Prepare For Your Credible Fear Or Reasonable Fear Interview

If you are in the United States or plan to come to the United States, you may intend to apply for asylum. If you have not had serious legal troubles with the United States before, this is called an affirmative asylum application. If your application is accepted, the next step will be a credible fear interview with an asylum officer or another government representative.

Your Credible Fear Interview

At your credible fear interview, you will have the opportunity to explain that you are afraid to return to your country. You may have a credible fear of torture or persecution because you are a member of a particular social group.

If the outcome of this screening is positive, you will be able to move on to the next step: eligibility to present your case for asylum before an immigration judge.

Your Defensive Declaration Of Reasonable Fear

You may already be in removal proceedings because of an aggravated felony conviction or reinstatement of a previous order of removal. As part of a defensive request for asylum, you may present evidence of reasonable fear of torture or persecution if you return to your country. If you are successful, you may be placed in “withholding only” proceedings before an immigration judge. That judge will then determine if your removal should be withheld or deferred because of the threat of torture or persecution.
