US immigration law: Advocates oppose DNA collection

If a Florida household includes a family member who was taken into custody by Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers, it can cause stress and worry for the entire family. U.S. immigration law is complex, and policies are constantly changing. It can be challenging for the average person to know his or her rights and how to protect them in detention.

US immigration law: Man was detained when he fell, now can't walk

Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers say they do not believe a man who says he can no longer walk due an injury he suffered while in detention. The U.S. immigration law officials said they have evidence that a medical examination showed the man did not suffer any injury that would cause inability to walk. An attorney speaking on behalf of the man, however, has stated otherwise. Immigrants in Florida have also complained about unhealthy and unsafe living conditions in detention facilities. 

Stay calm if US immigration law problems arise

Federal law governs all matters regarding immigration. New immigrants arrive in Florida all the time, each having experienced a unique set of circumstances in traveling to the United States. U.S. immigration law is complex, and it is not uncommon for issues to arise that delay or impede a person's ability to accomplish immigration-related goals. 

Investors can seek adjustment of status

Many Florida immigrants are entrepreneurs or investors. Studies show immigrants play key roles in U.S. business success. In fact, if a person plans to create new jobs by investing capital in a U.S. business, he or she may qualify for a certain application for an adjustment of status, thereby obtaining a visa that allows conditional permanent residency. There are two main categories of this type of visa, which is known as an EB-5 visa.

Employment immigration problems? A few things to know

A person who is adept in a specialized field -- such as athletics, medical work or research -- might travel to Florida or elsewhere in the United States to work. Having an extraordinary ability in a specialized field often creates eligibility to apply for a nonimmigrant visa through the process of employment immigration. This type of visa allows a worker to stay in the United States on a temporary basis as opposed to someone emigrating from another country to the United States in the hope of becoming a permanent resident or naturalized citizen.

Will US immigration law officials release detainees from custody?

Florida immigrants may be at risk for detention for any number of reasons. For instance, if a man or woman approaches a U.S. border to request asylum, Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers may detain him or her for some time. Another reason U.S. immigration law officials might take someone into custody would be if he or she entered the United States without proper paperwork in order.

Real estate disputes: Amicable negotiation, a key to success

Many business owners, as well as private property owners in Florida run into trouble when a party with whom they've signed a contract doesn't adhere to the terms. Whether you are a seller, a buyer, a landlord or tenant, it can be difficult and highly stressful to resolve real estate disputes when they arise. To avoid such problems, it pays to carefully review a prospective agreement before signing anything.

Adjustment of status rules have changed again

In Florida and elsewhere across the country, staying updated on U.S. immigration laws and policies can be challenging and stressful. It seems such laws are always being changed. Immigrants who are planning to seek an adjustment of status will want to review recent policy changes that may affect their ability to do so.

The citizenship process can be lengthy and stressful

When a person emigrates from another country of origin to Florida or elsewhere in the United States, he or she may have certain goals in mind. Some want to live and work in the United States so they can send money home to their family members. Others come here to live because they are marrying U.S. citizens. Many immigrants have an ultimate goal in common: citizenship.

US immigration law problems: World class athletes not immune

Many Florida immigrants are athletes who have traveled to the United States to compete. Even a world class athlete, however, must adhere to U.S. immigration law and apply for a visa like any other person who wishes to come to the U.S. to live or work. There are many types of visas and it is critical that an applicant understands the exact one needed.

Real estate disputes: How to handle property line issues

Some Florida homes are built close to one another. For others, the nearest home might be a quarter mile or more away. Either way, real estate disputes may arise if two property owners disagree about boundary lines. Sometimes there's a physical structure, such as a fence or tree line, that creates a partition between properties; other times, a boundary line may not be clearly marked. This could pose a problem if the property owners disagree about where one person's land ends and the other's begins.
