Allstate report shows car accident frequency across the country

Immigrants face greater scrutiny when seeking permanent residency

Two-car collision involving out-of-control vehicle

Two people were taken to the hospital following an accident that happened just south of Florida Interstate 295.

The issue immigration reform isn’t touching on

In 2002, former President George W. Bush enacted a program that allowed noncitizens to join U.S. forces and gain citizenship as a result. For many people familiar with the program, noncitizens are often under the assumption that they automatically gain citizenship because of their military service. Unfortunately, this isn’t the case. As a result, many servicemen are missing out on their chance at citizenship.

Case shows importance of knowing criminal and immigration law

When undocumented immigrants in our state are charged and convicted with criminal activity, these charges a lot of the time can interfere with immigration proceedings. They can even result in deportation as well.

Where does immigration reform stand today?

The November elections are far away now and yet a large portion of the American population is still waiting for Congress to settle its differences and pass comprehensive--as well as much needed--immigration reform. But while some skeptics feel the day will never come when the unauthorized migrants in the United States are given a pathway to citizenship, new support from members of Congress may suggest otherwise.

The incident took place north of State Road 60 and reportedly left many in critical condition.

Beware of con artists, fraud when seeking immigration help

One constant truth about immigration disputes and the law in general is that the individuals who are dealing with the immigration issue need to seek professional legal help. We don't just say that because it sounds nice -- we say it because, more than most other areas of law, a botched immigration proceeding or an issue that is torpedoed by a scam artist (or some other form of fraudulent activity) can absolutely devastate a family.
