Young immigrants face 'grave harm' in detention centers

North Carolina residents may be aware that the living conditions of over 10,000 immigrant children being held in federal custody at the U.S.-Mexico border have become the source of multiple lawsuits in recent weeks. According to these cases, the bad conditions in which these children are confined are used as a way to punish immigrant families in order to deter them from entering the country. The lawsuits further claim the goal of the federal government is to deter immigration in general.

Financial reasons to give a divorce a second thought

Some North Carolina couples reach a point where they want to consider ending a marriage that's no longer working for them. Taking this step isn't unheard of. After all, about half of all first marriages end in divorce. The stats are even more alarming for subsequent trips down the aisle. Barring instances of spousal abuse or violence, it's generally advised that couples consider the possible financial challenges that legally splitting may present.

Getting an Expunction in North Carolina: Clearing My Record

Frequently in our practice we come across a common misconception-background checks only show convictions, not charges. This could not be further from the truth. Each and every time you are charged with a crime, it is reflected on your record. This is true from a simple traffic infraction to a felony. It does not matter that the charges were dismissed or the charged individual was found to be not guilty.

Understanding arson laws in North Carolina

When people in North Carolina face arson charges after a fire, they may not be aware of the different types of allegations that may be involved. Under state law, arson is considered a more serious form of property crime than vandalism or similar offenses. If people were present at the time of the fire, additional charges could also be added. However, even if no one else was present, the likelihood of injury to passers-by or emergency response personnel may be cited to justify higher sentencing requests.

Why is an attorney important to your criminal defense?

If you are facing criminal charges, you are probably spending a lot of time weighing your options. You may feel confident that you can easily defend yourself against the charges, especially if the evidence against you is weak. If police wrongly accuse you of a crime, you certainly feel your profession of innocence will be sufficient to protect you from a conviction.
