Asylum


Seeking Asylum in Orlando, FL


Attorney Charles Dawkins Jr. has successfully represented individuals who are seeking asylum from their respective countries. Generally a person may seek asylum if the person is outside any country of the person's nationality and the person is unwilling to return to, and is unwilling or unable to avail himself of the protection of that country because of persecution or a well-founded fear of persecution on account of race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion.

Benefits of Immigration Asylum

Generally, a person who obtains asylum shall not be returned to his country of nationality; the person will be authorized to engage in employment in the United States, and the person may be allowed to travel abroad with the consent of the Attorney General. The asylum seeker also, within a certain period of time, may apply for permanent resident and citizenship.

Withholding of Removal & Convention against Torture

Generally, if a person asserts before an Immigration Court Judge that it is, more likely than not, that the person will be persecuted if he is returned to his country, he may apply for Withholding of Removal in his Asylum Application. The person may also assert in his Asylum Application relief under the Convention against Torture. Generally, the United States Government cannot return the person to a country where there is a substantial likelihood that the person will be tortured in his country.
