Most people have many questions about estate planning but never make a move to go see an attorney. Before Theus' free seminar I did not even know their were attorneys that specialized in only estate planning. Thank goodness I attended...as I did not even know what asset protection was, even though I had assets. Most people think a written will is fine and pass away thinking that things will be as they wished/stated. Most times that is not the case. I urge you to go Theus Law Offices for consultation. They are friendly and down to earth with your wishes being #1. I cannot say enough good things about them. Now that I have gone to Theus I rest so much easier knowing that my wishes...are going to be held up...just as I wanted...no doubt about it....Thanks to the Theus family !

The Theus Law Offices’ Family Estate Planning is a must from my perspective. I had recently lost my dad when I decide to attend the in-person Workshop at the time. My dad and I had attended a similar workshop some four (4) years prior but my dad didn’t elect at the time to move forward. I so wished that he (my dad) had done so because now I am helping my mom go through the Succession/Probate steps with a lawyer currently. If you or your loved ones haven’t made this decision with Estate Planning, I would strongly encourage you to attend this web-based workshop/webinar. Graves Theus is a great attorney to go with for this important step in you and your family’s planning for the future in many, many ways!!!

Estate planning is a complicated process, but my wife and I feel it is valuable and necessary. We started by attending an Estate Planning workshop offered by the Theus Law Offices and led by Jim Theus. That was about the wisest decision we have made in some time. We engaged the services of Theus Law Offices and have benefitted enormously from the direct working relationship with Jim Theus. They did not sign us up and then pass us off to a staff member. We worked with Jim Theus personally. When it was time to work with others of the staff, we found them friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. Jim Theus is exceptionally competent and patiently answers questions. His due diligence is admirable. We found their fees for estate planning reasonable and fair. You would be wise to consider using the services of Theus Law Offices if you are interested in estate planning. We are grateful for their help and recommend them to you without reservations. Our loved ones will also be the beneficiaries of a comprehensive plan, as are we. Doyle L Bailey

New Asylum Restrictions


17 September, 2019

According to the Department of Justice and Homeland Security, the southern border has been overwhelmed with asylum applicants in the past year. There are nearly 436,000 pending asylum applications that have yet to be decided.

The Supreme Court of the United States rendered a decision this past week that would prohibit migrants who have resided in or have traveled through a third country from seeking asylum in the United States. The policy is meant to deny those individuals who have not first sought protection in the countries they have traveled through before seeking asylum in the United States. This particular decision will directly limit the ability of many individuals, particularly migrants coming from Central America.

The attempts of a California federal judge to issue a nationwide injunction against asylum limits were impeded by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. The Supreme Court was called in to rule on this matter considering the case was bouncing around lower courts. After the Supreme Court rendered its decision allowing the asylum restrictions, Justice Sotomayor described the conduct as a “side-step of the ordinary judicial process.” 

Only five justices of the Supreme Court were needed to grant the request. Justice Sotomayor and Ginsburg dissented, and openly expressed their reasonings. Both Justices took the position that enforcing such a rule would turn longstanding practices regarding refugees seeking asylum upside down. In fact, Justice Sotomayor criticized how the implementation of the new regulation was done without having obtained the opinion of the public, which is generally sought.

Considering the new asylum restrictions, it is important to be aware of how that will affect the asylum seeking process. While obtaining asylum is not impossible, it is critical to have the knowledge of well-seasoned immigration attorneys on your side to help you through the lengthy process. Attorneys at Theus Law Offices have successfully assisted clients in the asylum seeking process.
