Untitled---2023-09-21T120813.850.jpgChoosing a nursing home for a loved one is a significant decision. Families want to make sure their loved one is provided with the best possible care and quality of life. However, once their elderly loved one is in the nursing home, it is important for their families to remain vigilant about the care they are receiving. Knowing what signs to watch for can help protect your loved one. If you do suspect they are being abused or neglected, call an Illinois nursing home abuse attorney right away.

Physical Signs of Abuse or Neglect

Physical signs are among the most visible signs of nursing home abuse or neglect. Families should watch for:

  • Unexplained injuries - Bruises, cuts, fractures, or bedsores that cannot be adequately explained or are recurring can mean abuse.


Untitled---2023-09-20T103108.724.jpgThere are many issues that can have an impact on a person’s immigration status. One of the most serious issues is criminal charges that involve crimes of moral turpitude (CMT). These types of crimes are those that are associated with an individual’s moral character and can result in an immigrant’s deportation. If you have been charged with a CMT, it is important to contact an experienced DuPage County immigration lawyer immediately.

What Are Crimes of Moral Turpitude?

There are a number of offenses that can be defined as crimes of moral turpitude; however, the one factor that all of these crimes have in common is that they involve morally reprehensible behavior or conduct. These crimes usually involve fraud, theft, violence, or other acts that reveal a lack of moral character on the part of the accused offender.

There are two main groups of CMTs:


Untitled---2023-09-12T095622.812.jpgEarlier this month, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) began sending text messages and emails to migrants who are eligible to apply for work authorization permits. The notifications are only for certain immigrants who meet the required stipulations. The following is a brief overview of the program. If you have received a message from USCIS or are unsure if you qualify, contact an Illinois immigration lawyer for legal help.

Work Authorization Notifications

According to announcements issued by the USCIS, electronic notifications were sent to those immigrants seeking asylum, as well as a parole authority program put in place by the Biden administration. Those notified include the approximately 200,000 migrants from Cuba, Haiti, Nicaragua, and Venezuela who were allowed to fly into the U.S. and migrants who were allowed to enter the country along the southern border via a federal phone app program. That program has allowed approximately 180,000 migrants into the country. Both of these programs allow immigrants to live and work in the United States for two years.

One issue that the administration did not anticipate is that many of these migrants – who are eligible to apply for work permits – have not done so. This is contributing to several major cities attempting to meet the housing, medical care, and other financial needs of immigrants who have settled in their cities.


Untitled---2023-09-08T141104.665.jpgThere has been much controversy over the past decade or so about the catastrophic effects that professional athletes suffer from brain injuries and repeated hits to their heads, particularly professional football and hockey players. After years of participating professionally in their chosen sports, many players develop chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), a progressive and fatal disease of the brain. While CTE has been associated with professional athletes, a new study shows that the condition is developing in people at much younger ages than previously thought.

Any brain injury has the potential to cause devastating disabilities. An Illinois brain injury attorney knows that one or more brain injuries have the potential to cause significant health issues later, as this new study reveals.

What Is CTE?

CTE is a fatal condition that is caused by traumatic brain injuries. Multiple studies have shown that people who suffer a brain injury – including concussions – are two to four times more at risk for developing dementia as they get older. People who have suffered multiple head injuries have an even higher risk.


Untitled---2023-09-06T093332.363.jpgAlmost every marriage goes through rocky periods that sometimes leave spouses questioning whether they want to stay in the marriage or not. Some couples decided to stay together and work to resolve the issues. Some couples decide the marriage cannot be repaired and decide to divorce. Then there are couples who are unsure if their marriage can be repaired or not. They know that, for now, they do not want to live with their spouse, but they also know they are not ready to legally dissolve the marriage and make that living situation permanent. For these couples, filing for a legal separation may be the best option. An Illinois divorce attorney can help you decide what choice may be the best for you.  


What Is a Legal Separation?

When a married couple decides not to live together, there are certain issues that need to be decided. These include:
