Immigration Solutions: Asylum
What you'll learn
- The asylum application process.
This course is intended to provide an overview of asylum and the asylum process. Asylum is an immigration benefit that allows certain foreign nationals who fear persecution to remain lawfully in the U.S. indefinitely.

If you have a situation where you fear persecution and unable to live in your country, you may be granted asylum and you and your family members may be eligible for immigration benefits.Understanding the asylum process may save you thousands of dollars in fees to an immigration attorney for filing this petition.
By the end of this course, you will have an understanding of what asylum, the eligibility requirements, the application process and life after the grant of asylum. This course will walk you through the completion of USCIS Form I-589. You will also have an understanding of the bars to asylum.
This course is broken down into six (6) sections with twelve (12) short videos. Each video contains information and guidance on navigating the process of filing for asylum.
