H-1Bs and Petitions for Workers

Here at the Law Firm of Moumita Rahman, we have successfully helped obtain hundreds of temporary worker visas in numerous different categories. These visas are considered “non-immigrant” visas because they are granted for a limited period of time, and are not permanent. Please read below for the main non-immigrant visa categories we have helped clients with:

  • H-1B Visa

An H-1B Visa is a visa for Specialty Occupation Workers In order to qualify as a specialty occupation, the position must require a body of specialized knowledge in addition to a Bachelor’s degree or the equivalent in that field. The government puts a cap on the amount of H-1B visas granted every year.

The E-2 Visa is for Treaty Investors. A person may enter the United States using this visa in order to develop and direct the operations of an enterprise in which they have invested. Employees of Treaty Investors who perform duties that require special qualifications and are essential to the business may also obtain an E visa. These employees must have the same nationality as the alien employer and their home country must have a treaty with the United States.

  •   After having consulted with other immigration lawyers, it was Moumita and her team the choice we picked for our immigration journey. I felt like they took their time to understand our case and made us felt at ease immediately. 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
