FindLaw's Top 6 Facebook Posts of the Month: June 2018

Our followers on social media are also following the latest news, which explains why they were so interested in our information on immigration this month. With the big Supreme Court cases, executive orders, and all the political and personal takes the past few weeks, our followers on Facebook and Twitter wanted to know the legal nuts and bolts behind all the bluster.

So here's a look at the stories and statutes our Facebook followers were engaging with the most this June (with a sixth added for the sixth month):

1. Supreme Court Vacates Ruling Allowing Immigrant Teen to Obtain Abortion

In an odd bit of legal posturing, the Supreme Court overturned a lower court's ruling that allowed an undocumented immigrant teenager to obtain an abortion while under detention. But the girl had already undergone the procedure in the meantime, so what does the ruling mean?

2. Crossing the U.S. Border: Laws & Regulations

Much has been made in the news and courts recently about entering the country illegally, but what if you're coming in and out of the United States legally, as a citizen, on a green card, or just as a tourist? Here's what you need to know.

3. Oklahoma OKs Sweepin' Medical Marijuana Law

The Sooner State became the latest to OK medical marijuana, and its regulations on pot possession are a little less restrictive than most medical states.

4. $4 Pain and Suffering Jury Award in Police Shooting Gets Reduced to Zero: How?

A father of three was shot and killed in his own home, and the jury gave each of his children just $1 for their pain and suffering (and another dollar to pay for funeral costs). Then that paltry sum disappeared. What happened?

5. Is Illegal Immigration a Crime? Improper Entry v. Unlawful Presence

While overstaying your visa may not be a crime (even though it can get you deported), entering the country without following the proper procedure is a federal offense. This is especially pertinent to asylum seekers, so learn about the distinction here.

6. The Divorce Process: Do's and Don'ts

Every divorce is different, but they all have some common legal themes. Here's how to protect yourself, while making the process as peaceful as possible.
