Could filing for bankruptcy save me from foreclosure?

Being confronted by the prospect of foreclosure can be incredibly troubling, as you have probably been dealing with financial challenges and struggling to pay your mortgage for some time. Foreclosure often seems like a final decision, which provides you as a borrower with few options for any kind of debt relief. Fortunately, though, there are options for keeping your home even after you have been served a foreclosure notice by your mortgage lender.

Recognizing the complexities of real estate law and disputes

Despite the fact that a huge number of Miami residents engage in real estate transactions without formal legal counsel, the process is often long and quite involved. If you are interested in purchasing your first home, for instance, you may be unfamiliar with how to approach the huge number of issues that can arise over real estate contract interpretation and enforcement. You could also face legal difficulties if you are not well-versed in your legal rights and obligations as a commercial real estate owner at the time of selling your property. We here at Cuevas, Garcia & Torres, P.A., provide our clients with comprehensive legal guidance when dealing with any number of real estate transactions and/or disputes.

Florida experiencing influx of Puerto Rican migrants

While there are many reasons for people choosing to leave their native countries, economic issues and lack of employment force countless people to migrate every year. Political instability in their homeland is also a major factor in people’s decision to seek U.S. citizenship. All of these factors are coming into play as more and more Puerto Ricans are moving to the mainland and choosing the call Florida home.

Illegal immigration and medical repatriation

While immigration reform continues to prompt heated debate from Florida residents and politicians alike, countless people across the country live day-to-day under the threat of deportation. Concerns over deportation and being separated from family in the U.S. dictate many people’s decisions regarding everything from their employment options to living arrangements, and immigration status can even play a role in the type and level of medical care that undocumented immigrants receive.

Operating condominiums and cooperatives in the Miami region

We here at the law offices of Cuevas, Garcia & Torres, P.A., understand that managing condominium associations can be a complex and difficult process, as you and other management entities can be confronted by any number of legal concerns. In addition to supervising association services and operations, your condominium management organization must be familiar with collections procedures and other policies relating to tenant agreements and disputes. It is for that reason that we encourage our clients to always be aware of Florida guidelines regarding condominium associations.

What is included on the naturalization test?

Achieving American citizenship status is by far one of the most important things that you and other immigrants can do in your life. Not only may becoming a U.S. citizen have a huge impact on your future but it may also affect your family for generations to come. That is why it is so crucial to understand the various components of the naturalization interview and test process.

Understanding adjustment of status processes

If you or a loved one is currently living in the United States with temporary or nonimmigrant status, it is important to understand whether and how you can achieve permanent residency. Fortunately, adjustment of status can allow for you to file for green card residency without necessarily having to leave the country. Beyond that, the process provides options for those living outside of the country and/or who are not eligible to adjust their immigration status. It is important to note, however, that adjustment of status processes can be rather complex. That is why the attorneys at Cuevas, Garcia & Torres, P.A., are committed to educating our clients on all of the residency options available to them.

Recent report sheds light on state of Florida foreclosures

Despite the fact that state and national news sources are beginning to regularly report on signs of economic improvement, many Florida residents continue to live under the burden of debt. Countless families are still living paycheck to paycheck, and a considerable percentage of people are still feeling the effects of the recession and housing bubble bust. Bankruptcy and foreclosure rates reflect the financial challenges that a huge number of families are confronted by on a day-to-day basis. Beyond that, they can serve as a sobering reminder that national figures do not always reflect the realities faced by individual states.

Cuban immigrants are subject to special green card law

With the relationship between the United States and Cuba beginning to thaw, one of the implications could be changes to the American immigration policy toward Cuban citizens looking to live in the U.S. permanently. Currently, the ability for Cuban nationals to gain green card status in the U.S. is governed by the Cuban Adjustment Act of 1996.

Slowly, undocumented immigrants enlisting in Army for citizenship

As President Obama’s executive orders on U.S. immigration policy continue to be debated, one perhaps lesser-known aspect of the change in the law has resulted in 46 undocumented immigrants enlisting in the military. This puts them on the path to citizenship, and the Army wants more such recruits.

Bills would change condo termination rules in Florida

Back on March 20, we discussed how Florida law allows a single party to decide unilaterally to terminate a condominium association, if that party owns at least 80 percent of the condo’s units. Many investment companies do this in order to sell off the condo so it can be converted into rental housing.
