Q. Can I travel to puerto rico on my work authorization permit while my I-485 is pending?
A: Yes, you can travel to Puerto Rico while your I-485 application is pending. Puerto Rico is a U.S. territory, so travel there is considered domestic. However, you should carry your Employment Authorization Document (EAD) and a valid passport with you. It's also advisable to have a copy of your I-485 receipt notice as proof that your application is pending.

Remember, while in Puerto Rico, you are still subject to U.S. immigration laws. Therefore, it's important to maintain your status and comply with all requirements related to your work authorization and pending adjustment of status. If you have specific concerns or unique circumstances, it may be beneficial to consult with an immigration attorney for personalized advice. ... Read More
Q. Can I put a security sticker on my personal bedroom window?
A: In California, as a general rule, you are allowed to put a security sticker on your personal bedroom window. This is considered a part of your right to ensure privacy and security in your own home. The use of a security sticker does not typically violate any laws, as long as it does not contain offensive or threatening language or imagery.

However, if you live in a community governed by a homeowners' association (HOA) or similar entity, you should check the community's rules and regulations. Some HOAs have specific guidelines about the placement of signs, stickers, or alterations to the exterior appearance of properties.

In your situation, using a security sticker as a deterrent for a nosy neighbor is reasonable. It's a passive way to enhance your sense of privacy and security. If you have concerns about your neighbor's behavior, consider also using curtains or blinds for additional privacy. Remember, if the neighbor's behavior escalates or becomes harassing, you might want to document the incidents and consider speaking to them or seeking advice on how to address the situation. ...

Q. hello Can a company use text messages from my work phone against me, even if I was terminated for a different reason?
A: Hi there,

Good morning. In California, if you were terminated from your job and are considering legal action for wrongful termination, be aware that text messages from your work phone could potentially be used against you in the case. If the phone was provided by your employer, they generally have the right to access and review its contents, including text messages, especially if there's a company policy that addresses electronic communications and privacy.

Even if you were terminated for a different reason, these messages could be brought up in legal proceedings, possibly as evidence to justify the termination or to challenge your claims. It's important to review the terms of your employment agreement and any relevant company policies regarding electronic communications and privacy.

Before pursuing legal action, consult with an attorney experienced in employment law. They can assess the details of your case, including the circumstances of your termination and the nature of the text messages, to provide guidance on how to proceed. Remember, each case is unique, and legal advice should be tailored to your specific situation.
