Man's struggle for adjustment of status through asylum not over

There are currently many immigrants in Florida facing serious problems related to threat of deportation. They may relate to the story of a man and his son who are fighting a similar adjustment of status battle in another state. Their situation began when the father, a news reporter, fled his country of origin in fear for his life.

Adjustment of status changes may impact many in Russia

Some time ago, Russia cut the number of people working on a U.S. diplomatic missions staff there. The United States countered the move by halting the non-immigrant visa program throughout the Russia. Many people in Florida arrived here with non-immigrant visas. Not having this type of adjustment of status available would likely affect hundreds of thousands of people in this state and elsewhere.

Man worried about adjustment of status following recent fires

Many Florida residents have been closely following news regarding recent devastation on the West Coast caused by wildfires. The situation has negatively impacted many lives, especially those of undocumented immigrants. While one may not immediately associate adjustment of status problems with national disasters, such as the wildfires, closer analysis of the situation may make the connection quite apparent.

Adjustment of status may be possible for immigrant after all

A young immigrant whose story went viral after he complained about mistreatment by detention officials was recently scheduled to be freed. The 20-year-old is disabled due to a leg amputation. He claimed that immigration detention officers who did not know he understood English were making fun of him, saying they were going to insert a broom handle into his leg and use him to sweep the floor. Unfortunately, there has been an adjustment of status in the man's situation due to revocation of his work permit.

Man deported instead of receiving adjustment of status

Many Florida immigrants have been living in the United States under a temporary protection legal status. When the program that provides the status was effectively ended by the current presidential administration, thousands of immigrants in this state and throughout the nation began to worry whether adjustment of status would be possible or if they would get deported. One man, whose protected status was supposed to last until 2019, was recently detained by immigration officials.

Determining whether adjustment of status may be possible

Many Florida immigrants want to become permanent residents of the United States, but think they must first go abroad, then apply for re-entry. That process is known as consular processing, and it is not always necessary. Those currently residing in the United States who wish to seek an adjustment of status can confer with an immigration law attorney to explore all possible options given a particular situation. 

Is giving adjustment of status advice a crime in Florida?

What if two Florida neighbors are having a conversation over their backyard fence and one mentions that he and his family have been living in the United States illegally for more than 10 years. What if the man further discusses the situation with his neighbor by asking for advice regarding whether he should seek an adjustment of status or remain living under the radar. If the neighbor weighs in on the topic and advises the man and his family to continue living as they have been, is the neighbor guilty of a crime?

Will adjustment of status program soon come to an end?

Many undocumented Florida immigrants are waiting on pins and needles for word as to whether the federal Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program will be discarded. It helps anyone eligible to secure an adjustment of status to avoid deportation and obtain permission to live and work in the United States. Once approved, the protected status is typically good for two years, at which time renewal must be sought.

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.
