fast, but not that fast! Thank you for your patience.

Sorry for the delay. I just ask that if it is bad news that you not shoot the messenger. Shooting the messenger is either leaving a negative rating (usually reserved for rude or unprofessional experts) or not leaving a positive rating at all.

You can file Asylum at any time, but after 1 year of being in the U.S., it becomes very hard to win. What country are you from? Why have you waited so long?

I am on H1B and i WANT TO apply for asylum been in here in usa for past 6 years , india
Immigration Lawyer: Guillermo Senmartin, Immigration Attorney replied 9 months ago

It's very hard to win an Asylum if you are from India. Why have you waiting so long? Who is after you in India and why?

Immigration Lawyer: Guillermo Senmartin, Immigration Attorney replied 9 months ago

There was a problem with your payment. Sometimes when a credit card company or bank sees two quick charges one after the other, from the same company, they think it might be a fraud. But that's ok, we can continue here without additional charge. Why have you been waiting so long to apply? Who is after you in India and why?

Immigration Lawyer: Guillermo Senmartin, Immigration Attorney replied 8 months ago

I do not know why you are not responding, but you are not charged per question, per response, nor per answer. So after I give you my answer, you can continue to ask me questions without additional charge until you are satisfied. I apologize if it is a site issue that you posted and the post did not go through.

Why have you been waiting so long to apply? Who is after you in India and why?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
