At the Law Office of Ashkan Yekrangi, P.C., we can sit down to discuss your options and work on a tailored legal plan to keep you from being kicked out of the country. Being threatened with deportation can be very upsetting for you and your family, but it is important to remain calm contact our Irvine immigration attorney immediately.

Asylum & Refuse

Refuge and asylum provide protection to those who have a legitimate fear of persecution in their home country. While asylum is usually granted when you are in the U.S., there are exceptions if you are a refugee outside of the country. To be eligible for asylum, you must prove that 1) you are unable to return to your home country because of the fear of future persecution; and that 2) your persecution is due to your race, religion, nationality, or political opinion.


If you receive a notice to appear before an immigration court, you are in removal proceedings and need to immediately began building a defense to stay in the United States. Deportable offenses include certain misdemeanors, all felonies, terrorism, human trafficking, illegal voting, marriage fraud, fleeing an immigration checkpoint and smuggling an illegal alien into the country.

Temporary Protected Status

Temporary Protected Status, known as PTS, allows you to temporarily stay in the United States and it’s different from asylum in that it’s not meant to be permanent. TPS is granted for 6 to 18 months and is renewable as long as your home country’s conditions remain the same. You are also granted work authorization in the U.S. with a TPS. To be eligible for TPS, you must be from a TPS-designated country, including El Salvador, Guinea, Haiti, Honduras, Liberia, Nicaragua, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Sudan, South Sudan, Syria and Yemen.


Transgender people, and those in the LGBT community, face a higher risk of harm if they return to their home country. Trans individuals are eligible for asylum, as long as they apply for it within one year of arriving in the United States.
