After about five hours, the car stopped, and they were going to kill me. I was so scared that I peed and defecated. They did not like the odor and left me. The police took my report but warned that such kidnappings are not worth denouncing. To my knowledge, no one was arrested.

These are the words in the declaration of a one of our many I-589 (Application for Asylum and for Withholding of Removal) asylum clients. The original statement, in Spanish, said I was so scared that I peed and pooped. In the original statement, the client described mostly her fear and nervousness. Our Blandon Law attorneys – with 20 years of asylum work experience – focused the statement to increase her chance of winning the asylum case.

Should I Hire an Attorney for I-589 Asylum Statement?

To win an asylum case, an applicant must prove harm and the reason for the harm. The reason MUST be political opinion, particular social group, race, religion, or nationality. Persons shot during a robbery, for example, do not win asylum cases. An asylum applicant can prove this through their statement or declaration alone. BUT research shows that the chance of winning an I-589 asylum case increases many times if an attorney guides the applicant. This work includes preparing the application, organizing the evidence, and editing the statement.

An I-589 asylum applicant can hire an attorney for the statement alone. Blandon Law attorneys have college and graduate degrees in literature, journalism. In May 2024, Attorney Elizabeth Blandon will have a Master of Fine Arts graduate degree in non-fiction. All this information is for our clients.

What Can an Attorney Help Me with I-589 Statement?

The main job of Blandon Law attorneys is to help clients describe themselves in a new way, with a new beginning. They are no longer victims without voices. They are survivors, telling their stories of injustice in a way so that the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service or Immigration Judge gives them I-589 asylum. For example, while writing the declaration or statement, an attorney can explain why it is better to leave some information out. Our Blandon Law asylum lawyers also explain when it is important to get more evidence – perhaps affidavits from witnesses – and will mention that evidence in the declaration.

An I-589 asylum statement is NOT a plea for help. It is a serious piece of evidence. Help our Blandon Law asylum attorneys help you. Request a consultation today.
