IMMIGRATION SERVICE

Artist and Talent Based Visas

There are many options available for persons looking to get a visa or a green card in the U.S. based on their artistic abilities and talent! Read more below:

  •  O-1 Visa
    The O-1 is a temporary work visa for “aliens of extraordinary ability.” This visa category is available to accomplished persons who work in the arts (O-1B), in the sciences, business, education and athletics (O-1A), or in motion pictures and television (O-1B).
  • EB-1 Green Card
    EB-1 Green Cards are for people who can demonstrate that they have risen to the very top of their field of endeavor. They must demonstrate evidence of sustained national or international acclaim, and that they will continue to work in that field in the U.S. and requires either a major, internationally recognized award (such as a Nobel Prize or Academy Award), or at least three other types of evidence of accomplishments and renown. This evidence can include awards of lesser national or international prominence, press coverage about the foreign worker, scholarly publications authored by the foreign worker, and other types of documents, depending on relevance to the field and how the foreign worker established his or her professional renown.
  • EB-2 National Interest Waiver Green Card
    The National Interest Waiver is for either advanced degree professionals or persons of exceptional ability. The application must describe a proposed endeavor that has substantial merit and is of national importance, and show that the foreign national is well-positioned to advance that endeavor, and show that, on balance, it would be beneficial to waive the requirements of labor certification and a full-time job offer. The NIW category does not require evidence of personal renown or broad name recognition like the extraordinary ability or outstanding researcher categories but does require proof of the widespread impact of the individual’s work. Applicants in this category may self-sponsor.
  • EB-2 Advanced Degree Professionals
    This EB-2 category is for people who have been offered a permanent, full-time job by a U.S. employer, where the job requires an advanced degree, such as a Master’s degree or Ph.D., and where the foreign worker has the required degree or its equivalent at the time the employer files for labor certification. This category requires an employer-sponsor.
  • EB-3 Visas
    EB-3 Visas are for people who have been offered a permanent, full-time job by a U.S. employer. Where the job requires at least a Bachelor’s and the worker possesses a four-year degree or its academic equivalent, the classification is Professional Worker. Where the job requires at least two years of related work experience, or an Associate’s degree and at least one year of post-degree work experience, the classification is a Skilled Worker. Where the job requires a total of one year or less of related work experience or training, the classification is Other Worker.
  •   Moumita is hands down the BEST immigration lawyer out there. We had a extremely difficult immigration case in our family and have searched around for a good lawyer and she was the ONLY one that had a solution for us. Other lawyers also wanted a big amount of money up front and we have heard horror stories of other lawyers disappearing or handle everything slowly after getting money from you. Moumita was the total opposite. She charged a very reasonable fee and she and her team handled everything beautifully. All our questions and concerns were addressed in a timely manner. Even tho our case dragged on for a while, Moumita and her team always addressed our questions and concerns right away and did everything very efficiently.

    Other lawyers out there are practicing for the money, Moumita is a lawyer with heart, empathy and sympathy.

    We are all so very thankful for Moumita and I would HIGHLY recommend her! If you need a immigration lawyer, Moumita is the best one out there!

      Attorney Rahman is a pleasure to work with! She and her team are extremely professional and competent. The entire process of Removal of Conditions was as painless as could be and of course it was approved. She kept me updated throughout the process and answered all my questions patiently. I cannot recommend her enough, schedule an appointment and you'll know.

      I'd give 10 stars if I could.

    If you take away one thing from this review it's this: HIRE MOUMITA FOR YOUR CASE! She is the best and truly deserves all the awards and commendations she's earned.

    I can't say enough positive things about my experience working with Moumita and her team during the process of applying for/obtaining my Green Card. They were always quick to respond to things, always let me know about new developments and how they might affect our case, and just generally guided us through the entire process with a steady hand that I will be eternally grateful for.

    Our case ended up having some unforeseen complications that I won't get into here (we personally believe it was due to a USCIS error), resulting in my wife and I having to do a Stokes interview. For those who are unaware, this happens if USCIS has any reason to believe something is up and will then conduct separate interviews of the beneficiary and petitioner to make sure things line up. We hadn't done anything wrong and getting this outcome from our first interview was emotionally devastating to my wife and me, but Moumita did an amazing job giving us perspective and calming us down. She was also absolutely incredible at helping us prepare for the second (Stokes) interview - which ultimately ended up being quite brief (but gave us a long, hilarious story to tell friends now that it's all behind us) because the agent saw that clearly everything was legitimate.

    The immigration process is, unfortunately, ridiculously complicated. While it's not impossible to go it alone, having a great attorney such as Moumita by your side certainly makes the whole process a LOT easier. She put in so much time and effort on our behalf and my wife and I came to genuinely think of her as a friend through the course of the process. We'd chit chat about our families and food while we waited for our USCIS appointments and she's just such a real, down-to-earth, compassionate person. You are not just a case number to her - Moumita actually treats you like a person whose worries and concerns really matter, a dignity that often isn't given to clients by much larger firms.

    If money is your concern, I can also tell you that a) her rates are far more reasonable than most other attorneys I looked at and the level of service provided is beyond excellent and probably worth 10x more than what she asks for, and b) it's 110% worth the investment because trying to do it on your own and potentially having to re-do the entire process due to some critical error she'd have foreseen will ultimately be WAY more expensive than hiring her and getting it right the first time.

    Hiring Moumita was the BEST decision I made in my immigration journey. For whatever my words are worth, just go for it and hire her. You won't regret it for a minute.

  •   Moumita is the best lawyer my wife and I could have asked for. Not only is she extremely nice, but also very diligent on her work. She assisted my wife and I on our Greencard application (marriage-based) and albeit long, the process was very smooth. She was available throughout the whole process and was with us for our interview. She was referred to me by a friend who also praised her and Nana for being amazing! Thank you Moumita and Nana!

      My husband and I will always be grateful for Moumita Rahman. We were overwhelmed with all the forms and paperwork that are required to claim your spouse for a residency and decided to hire an attorney which is also not an easy decision to make.

    Even thought these days these processes are taking so much longer than usual, Moumita and her assistant Violet made the entire waiting so much easier.

    We found Moumita thru Yelp based on her great reviews and we are so glad we made the choice to go with her. She was ultimate professional, very warm and caring. All of our questions and concerns were answered promptly, and she always made us feel at ease.

    I can't recommend her enough to you reading this review and friends that need of a good immigration attorney.

    Gracias Moumita and Violet! :)

      My husband and I have had a wonderful experience working with Moumita through the process of getting a green card, and we look forward to working with her again while we pursue my husband's citizenship. Moumita and her team are thoughtful and responsive, and will always make time to discuss any concerns or write a rapid response to an email. She is always able to help and offer a solution, even when you encounter an unusual speed bump during a process (for us that was an incorrect expiration date printed on the card we received). Moumita is personable, knowledgeable, responsible and a true professional. We highly recommend working with her. Thank you Moumita.
