Transgender Asylum Protecting Your Interests in Immigration Issues

Transgender Asylum

Advocating for LGBTQ+ Equality and Safety at Yekrangi & Associates

In general, LGBTQ+ immigration comes with a unique set of challenges. Transgender individuals seeking asylum are particularly vulnerable to these challenges, as they are often rooted in discrimination, violence, and a lack of recognition of gender identity in their home countries. 

At Yekrangi & Associates, an LGBTQ-owned immigration law firm, we acknowledge and proactively address these issues, standing as dedicated allies for transgender individuals seeking refuge in the United States.

Legal Recognition of Gender Identity — A Global Perspective

The legal recognition of gender identity varies worldwide, directly impacting the rights and safety of transgender individuals. Although society has made some positive changes with respect to sexual minorities, transgender indivduals are subject to a much higher rate of violence than any other member of society.   

In preparing an asylum claim, we discuss the decvelopments in the county of persecution, the number of violent attacks against transgender individuals, and how the county remains unsafe for trans people.  

Extraordinary Circumstances Faced by Transgender Asylees

Transgender asylees often encounter extraordinary circumstances, such as severe violence and pervasive societal prejudice. Yekrangi & Associates is committed to presenting evidence of these extraordinary challenges, ensuring a compelling case aligned with asylum laws. From addressing severe violence to discriminatory laws targeting gender identity, our advocacy extends beyond legal representation to address the broader societal context.

Credible Asylum Claims for Transgender Individuals

Building credible asylum claims is critical for transgender asylum seekers who often face skepticism or disbelief regarding the validity of their claims. Yekrangi & Associates understands the significance of this hurdle and works diligently to gather and present compelling evidence. This may include personal testimonies, medical records, and affidavits, addressing the unique challenges faced by transgender individuals to ensure a comprehensive and convincing case.

Culturally Competent Legal Representation

The intricacies of the asylum process, coupled with potential language barriers, make culturally competent legal representation an absolute necessity. Accessing legal representation, particularly from an LGBTQ-owned law firm like Yekrangi & Associates, ensures that transgender asylum seekers receive empathetic, informed, and culturally competent advocacy throughout the process. We stand with you as dedicated allies, committed to helping you navigate transgender asylum cases with deep experience and unparalleled sensitivity.
