Florida woman facing foreclosure problems re home improvements

In the past several years, Florida homeowners and others across the country have learned how dangerous it can be to not have air conditioning in times of natural disaster. If power goes out and homeowners are located in areas where climate temperatures are high, not having air conditioning can pose an immediate life-threatening hazard. One woman applied for a loan program offered in this state to help people obtain funds for home improvements such as air conditioning in order to better protect themselves from hazardous conditions during natural disasters. The problem is that this woman is now facing threat of foreclosure from the company that installed her air conditioning system.

Man who sought adjustment of status was willing to work for food

There are many privately-run immigration detention centers in Florida and throughout the United States. Many immigrants say they have suffered personal rights violations after seeking an adjustment of status and then being placed in detention facilities. A 25-year-old man says the amount of food officials were providing during his detention left him suffering perpetual hunger pangs.

Real estate disputes over fences: It is not uncommon

There are various styles of homes and communities in Florida. Some homeowners have expansive properties where large amounts of acreage is spread between themselves and their neighbors. Others live property line to property line, and real estate disputes can erupt if homeowners disagree about fences, shrubs or other issues.

Citizenship did not stop ICE from detaining US marine

Florida mothers of U.S. marines are proud of their sons and daughters who serve their country with courage and valor. A proud mother in another state is feeling frustrated and angry because her son, who served in Afghanistan, was taken to an immigration detention center by Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers even though he has full citizenship. In fact, the young man was born and raised in the United States.

Threat of foreclosure does not necessarily lead to home loss

You may be one of many Florida residents who are currently having a tough time regarding your finances. Perhaps you lost a job or someone in your household has experienced a medical situation that requires surgery or treatments you weren't expecting, thus prompting expenses you are unprepared to meet. When financial situations get out of hand, homeowners often face a threat of foreclosure.

Florida judges often intervene to resolve real estate disputes

When Florida neighbors disagree about property lines or other issues, it often leads to rancorous disputes that are difficult to resolve. Real estate disputes can be quite complicated because the laws that govern such matters are often complex. If those directly involved are unable to achieve an amicable solution to a particular problem, they may seek the court's intervention to make a decision for them. That's apparently what happened in the case of Led Zeppelin rock star, Jimmy Page, and his next door neighbor, Robbie Williams.

US immigration law officials say entries were suspicious

The Department of Health and Human Services currently has many children under its care who arrived at borders to the United States, accompanied by adults. U.S. immigration law officials in Florida and elsewhere typically conduct background checks when adults come forward, saying they want to sponsor migrant children. Such background checks apparently didn't end so well for more than 170 immigrants who have since been detained.

Asylum advocates call for U.S. immigration law reform

Advocates speaking on behalf of immigrants in another state recently fired some pretty strong accusations against government officials. They say U.S. immigration law needs to change immediately, especially regarding how asylum seekers are being (or are not being) cared for in detention. In fact, such advocates say that the federal government is guilty of child abuse because of current adverse conditions, which witnesses claim are inhumane in a detention facility in their city and beyond. Florida immigrants may want to stay updated on the situation.

Real estate disputes: Facts re nuisance and tresspass laws

Some Florida residents get along quite well with their neighbors. Others, however, are currently involved in real estate disputes, many of which include issues concerning nuisance and trespass laws. A person might say that his or her neighbor is a nuisance but that does not necessarily mean the situation fits the legal definition of the word. 

Nurse preparing for doctorate worried about adjustment of status

During the George W. Bush administration, El Salvador immigrants in Florida and beyond were granted temporary protective status (TPS). The protection was given to help hundreds of thousands of people who had become displaced due to catastrophic circumstances in their country of origin. Some time before adjustment of status options were offered to these people, a 4-year-old girl forded the Rio Grande river on her mother's shoulders, as they escaped violence and danger in El Salvador.

US immigration law support for Florida residents

Tens of thousands of immigrants have integrated into communities throughout Florida in recent years. In fact, people entering the United States with employment visas, family-based visas and other documents continue to arrive on a daily basis. It is not uncommon for U.S. immigration law issues to arise that delay progress toward status adjustment or to prevent a planned arrival.

US immigration law brings new business owners in Florida

There seems to be an almost constant influx of immigrants in Florida. As in many other states, a lot of the people who come here from other countries of origin have taken steps under U.S. immigration law to launch their own businesses. Becoming a business owner in the United States is a dream many foreign nationals share.

Judge rules on US immigration law case

A 35-year-old man in another state was reportedly taken into custody and placed in detention in July of this year. Florida immigrants who are worried about an apparent increase in immigrant arrests throughout the nation may want to follow this U.S. immigration law case. Many immigrant advocates have been decrying the government's handling of this particular situation.  

Police officer's death sparks US immigration law controversy

Many Florida immigrants and their families live in fear that Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers will show up unannounced and take one or more of their family members away. Those who are living in the United States who have criminal records (even if they fulfilled their sentences) are reportedly among those at greatest risk for arrest and deportation. A man in another state was recently listed as eligible for immediate removal following an incident that resulted in a police officer's death. The situation has ignited contentious debate regarding U.S. immigration law, in particular, sanctuary issues.

Is the start of your new year clouded by real estate disputes?

Florida residents and others across the country are kicking off a brand new year, which for many, includes setting personal or business-related goals that they hope to achieve in the months ahead. Such goals often include a desire to buy or sell property or to launch a new business. It is unfortunate (but not uncommon) when such endeavors spark real estate disputes.
