I am an F-1 student preparing to apply for asylum. I was wondering if any one can advise me where or how I can get legal help with little or no cost, as I am financially strained with all the school fees. I came to the U.S in July 2012. My one year deadline is approaching, and I really need legal help with my application that also includes my wife
I'm not sure what you mean when you say you need help to "build" a case. Either you have one or you don't. Call your local Bar Association. They Wil have a list of volunteer lawyers or lawyers that will provide pro bono or "po bono" (reduced fee) services. Good luck to you.
My colleages are accurate in their comments. Most law schools have immigration clinics that may be able to assist you if you cannot afford a private immigration attorney. If you are an F-1 student, your education institution may have an international student department that has a list of qualified immigration advocates - attorneys or BIA approved agencies. Good luck.
