  • Is it unconstitutional when the government indicts you and the arrest warrant was not signed by a judge?

    Is it unconstitutional when the government indicts you and the arrest warrant was not signed by a judge?

    Jesus’s Answer

    I assure you the arrest warrant was signed by the judge, you just don't have a copy. But even if in the rare case it was not signed, it was almost certainly submitted to the judge for signature and as a result of a scrivener's error it was not signed; in that case, it can be easily corrected.

  • If my husband was deported about 7 years ago and then re-entered to the US, would there be any problems in submitting the I-130?

    If my husband was deported about 7 years ago and then re-entered to the US, would there be any problems in submitting the I-130? Overall we've been together 4 yrs. But married for 2.

    Jesus’s Answer

    It would depend if his ban was of the 5 year or 10 year flavor. Clearly if it was the latter, it would be a huge problem as he not only violated immigration laws, but Federal criminal laws. This current administration has consistently charged people criminally for entering within the ban and I have seen people get up to 3 years in federal prison after being convicted. My advice is that before you file any papers, you consult with an experienced immigration attorney.

  • Can I petition my half brother into the country with a DNA test ?

    My father is his dad but he never claimed him he is registered as having another parent because his mother was married to him. It was an affair

    Jesus’s Answer

    There is a presumption that you are not related, DNA notwithstanding. To overcome that presumption is not easy. Contact a local immigration attorney for more specific guidance.

  • How long can the state of Florida hold a person in pretrial detention without conviction?

    My boyfriend has been in jail since January 2012 for charges that include armed burglary armed robbery and kidnapping. He has only been to court twice in two years. Every time the court gives him a court date they offset it to another time; this h...

    Jesus’s Answer

    To answer your first question, he can be held for as long as his attorney keeps asking for time, or for as long as the judge allows it. Secondly, you kind of contradict yourself when you say that he has not been charged, but the charges include Armed Burglary. Sounds like he has been charged and nobody can be held that long without being charged. The charge is a serious charge and chances are that he either has no bond or has such a high bond that he cannot post it. There are things that can be done, but it will be best for you to talk to his attorney. If he does not have a private attorney, I highly recommend you or his family hire one. He is facing life in prison (armed burglary is punishable by life, I'm sure if you look at his case in the clerk's website, you will see next to Armed Burglary the letters PBL). You also mentioned that the state has little evidence on him; sounds like they have evidence! Evidence is like being pregnant, you cannot be a little pregnant, you either are or you're not. I wish you and your boyfriend the best of luck.

    Jesus’s Answer

    Of course it can be appealed. It sounds like you did this yourself and that is frequently a problem. People feel that their case is self explanatory and should not require the assistance of a professional, but often times, a professional makes the difference between granting and denying.

    Jesus’s Answer

    There are two main ways that insurance companies make their money: collecting premiums and denying claims. Do you really want to risk losing your case? then go at it alone. An attorney by your side is your better choice.

    Jesus’s Answer

    Hire a good attorney, especially one that can handle Criminal Defense and Immigration matters. There is hope with new jurisprudence out of the 11th Circuit, but it won't be easy. Good luck.

    Jesus’s Answer

    Don't waste your time suing criminals, for one, their activity is not covered by insurance, and two, if they are engaging in criminal activity, they likely judgment-proof. What you could do is make sure to tell the prosecuting attorney to make it a condition of any plea offer to them that you get paid for your losses. You may even be entitled to compensation from the victims' fund. Good luck.

    Jesus’s Answer

    33.3% of the final recovery (or 1/3) is a standard fee for pre-litigation cases. That said, some attorneys will charge as low as 25% (1/4). Search and you shall find. Good luck.
