Are You Seeking Refugee Status?

If you were persecuted or have a fear of future persecution based on your race, nationality, religion, political opinion or your membership into a particular group you could potentially seek refugee status in the United States. While there are other criteria for becoming a refugee, the first step is to obtain a referral to be considered a refugee from the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program (USRAP).

Refugee Status Legal Help

When there is a valid fear of persecution or past persecution, becoming a refugee in another country may be your best option for safety. Qualifying for refugee status falls under immigration law and is not something to try and handle alone. A skilled Jenks refugee attorney will be able to walk you and your family through the process for the best possible outcome.

Top Questions to Ask When Hiring an Attorney

  • How many years have you been practicing law? How long have you practiced law in the local area?
  • How many cases similar to mine have you handled in the past?
  • What is the likely outcome for my case?

In legal practice, experience matters. An experienced attorney will likely have handled issues similar to yours many, many times. Therefore, after listening to your situation, the attorney should have a reasonable idea of the time line for a case like yours and the likely resolution.

What to Expect from an Initial Consultation

  • Seek to determine whether the attorney can represent you. There is no one-size-fits-all legal solution and it may turn out your needs are better served by an attorney in a different specialization.
  • It’s important to find a legal ally who is both competent in the law and someone you can trust to protect your interests.
  • Discuss how the practice’s billing works and discuss possible additional charges or fees that may arise during or after the resolution of your case.

An attorney consultation should provide you with enough information so that you can make an informed decision on whether to proceed with legal help.

Points to Consider Before Hiring a Lawyer

Experience. Regardless of the type of legal matter you need help with, an experienced attorney will usually be able to get you better results.

Competence. Determine an attorney’s expertise by asking about their track record for the issue you need help with resolving.

Fit. There are plenty of good attorneys out there; make sure you find one you are comfortable working with.
