As established by the Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), those who have obtained asylum or refuge in the United States within the last two years can request this resource for certain family members. If the requirements are met, the beneficiary’s family can legally reside in the territory of North America thanks to the same permit.
For those who want to live in the US and show that they are at risk in their country of origin, asylum is a great possibility to do so. In that case, the beneficiaries of this regime can live temporarily and even request an employment permit.
What everyone does not know is that this part of the population, such as those who have obtained asylum from abroad, can sponsor the requests of relatives.
Asylees and refugees in the US who can sponsor family members
As established on the official website of USCIS, those who have been approved for either of the two statuses in the last two years can sponsor the request for spouses or children, as long as certain requirements are met.
The request for asylum or refuge can be sponsored by those who have any of these approved resources or those who have a green card. The requirements are as follows:
The sponsor must be a direct asylum or refugee; it cannot be taken from a family member.
The petitioner must have received an asylum or refugee permit in the last two years.
The sponsor must not be a citizen of the United States. In that case, you can apply for family residence through other methods.
In the case of a spouse, they must be married before coming to the United States. Regarding children, in addition to being single and under 21 years of age, they must have been conceived before obtaining asylum or entering the United States as refugees.
