Illinois truck accident lawyer

According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), there are more large trucks and buses on the road in the United States than ever before. In 2017, more than 13.2 million large trucks and buses were registered in the country. While this is indicative of the growth of commerce in the country, it has also contributed to the rise in the number of truck accidents. The FMCSA estimated that there were more than 4,400 fatal traffic accidents involving large trucks and approximately 116,000 injury-only accidents with trucks in 2016. Because of the large size of trucks, accidents are often very serious, and other vehicles and their occupants usually sustain the worst injuries. Fortunately, there are certain precautions that can be taken to prevent truck accidents in Illinois:

IL immigration lawyerDo you have family members in another country who would like to immigrate to the US? If you are a US citizen and own a business, you should consider the possibility of sponsoring your relatives for an employment-based immigration visa. The wait times can be much shorter for employment-based (EB) visas than for family preference (F) visas, and you can sponsor more distant relatives for an EB visa than you can for an F visa.

Limitations on Family-Based Immigration Visas

There are no annual quotas for immediate relative (IR) visas, but these are only available to a U.S. citizen’s spouse, parent, or unmarried child under age 21. There are quotas, and often substantial waiting lines, for family preference (F) visas, which are available for adult children and siblings. The wait times for family preference visas can be five, 10, or even 15 years, no matter what country your relatives are coming from. And you cannot sponsor a cousin, nephew, or aunt for a family-based immigration visa at all.

Younger Relatives Can Most Easily Get Student Visas

If your relative is of college age, consider having them first come to the U.S. on an F-1 visa, which will enable them to stay in the U.S. until they finish their degree. Students in the STEM fields of science, technology, engineering, and math can then stay in the US and work for an additional year under the Optional Practical Training (OPT) program and extend for an additional two years under the STEM OPT program.

Sticking to a consistent parenting time schedule may take a lot of effort on your part, but experts agree that having a predictable routine helps children feel more secure and confident. At some point, however, almost every child will put up a fuss when they have to pack up and shift to their other parent’s home. It is natural for a parent to feel conflicted in this situation. On one hand, you hate to do anything that creates undue stress for your child. On the other hand, if you do not comply with your parenting time order, you could be penalized by the court.

So, what should you do if your child strongly objects to going with their other parent when the parenting time schedule calls for it? There are several factors to consider, including the law, the age of the child and the behavior of the co-parent.

Lombard personal injury lawyer

Millions of car accidents are reported to police each year and range in severity from property damage only to fatal accidents. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), there were nearly 6.5 million police-reported traffic crashes in 2017. While the majority of them were property-damage-only crashes, there were nearly 2 million crashes involving injuries and more than 34,000 fatal crashes.

One of the most serious injuries you can suffer when you are in a car accident is a brain injury. The brain is arguably the most important organ in your body because it controls all of your bodily functions. Injuring this organ can result in long-term or even permanent impairment to both your physical and mental states. Suffering a brain injury from a car accident may entitle you to financial compensation if the crash was someone else’s fault.

Il immigration lawyerMedia coverage sometimes denigrates the enforcement actions taken by U.S. immigration authorities, calling them overly aggressive or harmful to families. Yet if agencies like Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) did not actively seek to capture and punish those who violate U.S. criminal laws and immigration laws, the U.S. could not maintain the public safety and homeland security that the citizens and lawful residents of the nation expect and deserve. Deportation and removal actions are an unpleasant but necessary reality.

That said, U.S. immigration law is complex and often intimidating. There are many unexpected ways that foreign citizens wishing to live in the U.S. can run afoul of the law.

Young people hoping to advance in life are particularly at risk of being taken lured into fraudulent immigration schemes. The skill of an experienced immigration attorney is often necessary to help holders of student visas to stay out of trouble with U.S. immigration officials.
