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 saw the ad all over the place and when I called them they telling me that they will not take my case because required a lot attention. Why advertise when you can't take care of clients and your not available, that's unprofessional.
    What kind of lawer they are ? What a joke lawer. Don't waist your time with this  up-professional lawyers,

      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 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.
