Immigration Attorney in Baton Rouge Discusses State Marriage Law Case Affecting Louisiana Immigrant

March 31, 2017

Family Immigration Attorney in Baton Rouge LA A federal judge earlier this week in Louisiana declared that a state law requiring people to produce birth certificates in order to marry was unconstitutional, and this could have a large impact in the immigration community.[1] The judge found that the 2015 law, which was passed in an effort to curb sham marriages for immigration purposes, violates the rights of U.S. citizens who are foreign-born.[2] Viet Anh Vo, who prefers to be called “Victor," has lived in Louisiana since he was an infant, but he was born in Indonesia in a refugee camp after his parents fled Vietnam.[3] He was engaged to and was planning on marrying Heather Pham, a United States Citizen, in 2016 when the Clerk of Court denied their application because he could not...

January 27, 2017

Louisiana Injury Attorney During my years of practice as a personal injury attorney, I can’t tell you how many times I have heard clients utter the phrase, “My insurance agent told me I have full (auto) coverage.”  This is usually said in disbelief after I tell the client there isn’t enough insurance money to pay for their medical expenses, lost wages, etc. because the at-fault driver has little or no insurance, and the client does not carry what is known as “uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage or UM.”  I am here to tell you that if you don’t carry UM coverage, you don’t have full coverage. In my experience, when an agent tells you that you have full coverage, that usually means you have liability coverage and collision coverage under your... Read More
