If one fears return to one's home country because of harm or persecution on account of one's race, religion, nationality, political opinion, or membership in a particular social group (i.e., LGBTI), then one should seriously consider applying for Asylum or Withholding of Removal.

Contrary to popular belief, fleeing one's home country due to fear of gang violence, domestic violence or extortion-- in and of itself-- does not qualify one for asylum relief.

There are various and complicated requirements in achieving a successful outcome in these cases, so consulting an experienced immigration attorney is highly recommended.
