Florida man evicted due to pets he owned

This blog has covered a variety of reasons why evictions occur, such as back rent and disrupting the peace. However, it is important for landlords and tenants to remember that evictions may happen as a result of other factors, such as pets which are considered a nuisance. In Miami-Dade, and communities in other Florida regions, there are times when landlords may have to make tough decisions, which generate an array of problems for tenants. For those on both sides, understanding and abiding by the law is vital.

Handling workplace injuries as an immigrant

If you have moved to the United States to pursue your career, it is essential to understand your rights.

Identifying unlawful national origin discrimination

Under federal law, it is illegal for employers to discriminate against employees based on their national origin, according to the United States Department of Justice. Unfortunately, national origin discrimination occurs too often in Miami, and elsewhere in this U.S. Sometimes, those who have immigrated to the U.S. and their family members suffer in numerous ways after experiencing discrimination, whether they struggle with financial burdens brought on by the loss of a job or emotional issues such as depression and anxiety.

Applying for U.S. citizenship after a divorce

There are many paths to citizenship, whether someone is born in the U.S. or gets married to a U.S. citizen. In a recent post, this blog addressed immigrants and domestic violence. In Miami-Dade, and across other sections of Florida, victims of domestic violence and those who wish to divorce for other valid reasons should not feel like they are trapped in a marriage solely because of immigration matters. At Cuevas, Garcia & Torres, P.A., our law firm can understand how upsetting this situation can be for those who wish to apply for U.S. citizenship.

From adjusting to life in a new country to finding work and maneuvering the immigration process, people who move to the U.S. may experience a plethora of hurdles.

Assisted living residents in Florida say they were told to leave

On this blog, various examples of disputes between landlords and tenants have been posted. However, it is important to recognize the diverse nature of some of these disputes, which sometimes lead to legal action. In Miami-Dade, landlords and tenants alike may find themselves falsely accused of an offense. Under these circumstances, it is vital for people to familiarize themselves with real estate law and carefully present their side of the story if they have to head to court.

Does the Immigration and Nationality Act protect abuse victims?

When it comes to divorce and immigration, people may have a variety of concerns. Unfortunately, some people are afraid to leave their marital partner when they experience domestic violence.

If you are going through this in Miami-Dade, or any of Florida's regions, it may be helpful to know your rights under the Immigration and Nationality Act.

Florida construction lien results in foreclosure

When it comes to foreclosures, the details will vary from one case to another. For example, a homeowner may find themselves in the middle of a foreclosure defense, fighting to save the place which their family calls home. Or, perhaps a business will have one of their properties in foreclosure, which can result in various difficulties for the company. In Miami-Dade, Florida, foreclosures have been a serious problem for people from all sorts of backgrounds in recent years.

Domestic violence and permanent residence conditions

According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, there are a number of resources available to assist immigrants who are subjected to domestic violence.

However, those who obtained permanent residence through marriage may wonder how splitting up with their spouse could affect their resident status.

When it comes to evictions, people from a wide variety of backgrounds may find themselves in a difficult position.

At the same time, landlords in Miami-Dade and elsewhere in the state may be forced to make a hard decision and evict a tenant for any number of reasons, from the non-payment of monthly rent to controversies and the concerns of other tenants.
