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.

  •   After having consulted with other immigration lawyers, it was Moumita and her team the choice we picked for our immigration journey.

Their service is personalized, they don't make you feel rushed and it makes it really comfortable to ask questions. We're really thankf

      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 wife and I had the pleasure of working with Moumita for my wife's green card. Moumita was a tremendous help to us as she is patient, caring and informative. She went through every scenario that could happen and was straightforward about what to work on prior to the meeting which made us feel confident for when the day came. Anytime my wife had a question, Moumita would get right back to her which kept the whole process less stressful. I would definitely recommend Moumita for anyone who needs help with a green card. My wife and I are grateful for her and you will be too.

      I found The Law Firm of Moumita Rahman office here, so I thought it would be important to help other people who are looking for a great lawyer.

    After having some free and paid consultations with some lawyers, I decided to have Moumita working in my case because she was the most thoughtful, polite, prepared and competent professional.

    My first impression during my consultation with Ms. Moumita was that she was treating me as a person and not only as another case. She cared about me and my situation.

    Besides that, Ms. Moumita and her assistant Violet are very responsible and organized. I am always aware of what is happening in my case and they are always open to answer my questions.

    I highly recommend The Law Firm of Moumita Rahman office!!!

      Moumita is working on my immigration case and she's literally the best. I have recommended her to many of my friends. She responded every email on timely manner, she's there whenever I needed her, and I recently got hired by new employer but my green card expired already, she reviewed all I-9 rules carefully, made appointments for me to Uscis. And makes sure I take every step correctly. Moumita really  cares about your case, and handles all your things on a very timely, accurately and professional way.
    Moumita and her assistant are reliable, caring and extremely professional. - Bingbing
