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.

Can I work in the U.S. on a tourist visa?

From sightseeing to spending time with family members and friends, people travel to the U.S. for many reasons. If you are planning on entering the United States with a tourist visa, it is important to understand your responsibilities and find answers to any of your questions, whether they have to do with employment or are related to other immigration issues. In Miami, Florida, some visitors who were unaware of certain aspects of immigration law have found themselves in trouble.

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.

Condo prices fall in Miami

When it comes to condos, there are all sorts of considerations for owners as well as prospective buyers. From the location of a unit to association services, there are many points for people in Miami to consider regarding condos. However, it is pivotal for people to follow developments in the South Florida condo market if they plan on selling or purchasing a condo in the region. After all, waiting until the right time to buy or sell a condo can have a tremendous financial impact on those involved.

Applying for an EB-5 visa

From tourist visas to H1-B visas, people decide to enter the United States for a multitude of reasons. If you are an investor who hopes to relocate to the U.S., you may be interested in obtaining an EB-5 visa. Whether you plan to invest in a Miami venture, or any other business in Florida, it is vital to approach the application process correctly. At Cuevas, Garcia & Torres, P.A., our law firm understands how complicated the process may seem.

Animal bites and other issues landlords encounter

If you have tenants, you may run into a number of problems, such as a tenant's failure to pay rent on time or damage to the property you own. At Cuevas, Garcia & Torres, we are also aware of other stressful matters that landlords may find themselves in the middle of, such as animal bites. In Miami-Dade, it is important for landlords in this position to review their rights and responsibilities under Florida law.

Southwest Florida saw decline in foreclosures during 2016

Like the stock market, the foreclosure rate goes up and down and depends on a smorgasbord of factors. Also, foreclosures can have serious consequences for those who own a home and even some who rent property. When it comes to foreclosure, entire families may have their lives spun upside down, which underlines how vital it is for people to approach foreclosure properly. In Miami, and elsewhere in Florida, the way that people handle foreclosures and the outcome of foreclosure actions can have a significant impact on their futures.

Proposed legislation aims to change H-1B program

For those who move to a new country to find work, many challenges can arise. Aside from financial hurdles, working through the application process, adjusting to life and leaving behind family members and friends, some people may encounter problems due to changing laws. Whether someone is planning on moving to Miami-Dade for a job, or any other Florida locale, it is essential for them to be aware of their rights as well as their responsibilities and do whatever they can to handle any problems appropriately.

Dealing with divorce and foreclosure

When people find themselves in the middle of a foreclosure, life can be challenging. Unfortunately, this is often even more true for those who are going through a divorce as well. As if splitting up with your spouse does not make life hard enough, you may have even more anxiety over a foreclosure. At Cuevas, Garcia & Torres, P.A., we understand how troubling these hurdles can be for families in Miami-Dade, and all other Florida cities.

Immigration issues and splitting up with a spouse

If you and your spouse are planning on filing for divorce, a wide variety of legal issues may affect you, such as property division and child support obligations. However, divorce could also have an impact on you or your spouse's residence status or raise other concerns related to immigration. At Cuevas, Garcia & Torres, we know how difficult these challenges can be for those who live in Miami and we believe that people in this position deserve a voice.

Are immigrants protected by the EEOC?

Whether you are considering moving to the United States on a work visa or are already employed in the country, it is very important for you to understand your rights in the workplace as an immigrant. In Miami-Dade, and across the rest of Florida, some immigrants have been subjected to on-the-job discrimination and other employee rights violations. When employers violate the law, they should not be allowed to get away with their actions.
