Divorce, domestic violence and immigration

If you have moved to the U.S. and obtained a green card through marriage, you may have various questions and worries if you are thinking about leaving your spouse for any reason. However, if you have been subjected to domestic violence, it is important to understand your rights as well as the immigration laws that will affect you. At Cuevas, Garcia & Torres, we know how stressful and confusing this may be for people in Miami-Dade, and all of Florida’s other areas.

False accusations of marriage fraud

From infidelity to disagreements over how to raise children, couples file for divorce over a number of reasons. For some, suspected marriage fraud may be the reason the couple splits up. If you immigrated to the U.S. through marriage, you may have a wide variety of questions if your spouse or someone else is accusing you of tying the knot solely to move to Miami, Florida, or another U.S. city. At Cuevas, Garcia & Torres, our firm recognizes the incredible stress people in this position endure and we also know that some people are falsely accused of marriage fraud.

Do I need to pay estate taxes if I have a green card?

From missing family members who live in another country to completing paperwork, you may have been through a number of challenges if you obtained a green card in the U.S. However, it is important to be aware of any obligations you may have, such as estate taxes. In Florida, and all other states, people who have green cards and do not realize these types of commitments may face harsh penalties.

Can I have the conditions of my green card removed?

Every year, people become permanent residents in the U.S. through marriage. However, obtaining a green card by tying the knot will result in a conditional resident status. If you live in Miami, Florida, or anywhere else in the country, you may be able to have the conditions of your green card removed, so long as you meet certain requirements. If you meet these requirements, you could be able to successfully remove these conditions by submitting Form I-751.

Helping family members become permanent residents

Each year, people immigrate to the U.S. for a wide variety of reasons. While some head to the country because of an investment or employment opportunity, others may move to the U.S. because of their marriage or for other family-oriented purposes. In Miami-Dade, and all other Florida locales, some people may concerns about other family members moving to the U.S. For example, someone who is an American citizen may wish to have a parent, child or spouse currently living in another nation obtain a green card. Under these circumstances, understanding all of the requirements is vital.

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.

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.

Report finds that immigration agency made thousands of mistakes

Whether someone is applying for a green card or they are already a permanent resident in the U.S., a number of challenges may arise. For example, someone may have their application denied or even delayed because of paperwork errors that were not their fault. In Miami-Dade, Florida, and across the nation, it is crucial for those who are submitting any type of immigration-related application to ensure that the information they provide is accurate to avoid complications.

The benefits of becoming a permanent resident

Each year, people across the country are able to finally realize their dream of obtaining a green card in the U.S. For green card holders, becoming a permanent resident offers a number of advantages. In Miami-Dade, and cities throughout Florida, it is vital for current and prospective green card holders to make sure they renew or apply for their card correctly.
