Florida Immigration Lawyer 

Immigration laws in Florida are some of the strictest immigration laws in the country. These new laws include the criminalization of transporting immigrants lacking permanent legal status into the state, as well as invalidating any U.S. government identification these immigrants might have and preventing local governments from issuing ID cards. Needless to saythis new legislation leaves many immigrants frightened and concerned about their status and visa applications.  

Fortunately, if you are an immigrant, you have people on your side working hard to uphold your rights. A Florida immigration attorney at Martinez Immigration will fight for you while helping you navigate the complicated immigration system.

Common Immigration Issues in Florida

Border Security and Detention Centers

Many migrants find themselves stranded in a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention center. If you know someone who is detained or fear that you or your family members may soon face detention, obtaining legal counsel is crucial.  

In addition, Florida has recently increased funding to relocate immigrants to other parts of the country. Most of these people have no idea where they are being sent or why, which has serious impacts on families and the emotional and mental health of the detainee. A Florida immigration attorney can help you or a family member seek legal action for those affected by ICE.

DACA Program

On September 13, 2023, the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas issued a decision finding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) plan unlawful. However, the case has been appealed and will likely end up before the Supreme Court. A final decision may not come until mid-2025.

Meanwhile, DACA renewal applications are still being processed but new applications cannot be processed currently. This applies to immigrants in every state.  

What is Necessary Documentation?

Before you can apply for a Green Card, or permanent resident status, you must supply proof of your lawful entry into the U.S., current immigration status, and a valid passport. You must also show that the person sponsoring your application is a U.S. citizen or has permanent resident status.  

A Florida immigration lawyer can advise on what kind of documents qualify as proof. For instance, proving your sponsor is a U.S. citizen requires their birth certificate or passport, while documenting a lawful permanent resident’s status is satisfied with a copy of their Green Card.  

You may need different types of documents depending on the petition you are filing for permanent resident status. Your lawyer will inform you what documents are necessary based on your individual situation.
