Immigration: Will detainees have to submit DNA?

Immigrant families in New Jersey and across the country may want to stay updated on a developing story regarding the federal government. More specifically, there may be upcoming changes to U.S. immigration law that include required DNA submission for those being held in detention. Many immigrant advocates have already decried that such a move would invade the privacy of tens of thousands of people.

Criminal defense: Immigrant at risk for removal in New Jersey

An immigration detention center in New Jersey currently as a 25-year-old resident who came to the United States with his parents. At that time, he was just 6 years old and was not only accompanied by his parents but three older siblings as well. He grew up in a poverty-stricken neighborhood where many say people of color are targeted by police, which often prompts a need for them to seek criminal defense support.

You have the right to a fair trial, but what does that mean?

If you are facing criminal charges, especially for a violent or drug-related crime, you certainly hope your day in court will bring about a positive resolution to your case. Whether you are facing charges in federal or New Jersey court, the penalties for a conviction for such crimes can be quite severe. You may be facing the possibility of decades in prison.

Immigration detention issues that may affect New Jersey residents

As in most other states, many New Jersey households include members who arrived in the United States from other countries. Families who may not have immediate relatives who are immigrants often have friends or co-workers who do. A group of doctors in another state have taken a stand on immigration detention issues they say are causing devastation among certain groups of people.

Legal problems arise in immigration case that was already closed

Many New Jersey immigrants can attest to experiencing high levels of stress regarding legal status issues. Some have run into problems regarding visa applications or green card interviews. Others, who may have arrived in the United States under more urgent circumstances, may be at risk for removal due to not having proper paperwork. A man in another state says he was carrying immigration documents that proved his particular case had been closed, but a border patrol agent rejected the papers and arrested him anyway.

Custody orders are not optional for your ex

Perhaps no one suffers more through a divorce than the children do, particularly if the child custody issues become contentious. If you and your ex are in this situation, you have likely done all you can to protect your children from the trauma that can so easily result when parents end their marriage. However, your ex may not be on the same page as you.

A woman worried about immigration issues gave birth in a church

Like many other immigrants in New Jersey and beyond, a woman currently residing in another state came to the United States years ago as a teenager. She is now a 36-year-old mother of three. The birth of her youngest child recently took place in a church building. The woman has been living there with her two other children because she is worried about her immigration status.
