If you have come to the UK and you are unable to return to your country for fear of persecution because of your race, religion, nationality, political opinion or because you are a member of particular social group you may be able to seek Asylum. We are particularly experienced in Asylum claims on the basis on sexuality.
In order to claim asylum successfully in the United Kingdom we have to demonstrate that you have a well-founded fear of persecution. We must prove that you are a person who, owing to a well-founded fear of being persecuted for reasons of race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group or political opinion, is outside his country of nationality and is unable or owing to such fear is unwilling to avail himself of the protection of that country.
Read the article ‘Human Rights Claims – on the basis of Homosexuality in Asylum Applications & Appeals‘ Danielle Cohen in the Immigration Law Practitioners’ Association Monthly (April 2018).
In order to prove this, when preparing your application, Danielle will take a full statement from you to enable you to explain in full your circumstances and the reasons for your fear, she will compile a comprehensive bundle of evidence in support of your claim, including reports from experts in your country of origin and she will offer her advice and assistance throughout the asylum application process. When you claim asylum, you will first have to attend a screening interview, which will be followed a few months afterwards by a substantive interview. Both of these take place at the Home Office and one of the members of Danielle’s team of immigration solicitor will help you to prepare for both of these interviews and accompany you to them on the day.
Danielle invites you to take a look at her blog, where you will see that she has helped a diverse range of clients claim asylum, including Coptic Christians, victims of war crime in Syria and same-sex couples. If you have any questions about the process or would like to claim asylum please contact Danielle on 020 7267 4133. Danielle will only charge you for the first consultation if you decide to become her client and if she can assist you.
