LAUNCH OF SISTER LAW FIRM, GERMAN DUAL CITIZENSHIP,LLC, WHICH SPECIALIZES IN HANDLING BEIBEHALTUNGSGENEHIGUNGEN (BBG)

We are excited to introduce you to our newly launched sister law firm, German Dual Citizenship, LLC. This national company was specifically founded to assist German citizens in obtaining dual citizenship. While most countries permit dual citizenship, Germany takes away its citizenship when a German citizen obtains a second foreign citizenship. The exception is if a retention certificate (Beibehaltungsgenehmigung) was successfully obtained. This process is a somewhat complicated process that includes an application with the German government (Bundesverwaltungsamt).

WITH CONGRESS DIVIDED, OBAMA TO GO HIS OWN WAY ON IMMIGRATION

Washington (CNN) -- With Congress mired in dysfunction over immigration, President Barack Obama says he'll do what he can to sidestep the legislative logjam.

One possibility: using presidential authority to remove the threat of possible deportation for a few million immigrants living illegally in the country, a step that conservatives decry as amnesty.

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) posted new Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) statistics on Thursday, revealing that over 550,000 individuals have now been granted DACA. The data, which is current through March 2014, indicate that USCIS has accepted nearly 650,000 requests. Over the past six months, the agency has accepted roughly 500 applications per day. Later this month, USCIS will release the new dual-use form that will serve for both initial and renewal applicants, which is sure to lead to an influx of renewal requests as well as new DACA applications.

The Department of Homeland Security has issued its latest data on the Obama Administration’s initiative that offers deferment from deportation and temporary work permits to young undocumented immigrants under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) initiative. In the first six months of the program (August 15–February 14), 423,634 out of the roughly 936,933 immigrants between the ages of 15 and 30 who might immediately meet the requirements, have had their applications accepted for processing.

HOW TO PROTECT YOUR RIGHTS DURING A DUI TRAFFIC STOP

Let's dispense with the obvious. If you're drunk, then don't drive. Don't drive, because you don't want to hurt someone else or yourself. Don't drive, because you don't want to smash up your car or damage someone else's property. And finally, don't drive, because you don't want to get arrested, lose your license, pay huge fines, have your insurance go through the roof and perhaps even lose your job.
