Data shows rise in Venezuelans seeking asylum in the U.S.

The immigration policy of the United States is in flux with the debates regarding travel bans and walls that have arisen with the presidency of Donald J. Trump. Even with that, other issues have continued as before. Florida residents who are in the U.S. after seeking asylum and those who have relatives who are trying to do so must be aware of the current realities. The ongoing problems in Venezuela illustrate this as it is one of the countries that has the largest number of people seeking to come to the U.S. for safety reasons.

Cashews with glass in the packaging leads to product recall

For Miami residents who purchase an item, the last thing they will be thinking about is that it will be manufactured, produced, packaged and sold if there is a danger to it or a flaw within it. However, it does happen with a variety of products including food. While vigilant companies will do what they can to prevent this from happening and will take steps for a product recall if it is found to be dangerous in some way, problems will still happen. If a person is injured, suffers an illness or dies because of a food item, it could be the basis for a products liability lawsuit.

What is necessary for naturalization and to pass the test?

People in Florida who are immigrants and would like to be naturalized American citizens often worry about many different factors in their efforts to receive naturalization. These ancillary issues are important, but should not supersede the basics to becoming a U.S. citizen. These include the initial requirements for naturalization and the naturalization test.

What are investor based visas?

Not everyone who comes to Florida or anywhere in the U.S. as an immigrant is doing so to look for work or to join family members. Some would like to enter the U.S. to start a business as an investor. A person who does this might be eligible for investor based visas. There are certain rules for a person to receive a Green Card through investment. Knowing how to meet these rules is vital to getting this type of Green Card.

Fatal boating accident statistics show rise in 2016

With watersports and boats used as a common recreational activity in Miami and throughout Florida, it is essential that those who take part in the activity understand that there are certain risks involved with it. Unfortunately, some of these enjoyable trips out on boats end with a fatal accident. These happen for a variety of reasons and statistical studies attempt to delve deeply into them to prevent a recurrence. One new report from the U.S. Coast Guard says that there were more recreational boating fatalities in 2016 than in the past five years.

What is the criteria for an orphan adoption to the U.S.?

Florida residents who are seeking to adopt a child from overseas should be aware of the orphan process used by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. Given the fluctuating and unpredictable events that are happening in the world today, more and more children are seeking a home and safety in the U.S. There is no shortage of people who are willing to take these children in, but orphan adoption must be done in accordance with the laws for international adoption. This is particularly worrisome with the political climate such as it is.
