Employment Immigration and discrimination

According to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, employers are prohibited from discriminating against staff on the basis of their immigration or citizenship status. Regrettably, many workers have experienced illegal discrimination in Miami-Dade, and across the country. At Cuevas, Garcia & Torres, P.A., we firmly believe that workplace discrimination is unacceptable and those who violate the law must be held responsible.

Suit filed in Miami-Dade County over condominium fees

For those who operate a condominium association, various challenges may arise. For example, an association may become involved in a dispute for a myriad of reasons or struggle with the collection of association fees. In Miami-Dade, and all across the state of Florida, it is crucial for condo associations to carefully assess the details surrounding any problems they are facing. By managing an association and handling any legal issues or disputes properly, condo associations can avoid some serious consequences.

For anyone facing foreclosure, daily life can feel overwhelming. To make things even worse, many property owners in this position are even more stressed out because of the potential impact a foreclosure may have on children, customers and other people. In Miami-Dade, and around the rest of Florida, any legal issue involving real estate can cause anxiety, sleep loss and a myriad of other problems related to this uncertainty. However, these problems can be especially difficult when it comes to foreclosures.

Florida families told to leave unsafe apartment building

When it comes to real estate matters, there are times when difficult decisions have to be made.

For both parties, understanding where the law stands and taking steps to avoid unnecessary complications is very important.

Do H1-B workers have rights in the workplace?

Whether you are preparing to obtain a work visa or are already working in the U.S. with an H1-B visa, it is very important to understand your rights. If you live in Miami, or any of Florida's cities, there are a number of circumstances where recognizing your rights will come in handy. For example, if you suffer an injury at work, you may depend on certain benefits to move forward.

Miam-Dade saw more foreclosures than other South Florida counties

Over the past decade, a number of developments have created problems for homeowners in South Florida. In Miami-Dade and neighboring regions, the housing crash of 2008 was particularly devastating for some homeowners, leading to a large number of foreclosures. In the years since, some may have struggled to find work or experienced other financial setbacks which keep them from making mortgage payments on time.

What is the Diversity Immigrant Visa Program?

If you wish to obtain a green card in the U.S., you may have a variety of options. For example, you may be able to become a permanent resident as a result of a job you have in Miami-Dade, Florida, or anywhere else in the country. However, you may want to familiarize yourself with other options, such as the Diversity Immigrant Visa Program.

Becoming a U.S. citizen at birth

Whether someone obtains U.S. citizenship after getting married or moving to the country for work, there are a multitude of ways that people become citizens. In Miami-Dade, and across the whole state of Florida, many people become citizens at the time they are born. However, parents may have numerous questions related to citizenship at birth and it is imperative for them to find answers.

Investment firm defaults on loan for office buildings

When many people envision a foreclosure, they picture a struggling homeowner who cannot afford to make mortgage payments. However, foreclosures can also have a significant impact on businesses and the people they employ. In Miami-Dade, and all throughout Florida, business owners who can no longer afford to make payments on a loan they took out to purchase commercial property may lose everything they have worked for, which underlines the importance of handling foreclosure matters appropriately.

Reviewing the green card renewal process

If your green card is about to expire, it is crucial to renew the card as soon as you can. In Miami, Florida, and throughout the U.S., failure to renew a green card may result in various consequences. For example, you may run into problems if you travel internationally or you could have difficulty securing a job. At Cuevas, Garcia & Torres, P.A., we understand that there are different reasons why people may fail to renew their green card, but it is vital to complete the renewal process prior to the expiration date.

Landlord wants state laws to change

When a landlord decides to rent his or her property, they likely do not expect to have a standoff with tenants over the premises. Unfortunately, disputes between landlords and their tenants frequently arise in Miami-Dade and all over Florida. Whether a tenant refuses to pay rent or breaks the terms of the rental agreement, landlords should not allow their rights to be trampled upon.
