Where to Invest and Spend Your Retirement As You Deserve.

DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES, May 30, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Retirement is handled differently, depending on where you live in the world, but it seems that most governments and citizens battle with how to fund life after work. Therefore, it is very important to invest your savings and capital wisely once the age of retirement is just around the corner. The best bet is to take matters into hands.
The truth is that there is scepticism among many individuals about their plans for retirement and concern on a large scale about whether current lifestyles can be preserved in retirement. At the same time, for all high net worth individuals around the globe, planning their retirement is a serious matter, it takes time, and it also takes strategy and decisions that might include the family as a whole.

Retirement might be seen by many as the moment of their lives to be quiet and relaxing at home, but in a globalised world, retirement is being taken by the wealthy as the moment to travel the earth with no restrictions and no obligations or schedules to keep track of. Luckily, there is a great number of places and investment opportunities worldwide to choose from for all kinds of individuals, lifestyles, and personalities.

Whether for beach lovers, travellers, architecture & history lovers the range of places where individuals can spend their retirement is wide but, some of these places offer even more benefits and freedom than other popular destinations. No one can deny that the Caribbean, in general, has many benefits; year-round sunshine, golden beaches with crystal-clear sea and a variety of chances to invest.

Caribbean countries such as Grenada, Dominica, St. Kitts & Nevis, Antigua & Barbuda, or St. Lucia favourably offer wealthy foreigners citizenship in return for an investment. These popular Citizenship-by-Investment programs are incredibly charming for wealthy investors and individuals. They are of interest especially for people from the Middle East, China and Russia given the fact that they can obtain a new citizenship and passport at the same time, which opens a wide number of business and travel opportunities; just imagine buying your dream home in front of the beach in the Caribbean while getting visa-free access to more than 110 countries.

For example, among the Caribbean countries that offer citizenship in return for investment, the Island of Dominica is the perfect choice regarding cost-effectiveness. With an investment amount of USD 200.000 or greater in a Government approved real estate project, retirees can secure their dream home in this true tropical paradise while obtaining Dominica Citizenship, which allows visa-free access over 127 countries.

At the same time, Dominica citizens enjoy no taxes on capital gains, gift, inheritance, and wealth, and in case the property is rented, there are no taxes for non-residents, and probably one of the most convenient factors is that the investment is made after the application is approved, not before. Just imagine having a dream home in the Caribbean, sitting in front of the beach to watch the sunset while choosing your next destination in the globe.

Other countries such as Saint Lucia and Grenada offer great real estate investment options along with the amazing landscapes and the chance to have a dream home in one of the most beautiful paradises on earth. Saint Lucia's Citizenship by investment program allows investment in approved real estate projects starting from USD 300.000 to secure its citizenship.

Saint Lucia is recognised as one of the most beautiful and desired locations in the Caribbean, and its passport holders enjoy access to 121 countries including the EU Schengen countries, Hong Kong, and the United Kingdom; as an exclusive, there is no estate or inheritance tax and no taxes on worldwide income. Due to Saint Lucia's popularity as a tourist destination, there are many non-stop flights from the U.S and Europe.

In a similar way, Grenada offers its citizenship to retirees looking forward to investing in real estate projects where they can spend this marvellous period of their lives. With an Investment amount of USD 350.000 in an approved real estate project, investors can secure their dream home, a Grenadian citizenship and passport. This citizenship allows visa-free access to over 120 countries including any Schengen States, UK and Canada. Holders of a Grenadian passport also enjoy no taxes on income, capital gains, gifts, wealth and inheritance and the processing of the application is fast, within four months.

The CBI (Citizenship-by-Investment) programs of St. Kitts & Nevis and Antigua & Barbuda compete with the same investment amount in approved real estate projects as a requirement to qualify for their citizenship. With a minimum investment amount of USD 400.000 retirees can purchase a dream home in any of these two tropical paradises with spectacular beaches and breath-taking landscapes.

For retirees who love history and architecture, the Mediterranean offers a wide number of Real Estate opportunities, and countries such as Malta, Cyprus or Portugal are famous for having large retirees' communities. Malta, for example, opens its doors for investors. With an investment amount of EUR 350,000 in property purchase, a retiree might obtain Maltese citizenship.

