    Well it depends why the immigration hold is there. If he has prior offenses then the result of this one may not matter. However, the criminal offense is normally resolved prior to deportation. If this is his first offense, then a not guilty verdict or a dismissal may release the immigration hold. If you would like to talk more please contact me for a free consult.

    I think this is a case that will come down to witness credibility. From what you have told us, this individual will have very little credibility. Given the circumstance of his firing, and your ability to provide written documentation of your transaction, it is unlikely this case will get filed in criminal court. First, a police organization will have to review the matter, and then if they feel it may be warranted, the State Attorney's Office will review the case for potential filing....

    You will have to appear in front of the sentencing judge. Your sentence will be at their discretion. I recommend putting together as much mitigating evidence as possible for the court to see your progress.

    The Statute of Limitations for general negligence claims in FL is 4 years. You will need to contact an attorney and check the date of accident and the date of filing. There could be a motion to dismiss. Even if you insurance company compensated the other party, if there was no release from liability signed in return for the payment then you are still subject to suit.

    You face a max of 5 years in prison on each 3rd degree felony. However, often times people charged with these crimes who have no criminal record may be able to enter a diversion program and avoid a conviction. Contact a local attorney asap. If you need a referral please contact me.

  8. Is a condominium association allowed to deny an owner the right to allow relative to occupy their unit without a lease?

    Answered over 5 years ago.

    You need to check the condo association documents to see what the requirements are for your building for new tenants. Often times associations do require a lease and their approval of the tenant, regardless of relative or not. As for the homestead exemption, if it is not your primary residence then it should not be exempted anyhow by state of FL law.

    If someone is on your premises without your consent they are trespassing. Insurance companies are known to watch certain people. I recommend you consult with legal counsel and let them handle the insurance companies for you. We offer free consultations. Please contact us at (786) 371-4431 for more information. Harris Gilbert
