Environmental protection agency facing real estate disputes

The Florida Everglades are a fragile ecosystem. Based on this fragility, the Department of Environmental Protection denied a landowner permission to conduct exploratory drilling there. That decision led to real estate disputes that are now headed for oral arguments under appeal.

Father and son facing US immigration law problems

People who know a 47-year-old man who was living in a church basement in another state say he was merely doing what he had to do to be with his wife, who is extremely ill and in need of heart surgery. There are likely immigrants living in Florida who are worried about similar issues. This particular man was working on obtaining an adjustment of status when he wound up getting arrested. 

Thinking ahead may help avoid foreclosure problems

Many Florida property owners are currently facing significant financial challenges. This is not uncommon, as most Floridians go through ups and downs in their personal economic statuses, just like people in other states who own property. While it is true that some situations are worse than others, it is also true that prompt and pertinent action can often help get things back on track before a property is lost to foreclosure.

Seeking adjustment of status after a violent crime

Before the year is over, many Florida residents will become victims of violent crimes. Sadly, some will experience violence in their own households. When a victim of violence happens to be an immigrant who may otherwise not be eligible for permanent residency, it may be possible to file an application for an adjustment of status based on his or her current circumstances.  

Real estate disputes often involve boundaries

There may Florida property owners facing legal problems at this time regarding boundary lines. Numerous boundary issues can prompt real estate disputes, especially if a situation arises where a land survey will not resolve the problem. To avoid such problems, however, it is always a good idea to order an updated land survey before erecting a fence or other structure near a neighboring property in order to determine an accurate boundary line.

Did loss of income lead to a threat of foreclosure?

There are many reasons that Florida homeowners may be unable to meet their monthly mortgage payments. Some have been hit with medical bills due to chronic adverse health situations or medical emergencies. Others have gone through divorce and are struggling to financially recover. While most financial crises are temporary, such problems can have far-reaching consequences, such as causing a homeowner to face the threat of foreclosure.

US immigration law: Advocates call for an end to detention

Immigration is a topic that often incites contentious debate. One issue that many Florida residents feel strongly about is immigrant detention. Many families are currently facing legal problems regarding pending removal proceedings. Many people who advocate on behalf of immigrants say immigrant detention should no longer be allowed under U.S. immigration law.

Real estate disputes erupt regarding home renovations

Some people in Florida make profits by buying old homes, renovating them, then relisting them on the real estate market. A man in another state has been in the process of updating a home he purchased for $32,000 cash some time ago. Progress on the project has been delayed by unexpected real estate disputes, which the man says he does not quite understand.

Man sent to dentention while seeking adjustment of status

Florida readers may relate to an ongoing immigration situation involving threat of removal. In January, a man who had emigrated from another country of origin was submitting an application for citizenship at the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services center in another state. He was seeking an adjustment of status, but the application process did not go as planned. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers took him into custody in connection with a 2010 deportation order.
