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.

Revisiting DACA.

Let’s take a fresh look at DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals).  The controversy continues to permeate our lives here in America and the state of Maryland.  Our state has over twenty-five thousand DACA-eligible residents and you can be sure that every one of them and their loved ones are uncertain about their future in this country.

This acronym refers to young immigrants who were brought to the United States to live here “illegally” for two years to pursue work authorization without risk of deportation.  IF they met program requirements, that is.  President Obama created DACA in 2012 through an executive action.  There are over 800,000 “Dreamers” nationwide.

Over the last year, the climate has changed and now these youngsters find themselves on the endangered species list.  I am attorney Briana Arnold and I may be the “Dreamers” best friend in the Baltimore area.  I am a Maryland immigration lawyer who will sort it out for you and your family.  Please give me a call at (410) 484-1400.

2.  Request an in-home evaluation.

Marriage to a Non-US Citizen.

If you are a lawful permanent resident of the U.S. and already married to a non-U.S. citizen, you may petition for a Green Card (immigration) for your husband or wife.  That seems logical.  Now, what about if you are engaged?  How do you help your fiancé become a permanent resident of this country?

One way would be to apply for a fiancé visa if your future spouse currently lives overseas.  This visa lets your fiancé enter the United States for 90 days so that your marriage ceremony can take place in the United States.  Once you marry, your spouse can apply for permanent residence and remain in the US.

These and many other questions involving immigration may be answered by attorney Briana Arnold.  She is a noted Baltimore immigration lawyer who will help you through whatever process in which you are involved.  These are ever-changing times.  Arrange for a meeting with Briana Arnold at her 1777 Reisterstown office by calling (410) 484-1400.
