Legal fight over immigration executive order continues

No matter where Florida residents stand on immigration reform, no one can deny that thousands upon thousands of lives across the country are directly impacted by deportation guidelines every year. In addition to those people who may be deported from the U.S., many of whom are parents, U.S. immigration law also affects countless children who are living in the country legally. It is for that reason that so many people are personally invested in the legal dispute revolving around President Obama’s executive action to implement immigration reform.

What does foreclosure fraud look like?

If you and your family are facing serious financial difficulties, you may be facing the unfortunate prospect of foreclosure.

Considering your nonimmigrant visa options

Your intentions for entering the U.S. play a major role in the type of immigration authorization that you are required to apply for.

It is also important to keep in mind that the type and nature of your work can dictate the kind of nonimmigrant visa that you should apply for. We here at Cuevas, Garcia & Torres, P.A., are willing and able to help our clients navigate the nonimmigrant visa application process, and choose the option that is right for them.

The Florida Senate outlines statutes regarding condominium association operations and management.

What are my legal rights and responsibilities as a landlord?

No matter if you own a condominium or apartment, renting a private space to another party makes you a landlord under the law.

What if I have a fence dispute with a Miami neighbor?

Many people take it for granted that their property lines are clearly marked by fencing and/or landscaping.
