US immigration law problems in Florida re man's death

Someone dies in Florida every single day. However, when a particular death has to do with U.S. immigration law detention issues, immigrant advocates pay close attention, and often reiterate their cries for needed government reform. A 63-year-old man died while in ICE custody on a recent Monday.

US immigration law: Legal support helpful when problems arise

Every day, new immigrants arrive in Florida and other states to begin new lives. Some make the long journey alone while others are accompanied by family members. Adapting to a new life in the United States is often easier if there are already family members here waiting to welcome a newcomer. In either case, however, if U.S. immigration law problems arise, it can cause great stress and worry for everyone involved.

Condominium owner wants property and money back

Florida is a prime real estate location. Whether someone lives in a single residence home or a large condominium, many people choose to buy and sell real estate in this state because of its many amenities. In a perfect world, each transaction would be carried out in a fair, efficient and economically feasible fashion, and all parties would walk away completely satisfied.

Are real estate disputes causing problems with your neighbors?

If the property you purchase or sell in Florida borders another person's residence, it is always wise to make sure you clearly understand any local ordinances or state laws that may pertain to property borders. For instance, if there is a fence on or very near the property line that separates your property from your neighbor's, you'll want to be well-informed regarding financial responsibilities regarding boundary lines. Any number of issues can spark real estate disputes that put a damper on your relationship with your neighbors.

US immigration law: Are personal rights violations occurring?

Many Florida households include members who have special needs. While some people's needs involve physical impediments, such as those who need wheelchairs for mobility, others have conditions that impede mental ability, such as bipolar disorder or autism. Caring for those who have special needs is often less stressful when families can rely on strong support networks in their communities. This topic has intersected U.S. immigration law in another state, where legal advocates say that immigrants who qualify for special protections under the law are being denied their rights.

US immigration law: Court orders city to pay compensation

Many Florida immigrants and their families are worried about detainer issues. It is definitely not an issue that concerns people in this state alone. In fact, a recent court case in another state involved an immigrant who was detained on two separate occasions after a judge had already ordered his release from jail.

Are legal obstacles impeding your path to citizenship?

If you're one of many Florida immigrants whose greatest desire is to become a full-fledged U.S. citizen, you've likely been studying and working hard to accomplish your goals. The citizenship process is complex and requires that you meet many eligibility requirements and qualifications before you can file an application and, hopefully, achieve citizenship. Once you do file an application to become a U.S. citizen, you must reside full time in the United States until your application has been fully processed.

Florida real estate disputes: Will school have to sell land?

The mood between a Florida school district, a building developer and a group of residents might currently be described as contentious. The three parties have been entangled in real estate disputes since November. Soon, a circuit court judge will hand down a final ruling on the case, which may or may not result in the school district having to sell more than three acres of land that exists on its campus.

US immigration law: Are Florida detention centers like prisons?

There are approximately 2,000 immigrants per day placed in detention in Florida. Many immigrant advocates say this number is exorbitant and driven by profit-hungry privateers who own most of the facilities where such people are housed. Advocates also say that many U.S. immigration law detention centers in this state more closely resemble prisons than the transition, processing or holding centers they are supposed to be. 

Is foreclosure a worry for you in 2020?

Many Florida residents were satisfied with their financial portfolios in 2019. Others encountered multiple challenges, which is not atypical for most households across the country. There are also people whose financial situations have gotten so out of hand that they are now facing serious crisis. Some are worried about issues such as foreclosure.
