Adjustment of status: Good news about green cards

Many immigrants in Florida and elsewhere arrive in the United States with an ultimate goal of becoming a permanent resident. Seeking an adjustment of status can be challenging, especially if an obstacle arises that a person does not feel equipped to handle alone. With regard to those who apply for marriage-based green cards, things may be getting a bit easier.

What is the best way to resolve real estate disputes?

A lot of people in Florida own real estate. Perhaps, you're one of many people in the state who own a home or a business, maybe even both. Any number of issues, such as those involving selling, buying, investing, building or other contract-related topics, can arise at any time to spark real estate disputes. In fact, it is often easier for a disagreement to arise than it is to solve one.

Man in another state facing US immigration law problems

Many Florida residents have trees in their yards. Sometimes, people cut their trees down for numerous reasons. One would not likely expect that cutting down a tree would spark U.S. immigration law problems, as it has apparently done in the case of a man who lives in another state.

Don't let adjustment of status problems ruin your holidays

In Florida and across the country, tens of thousands of people are gearing up for the 2019 holiday season. Many households include members who are immigrants. Sadly, some of them are currently facing adjustment of status problems that may be threatening to put a damper on their holiday joy.

Overall foreclosure rate down in Florida despite October numbers

When discussing financial matters, Florida residents would likely agree that the average household typically experiences an ebb and flow of good times and bad regarding personal finances. Any number of issues, such as medical needs, loss of employment or even divorce can topple a person's financial scales in a negative direction. Current data indicates there were foreclosure filings on more than 55,000 U.S. properties in the third quarter. 

US immigration law: Things to know regarding temporary visas

Not every man or woman who travels to Florida from other countries of origin intend to stay here permanently. Many of them apply for temporary visas because they wish to visit, work or study in the United States for a time, then return to their homelands. There are many types of visas. If something goes wrong in the application process, after a visa expires or in other circumstances, problems with U.S. immigration law may follow.

Many veterans are facing adjustment of status issues

Florida residents and many others throughout the country are taking time this week to celebrate and honor the nation's military on Veterans' Day. Many men and women who serve in the U.S. military are immigrants or children of immigrants. In fact, many service members are non-citizens, and some of them are currently facing adjustment of status problems.

Condominiums and cooperatives: Where to seek legal support

There are many community associations in Florida. While there are state regulations in place, there are also terms and agreements that are specific to a particular property or organization. It is not uncommon for legal problems to arise regarding condominiums and cooperatives, which is why it pays to know ahead of time where to seek support.

US immigration law and criminal justice often intersect

In Florida and elsewhere, there are undocumented immigrants who have been convicted of crimes. In many cases, when local law enforcement releases people from custody, notice is sent to federal immigration agencies. This is not always done, as was evident in a recent series of releases that took place in another state.

Florida real estate disputes often involve tenants and landlords

What if a Florida tenant arrives home to his or her apartment and finds all personal belongings at the curb? Upon further investigation, the tenant realizes the lock has been changed on the apartment door. Is this okay? Can a landlord do this, or is it breaking a law? Real estate disputes often involve these types of issues.

Many people worried about US immigration law changes

Many Florida households include members who were born in other countries. Staying updated on U.S. immigration law policies is challenging, even for those well-versed in such issues. A recent mention of possible upcoming changes has many immigrants and advocates alarmed.
