Family Immigration Attorneys
United States Immigration Law allows citizens and lawful permanent residents
to sponsor relatives for immigration visas, so that they may join family
members in America. Both the applicant and sponsor must complete applications.
Eligibility is determined by the relation to the permanent resident or citizen.

based on the relation of the applicant and sponsor, each requiring different
application procedures. The expert immigration team at Rama Law &
Associates, P.C. will help make your family whole by steering you through
the entire process.
The dream of becoming a full-fledged American citizen is a dream for many
immigrants, as well as one of the most contentious political issues of
our time. While immigration reform and a reformed legal pathway to citizenship
is likely to happen over the next few years, laws right now are arcane.
Immigrants must meet a large number of requirements before they can even
apply for citizenship. The application process is long and arduous. An
experienced immigration attorney is an important partner to have. Rama

In 2012, the United States Department of Homeland Security changed the
rules on how the United States handles immigrants who enter America as
children. Under these new guidelines, people who meet specific criteria
have the right to request consideration for a deferred action period of
two years. This period can be renewed, and the applicant becomes eligible
for work authorization. The process for applying for deferred action can
be extremely complicated. Fortunately, you have found a partner who can
streamline the process for you.
I-9 Compliance & Audits
To comply with current US Immigration Law, employers are required to verify
both the identity and employment authorization of each person who they
hire, and retain a copy of form I-9 on file for each employee. This form
is designed to ensure that all employees are authorized and eligible to
work within the borders of the United States.
When an employer hires a person without complying with the necessary employment
eligibility verification requirements, the employer is in violation of
employer sanctions laws and could be subjected to civil & criminal
penalties, loss of eligibility for government contracts, and other sanctions.
Rama Law & Associates, P.C. have vast experience helping employers
of all sizes remain compliant with I-9 regulations. We can conduct exhaustive
audits which can save your business thousands of dollars in revenue and
