Valrico, FL asked in Immigration Law, Traffic Tickets, Civil Rights and Municipal Law for Florida

Q: Can we get in trouble? Thank you!

Me and my father are living in Florida, and he got the Nevada Driver's License, because there he has the documents that they required. We bought a car in Colorado. But now we are in Florida, with Nevada drivers license only, we don't have the required documents to get a Florida's License. We have an active insurance from Florida, an Colorado's License Plate and Nevada's License. What should we do? Get a Florida's license plate or keep the Colorado? What we have to say to police if they pull over us and ask why we are using a Nevada's license? We don't want to get in a court and take the risk of be deported. Thank you very much!

A: You probably want to speak with an immigration attorney in Florida. If you do get pulled over, the officer may ask questions that could reveal your legal status in the country. If the jurisdiction in which you are pulled over has an interagency agreement with ICE, simply being pulled over and forced to reveal that you are in the country without authorization could cause problems for you.
