Getting Asylum in the United States.

The Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) provides that the initial interview for asylum applications filed on or after April 1, 1997 (a year ago) should take place within 45 days after the date the application is filed, and a decision should be made on the asylum application within 180 days after the date of filing.

Here are some of the reasons that people file for asylum –

1.  Race
2.  Their choice of religion
3.  Being a member of a certain social group in their old country
4.  Their political opinions.

There are more, of course, but the bottom line is that millions of people over the years have chosen the United States of America as a safe haven.  If you or a loved one is seeking asylum in the Baltimore area please contact Maryland immigration attorney Briana Arnold.  She will sit down with you and formulate a plan from her Baltimore office.  Call (410) 484-1400.

Why Should I Hire a Female Divorce Attorney?

No one has to tell you what a stressful time that you go through in the divorce process.  This is especially true when there are minor children involved.  All you want is for the whole thing to be over already!  Your life is ahead of you and maybe you do not have any animosity, but you want and need a fast and fair resolution.

Here are some reasons why you should hire a woman to fight for your rights –

1.  E=MC squared.  Not what you think…emotion = more compassion.
2.  I know how to multi-task.
3.  I am a great listener.
4.  You can always approach me with any issue.
5.  I am on the side of you and your children.

No matter what the situation may be; contested, uncontested, minor children involved, whatever,  I believe that I am the right choice to represent you in a Maryland divorce court.  I am Briana Arnold, a noted Baltimore area family lawyer.  Why not make an appointment at my 1777 Reisterstown Road office by calling (410) 484-1400?

What is the Future of Immigration in America?

Have you got a crystal ball?  Although the United States has long relied on immigration to fuel productivity and maintain a competitive edge, as well as drive the dynamic that characterizes American society, the nation’s overburdened immigration system is no longer serving America’s needs as this administration turns up the heat.

The Independent Task Force on Immigration and America’s Future seeks to design a new and simplified immigration regime that averts illegal immigration, and at the same time, harnesses the benefits of immigration for the future.  Their proposals target reform in three key areas: admissions, enforcement, and integration.

To say that the future of immigration in America is cloudy would be the understatement of the century!  It takes an experienced Maryland immigration attorney like Brianna Arnold to sort it out.  Please give her a call with your specific questions at (410) 484-1400 and arrange a meeting at her office located at 1777 Reisterstown Road in Baltimore.

Don’t Accept Back Child Support as the Norm.

So often, primary custodial parents will not pursue what they and their children are absolutely entitled to.  If you have a good job and you are providing for your minor children, you might find it more convenient to just ignore the elephant in the room.  If it is an ever-mounting child support past due payment, then it’s time to fight back!

Federal and state laws mandate tough enforcement procedures.  Those who are delinquent and owe back child support are often called "deadbeat parents," It is not just a colorful term, but it also is often used in the titles of state laws meant to ensure the timely payment of child support.  If someone is delinquent in paying their fair share they are considered to be “in arrears”.

Attorney Briana Arnold believes that every custodial parent in the state of Maryland is entitled to his or her fair share.  Child support should be taken very seriously.  The well-being of your kids is at stake here!  For a consultation about collecting past-due child support payments make an appointment with Attorney Arnold in her Baltimore office by calling (410) 484-1400.
