Asylum lawyers are immigration specialists who can assist with your asylum application or represent you at an appeal if your asylum application has been refused. Asylum seekers have to make their asylum claim in person either on arrival or as soon after arrival at the designated immigration office. However once an asylum seeker has lodged their asylum claim then they can appoint an asylum lawyers to engage with the immigration authorities.
Asylum lawyers understand the limitations that asylum seekers often have and recognise that because of the experiences in their country of origin some people have a fear of engaging with authorities and officials. They will help the asylum seeker with drafting their witness statement and statement of evidence form and so on.
