    Default Avoiding Deportation By Becoming a Religious Refugee

    Im a PhD student in one of the US well known universities, actually this is my second PhD, and I think itís more important to tell you that Iím here on a J1 visa with a 2 years home residency rule.
    A while ago, I had a major depression mode coz I lost my job in the university and at the same time my father passed away coz of a pancreatic cancer, because of all of that, I went through different depression modes and impulsive incidents (e.g., shoplifting). I got arrested and I had a sentence of 30 days suspended to 4 days on jail (I spent 2 days on jail). I had my psychiatric wrote a letter describing my psychological situation at this time, but unfortunately the court disregarded it.
    After the Jail, I decided to reconstruct my life, one of my major transitions in life was my religion, I found myself believe in Christianity, I started to tell my family gradually but their reaction was very bad and offensive, they will kill me with no word. I found no one in help except my wife, she loves me but she prefers to keep her religion. She is the truly only one who supports me at this time.
    The problem is my fear to go back to my home country. So, I need to know if I can be accepted as a religious refugee or not? And what are the steps that I have to do for that.
    Thanx in advance

    People do not steal because a parent dies or they lose a job.

    You need an attorney since you have many "issues" and an unusual situation.

    ..since when has Greece been anti-Christian?

    It's a serious question.

    With respect, that does not answer the question.

    You see OP, you would have to prove that should your return to Greece, your religious beliefs would result in an immediate and serious threat to your life and wellbeing.

    In other words, think along the lines of one religious group committing genocide against another religious group.
