Contact Soboyede Law Office for
Help and Guidance with the Immigration Process

At Soboyede Law Office, we have a passion for the practice of Immigration Law. We know, from personal, real-life experience what Immigration Law means and how it impacts you and your loved ones on a very practical level. We are committed to guiding and representing you and your loved ones through the processes and procedures that we have also successfully navigated in the past in our personal lives. Our Lead Attorney is a recent direct beneficiary of the U.S. Immigration process; he sought and obtained political asylum in the United States some years ago through the Affirmative Asylum process.

We have successfully helped clients with Affirmative Asylum applications filed before the United States’ Immigration and Naturalization Service (USCIS), as well as defense in Removal cases before the U.S. Immigration Court and the U.S. 8th Circuit Court of Appeals.
