I-589 (Application for Asylum and Withholding of Removal)

If you are already in the US, are not a US citizen you may wish to apply for asylum for two reasons. First, if returning to your home country could pose a serious threat to you based on your race, political views, or religion you can apply for refugee or asylum status. Second, if you are facing removal from the US you can apply for asylum in order to halt this proceeding in some cases. To apply for asylum in the US, you will need to file USCIS form I-589 (Application for Asylum and Withholding of Removal), which will detail why you are applying for this status.

Number of pages of the form: 26 (form is 12 pages and instructions are 14 pages); where you file will depend on where you live in the US. If your case is before an immigration court, you will need to file with the court that is reviewing your case.
