IMMIGRATION SERVICE

Asylum

One of the things we hold most dearly at the Law Firm of Moumita Rahman is the belief that we all have an inalienable right to express our political opinions, practice our religions, and take pride in our social and ethnic backgrounds without fear of repercussion from the government. However, not all governments hold these to be inalienable rights, and not all governments are able to protect persons facing a fear of persecution and retaliation because of their race, religion, political opinion, ethnicity, or membership in a particular social group.

If an individual has fled their home country due to past persecution or fear of future persecution due to their race, religion, nationality, political beliefs, or membership in a particular social group, they may apply for asylum. Applicants must apply for asylum within one year of entering the United States, or show that an extreme or significantly changed circumstance caused them to apply after more than one year. Applicants must also show that they could not have reasonably relocated to another part of their home country in order to avoid persecution.

Once a person applies for asylum, they can be granted Lawful Permanent Resident status, or a green card. They can also apply for work authorization in the United States, and the ability to travel outside the United States to countries other than the country from which they fled. Once a green card is obtained, asylum applicants can petition for their family members to obtain permanent resident status as well.

We have successfully helped obtain asylum for so many people in need. Please give us a call if you are in need of assistance.

  •   I can't say enough on Yelp about the quality of work that Moumita provides. She has become more than just our lawyer in the past few years we have worked with her. She is dedicated and extremely well informed. She keeps herself open so if you need to reach her she's easily accessible. Moumita is definitely ready to dedicate all she has to win your case and help you. She has given me her complete attention whenever it was needed and I'm happy that I went with my initial recommendation of Moumita and I won't ever have to look for any other lawyer.

      Moumita helped me with my legal options pertaining to my immigration status. Working with her was such wonderful experience as she was very knowledgeable, supportive, professional and effective. She took her time to explain the process and made sure I understood what choices I had and how to best achieve the optimal outcome; going out of her way to make sure that things was as smooth and cost effective as possible for her client. Can highly recommend her to future clients!

      Having worked with Attorney Rahman for several months, I can genuinely say that it was a wonderful experience. I learned a great deal from her and am now able to apply this new knowledge going forward. She was always very patient and professional to both employee and client alike. One of the many reasons clients sought her out was based on her in-depth knowledge of immigration, as well as bankruptcy law.  But that was not all - she is highly referred and recommended!  On many an occasion, while handling firm calls, there was always someone on the other end with great things to say. If it was a potential client, either they were referred by a friend who had a successful experience with Attorney Rahman - or - they had read many of her 5 star reviews and really wanted her to work on their case. If it was an existing client, there was always a word of praise about the excellent work she was doing on their case.  I also had the pleasure of receiving my own share of compliments, primarily due to the fact that Attorney Rahman never kept a client waiting, and I carried out the same service as part of the firm culture. It was refreshing to work with Attorney Rahman. She clearly reflected to her clients - new and existing - that respect was high on her list. Her genuine passion for every case she takes on and her attention, and responsiveness to each, really makes her very rare, especially in the fields of immigration and bankruptcy law. Without a doubt, I would recommend her and know that, from working experience with her, she is honest, hardworking and will give your case the attention it needs for a successful outcome.

  •   We contacted Moumita on the recommendation of a friend when my wife and I got married and needed to adjust her status.  Moumita has gone above and beyond my expectation in regards to accessibility, responsibility and clarity.  She has been friendly and calm through what we worried would be a stressful process, but when she needs to be that sharp talking walking encyclopedia lawyer who knows all the ins and outs of her field, she can turn on a dime and be just that!

      My husband and I consulted with Moumita regarding my green card application. I was very impressed with Moumita's composure and calm. I myself was not very calm during certain parts of the rather stressful process and would send her multiple one off emails with questions that she always responded to very quickly. I really appreciated her guidance through the complex and bureaucratic process. She's also extremely reasonably priced given her expertise and responsiveness.

      My experience with Ms. Moumita Rahman was more then amazing.
    I contacted her regarding my immigration case last minute since my previous lawyer didn't represented me in my best interest.
    From the moment I contacted her and disgussed my situation with her, she made me feel very comfortable due to her incredible knowledge and kindness.
    During the process Ms. Rahman always kept me up to date which made things easy and pleasent.
    I cannot thank Ms Rahman enough for the outstanding work she has done for me.
    I am so glad I chose her to represent me in my rather difficult case.
    She is outstanding in her work and is overall such a wonderful person.  I am greatful to have had her as my lawyer
    I highly recommend Ms. Rahman
