What happens when U.S. immigration law and state law conflict?

Florida is home to many immigrants who came to the United States in search of better lives for themselves and their families. Many are able to fulfill their dreams of obtaining gainful employment, buying homes and building successful lifestyles here. Others, however, wind up facing serious challenges regarding U.S. immigration law, in particular those whose statuses are not secure.

Real estate disputes often involve millions of dollars

In a state north of Florida, there's a contentious battle occurring between two building owners. Real estate disputes like this one often necessitate repeated visits to courtrooms and are often very stressful. It appears this one may finally be over, however, as an appellate court has upheld a $3.9 million payout.

Basic information regarding adjustment of status in the U.S.

Florida, like just about every other state in the nation, is home to tens of thousands of immigrants. Many face significant challenges in their everyday lives, based on their immigration backgrounds. Some desire an adjustment of status (which may make their living situations less stressful) but aren't sure how to begin the process.

Adjustment of Status: What is a request for evidence?

When an immigrant wishes to reside and/or work in Florida, there are often very complex processes that must be navigated. With regard to an adjustment of status, complications may arise to cause delays on (or, even dismiss) an application. For instance, a Request for Evidence (RFE) can really slow things down.

Foreclosure not always a given when facing financial problems

Many Florida residents understand the panic that sets in when facing serious financial trouble. Realizing one is in such a situation to begin with rarely occurs immediately. This is because many financial problems develop over time from an accumulation of circumstances. However, most people start to worry when lenders mention words like foreclosure.

Evicting a tenant due to unlawful drug activity

Landlords encounter many different challenges, some of which have been discussed on this blog.

However, it may also become necessary to evict a tenant over drug-related activity that is against the law.

What should immigrants know about language-based discrimination?

If you have immigrated to the U.S. for work, or have plans to relocate in order to pursue a job opportunity, there are a number of things you need to take care of and recognize, from the immigration process to adjusting your life after relocating. In Miami, and in all of the cities in Florida, it is pivotal to make sure that your rights are not violated during the immigration process or in the workplace once you have settled down. For example, you may want to review language-based discrimination if you believe you have experienced it firsthand or are concerned it may affect you.

Real estate disputes and divorce

On this blog, we have gone over many of the different types of real estate disputes that arise. However, we are aware that there are additional unique circumstances which arise, such as a married couple going through divorce, that can lead to additional complications related to this area of law.

Back rent reportedly leads to Florida assault

For those who are struggling with a tenant that misses rent payments, it can be difficult trying to figure out how to handle the situation. Sometimes, emotions run high and landlords become very upset about back rent, which is understandable since missed rent payments can lead to serious financial difficulties and generate a great deal of anxiety. However, in Miami-Dade, and across all cities in Florida, landlords who are struggling with these issues should do their best to work things out properly and avoid additional complications.
