The Difficulties of Driving Around Baltimore.

We love living here, don’t we?  Baltimore is our home and it is easy to get around…SURE IT IS!  This time of year, we urge you to package up the road rage…we have plenty to spare around these parts.  We all have places to go.  Let us pledge to get there safely as we navigate around the Baltimore area this summer.

Why is driving around here so challenging at times?

1.  It seems like everyone is discourteous.
2.  Why do these other drivers even have blinkers?
3.  Have you recently tried merging from I-95 onto 395?
4.  See the crane?  No, not the bird…the construction crane.
5.  Is that a pothole or the Grand Canyon?

When driving around Baltimore causes you or someone that you love to get into an auto accident make sure that everyone at the scene is helped.  After that, begin to think of whom will represent you in court if you have personal injury case.  May we suggest Briana Arnold a Maryland auto accident attorney.  She will aggressively fight for your side.  Call her at (410) 484-1400.

Form N-400.

This is not the title of some upcoming Sci-fi movie.  For those applying for U.S. citizenship this is THE form that must be filled out in its entirety.  Green Card holders in the United States of America (and, more importantly, the state of Maryland) who meet the eligibility requirements, can file an N-400 form to request citizenship.

Becoming an American citizen gives you the same rights and privileges of citizenship as natural born American citizens.  There is one exception…you can never become President of the United States (lucky you!).  Is this not what you came to our country to achieve…full and free citizenship?

Now, to the application process.  It is complicated and incredibly important to fill out correctly the first time.  To achieve that you could call on the experience of Baltimore area immigration attorney Briana Arnold.  Attorney Arnold has many years of experience with the N-400 form and will guide you through the process.  Please call her for an appointment at (410) 484-1400.

Hey, That’s Your Kid Too!

Sometimes a man will walk away from a relationship with minor children feeling that his obligations are finished.  How wrong is that?  They cannot legally run from their responsibility even if they live in another state.  Know this, child support agencies in different states are required to help each other establish and enforce child support orders.

There are a couple of ways to collect child support when the other parent does not live in Maryland.  You may formally ask a Maryland court to order child support payments even though the other parent doesn't live here.  You also can ask the child support agency where the other parent lives to help establish a child support order.

Help in doing so comes in the form of Baltimore area family lawyer Briana Arnold.  She has dealt with “deadbeat” parents for a long time and she will fight aggressively to make sure that you get the money required to raise your kid(s).  Contact attorney Briana Arnold today to arrange a sit-down at her 1777 Reisterstown office by calling (410) 484-1400.

The Latest News on Maryland Immigration.

You may think of Southwestern states first when you consider the topic of immigration.  Maryland however, has a large immigration community from El Salvador.  Here is an interesting stat… roughly 15 percent of all Maryland residents were born in another country, while 11 percent are native-born Americans who have at least one immigrant parent.

From the recent statistics going back to 2015 nearly one million of the state’s residence were immigrants comprising over 15% of Maryland’s population.  The breakdown was 437,740 women, 410,928 men, and 62,914 children.  Besides El Salvador, India, China, Mexico, and Nigeria comprised most of our state’s immigrants.

Probably no branch of the law is as dynamic as immigration law.  You need to select someone to represent you who has the experience and enthusiasm for Maryland immigrants.  In Baltimore, Briana Arnold may be the right choice for you and your family.  Attorney Arnold will sit down with you at her Commerce Center East office to discuss your case.  Call today (410) 484-1400.

When to Call a Lawyer.

If you watch television, you would think that you should have a personal injury lawyer on speed dial.  The hope, of course is that you never need one.  In the calm of day, with no imminent emergency (I hope) this may be a good time to cover some of the timing issues of when to call an attorney after an accident.

When should your make that call?

1.  Beware of the statute of limitations of how long you have to file AFTER an accident.
2.  Follow the rules.  When do you need to file a police report?
3.  Your insurance company may NOT have your best interests at heart.
4.  You may not know the full extent of your potential damages.
5.  Proving liability is no “piece of cake”.

When and if you need a hard-working personal injury attorney in the Baltimore area I am a phone call away.  My name is Briana Arnold.  If you call, I will give you my full attention in assessing your particular case.  Please arrange an appointment at my office located in Baltimore’s Commerce Center East by calling (410) 484-1400.

4.  Their political opinions.

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.

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.

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.
