U.S. immigration law crackdown leaves family devastated

A 14-year-old boy was preparing for his first game as a member of a football team. He was beyond excited that his father would be there to watch. Those plans sunk into oblivion, however, when the family's day unfolded in a way much different than they'd planned. The father ran into major problems with U.S. immigration law officials regarding his undocumented status. Many immigrants in Florida face similar problems.

Is there an obstacle impeding your adjustment of status process?

If there's one topic that often incites contentious debate in political and social settings, it's immigration and naturalization law. In Florida and beyond, it seems no matter where you go, you can find people at odds in their opinions regarding various issues pertaining to adjustment of status or other immigration issues in the United States. Laws often change, making it difficult for immigrants to remain updated and avoid complications when attempting to file applications for visas or citizenship.

Foreclosure impacts all income levels, including celebrities

Many Florida residents have encountered challenging financial times. Sometimes, all it takes is a few months of being financially off track for a minor problem to turn into a full-blown crisis. Some right their ship before things get out of hand. For others, problems like foreclosure threaten life as they know it. Many financial problems are temporary provided those affected know where to seek debt relief support.

Real estate disputes regarding home value estimates online

Anyone who has ever bought or sold a home in Florida or elsewhere knows how complicated and stressful it can be. Any number of legal issues may arise between prospective buyers and sellers, some more easily resolved than others. A recent situation has developed into full blown real estate disputes with a lawsuit filed against the Zillow Group company.

US immigration law situation heats up

Florida immigrants may be among others who are concerned about a recent sweep of detentions that occurred in the nation. Some say U.S. immigration law officials appear to be targeting a particular group of people. It seems all those detained throughout the nation had one thing in common: They are immigrant activists.

Complex real estate disputes affecting coffee shop business

Florida coffee lovers are always on the lookout for local shops serving great brews. They would likely be disappointed to learn that a favorite shop was in danger of closing. That is just what is happening in another state where ongoing real estate disputes have threatened the future of a coffee shop business.

Adjustment of status high priority for many Salvadorans

In Florida and throughout the nation, there are currently more than a quarter million immigrants from El Salvador living in the United States under temporary protected legal statuses. Most of these immigrants, among hundreds of thousands of others from other countries, fled to the U.S. following natural disasters or other emergency situations that made it unsafe to return to their countries of origin. It was recently announced that the program providing the temporary legal status may be coming to an end, and those affected are encouraged to seek an adjustment of status while there's still time.

Real estate disputes prompt Supreme Court appeal in another state

Many Florida residents have encountered problems with their neighbors that have, at times, escalated into legal battles, which, in turn, have led to litigation. Real estate disputes can be quite complex and difficult to resolve without experienced legal assistance. A man in another state may know this all too well as he wound up serving six months in jail when the court convicted him of a crime on his own property.

Are there options available to help you avoid foreclosure?

Many Florida residents have begun to implement new financial plans for 2018. Some are right on track with their pre-existing plans and simply want to keep the ball rolling. Others, however, are facing dire financial crises and have been threatened with foreclosure on their homes. It is understandable that such situations often cause stress levels to soar as worrying about losing one's home can be emotionally traumatic.

Man faces U.S. immigration law trouble again

An incident occurred at a border in the United States that resulted in a man's arrest. This particular man is said to have been in trouble with U.S. immigration law officials in the past. In fact, he reportedly served more than 10 years behind bars after being convicted of assault. Many Florida immigrants understand how stressful such situations can be.

Citizenship might be possible for previous DACA recipients

Kirstjen Nielsen, the U.S. Homeland Security Secretary said no official decisions have been made yet by the White House regarding the future legal statuses of certain immigrants in the United States. Much speculation has circulated regarding possible citizenship for those in Florida and elsewhere previously protected under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA). Since the current administration's announcement that it plans to do away with the program, many immigrants and immigrant advocates have been worried about possible increases in deportations throughout the nation.

Famous brothers each dealing with recent foreclosure issues

Most people in Florida (and anywhere for that matter) would agree that 34,000 square feet makes for quite an expansive home. In fact, one of the largest private homes in this state is apparently that size and belongs to Ronald "Slim" Williams, brother of rap star, Bryan "Birdman" Williams. The brother have each recently faced foreclosure problems on their homes.
