Asylum Granted, Protracted Sexual Abuse

Mooradian's client, a young person from Central America, was recently granted asylum after a trial before the Boston Immigration Court.  Following a three hour trial, the immigration judge decided to grant humanitarian asylum to the client based upon the severity of the past persecution the client had endured and the other serious harm they would face if forced to return to their country of origin. In this case, Attorney Mooradian argued numerous particulary social groups, including disability, imputed gender, sexuality, and being a witness of corruption. Following testimony, Mooradian relied on humanitarian asylum law in his closing.  The Court agreed and granted humanitarian asylum, meaning that the client may remain in the United States indefinitely with the ability to work and travel.  In addition, one year after the completion of this matter, the client becomes eligible to apply for adjustment of status to that of a lawful permanent resident.
