One of my friend...

One of my friend has been in Israel with B2visa..

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken? Have you filed any paperwork with the U.S. government?

Can he get asylum to stay there

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer about asylum?

Not yet. But I was asked you before. But I did not get the answer yet.

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.

This is a U.S. immigration forum. You are not talking about U.S. immigration law but Israeli immigration law?

I couldn't get you. Just know me, what am I supposed to tell my friend. Is there the way to get the asylum or not?
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I am not fluent in English while talking. You just answr me. How to change status from B2visa to asylum? Which documents he needed to get asylum?
Immigration Lawyer: Guillermo Senmartin, Immigration Attorney replied 7 months ago

But your question is about how to get Asylum in Israel or how to get Asylum in the United States?

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.