Malta passport holders enjoy visa-free access to 166 countries including the UK, Schengen zone and Canada. On the other hand, an EU citizenship allows the right of establishment in all 28 EU countries and Switzerland. Malta is also a highly-respected authority for incorporating low-tax companies with low-income tax, no capital gains tax and inheritance tax, and it is an excellent banking centre with a presence of large international banks.

Nobody wants to come to retirement and feel like life is about to get monotonous. Retirement is the perfect time to make life easier, and a second citizenship and passport contribute tremendously to the freedom and quality of life.

The NCJFCJ Launches National Resource Center on Military-connected Families and the Courts

NCJFCJ launches national resource center on military-connected families and the courts

Focuses on Active Military Families in the Court System

Military families face unique challenges including long separations from one another as a result of deployments or relocations, chronic pain, traumatic brain injury and mental health.”

— Judge John J. Romero, Jr.

RENO, NEV., USA, May 29, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ) announced today that it has launched a website for their project, the National Resource Center on Military-connected Families and the Courts for active duty military members and their families with cases in the juvenile and family court system.

Many overseas conflicts in the last decade have placed substantial stressors on members of our armed forces and their families. Multiple, extended deployments are common and create challenges to family stability and reintegration for those in the military.

“Military families face unique challenges including long separations from one another as a result of deployments or relocations, chronic pain, traumatic brain injury and mental health including depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder,” said Judge John J. Romero, Jr., NCJFCJ president who formerly served in active duty as a naval officer.

The NCJFCJ received funding for a grant from the State Justice Institute (SJI) to address issues for military-connected families and the courts with support and involvement from the U.S. Department of Defense’s Office on Military Community and Family Policy. The National Resource Center on Military-connected Families and the Courts is designed to be a resource for judicial officers and others working in courts with military-connected families in cases involving family violence, protection orders, divorce, child custody, child support, child abuse and neglect, and juvenile delinquency.

“As judicial officers, we hear cases involving domestic violence, abuse and neglect, custody, and child support, juvenile and family courts may be faced with navigating both civilian and military systems, as well as having to consider factors appropriately such as the neurobiological consequences of combat,” said Romero.
The goals of the project are: to increase the effectiveness of juvenile and family courts in cases involving military service members and their families; increase collaboration between civilian and military personnel to resolve case processing issues and to enhance delivery of services to military service members and their families; and promote the exercise of judicial leadership in convening local stakeholders and community groups to form collaborations in order to resolve case processing issues and to deliver appropriate services to military personnel and their families.

“State Justice Institute (SJI) commends the NCJFCJ and its partners on this effort to address the unique issues facing the state courts in serving military families,” said Jonathan Mattiello, SJI executive director. “SJI remains committed to ensuring that military families are given the resources they need to navigate our state court systems.”

Additionally, the National Resource Center on Military-connected Families and the Courts provides resources on legislation, veteran treatment courts, and upcoming events including webinars and the next Military Summit that will be held September 23-24, 2019 in Fort Knox, Ky. For technical assistance regarding military-connected families and the courts, visit the National Resource Center at https://www.ncjfcj.org/Military-Connected-Families.

About the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ):
Founded in 1937, the Reno, Nev.-based National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges, is the nation’s oldest judicial membership organization and focused on improving the effectiveness of our nation’s juvenile and family courts. A leader in continuing education opportunities, research, and policy development in the field of juvenile and family justice, the 2,000-member organization is unique in providing practice-based resources to jurisdictions and communities nationwide.

Transobturator Slings: End of the Road

Sling EBook

Sling Consequences – Read Our Latest E-Book

Transobturator sling design requires blind placement of the device which puts neurological structures in peril to direct injury during placement or overtime.

SANTA BARBARA, CA, UNITED STATES, May 29, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Ten-years ago, the controversy among urogynecologist was if the Ethicon TVT-O (inside to out procedure) was safer as it relates to injury to the neurovascular structures in the obturator fossa compared to the American Medical System Monarc and the Coloplast Aris sling (outside to in). Now, much has changed as the controversy among urogynecologist is when the transobturator sling will be banned by the FDA, because the neuromuscular complications caused by the transobturator slings appear to be ten-times that of the retropubic slings.

Synthetic polypropylene slings used in the treatment of stress urinary incontinence (SUI) include the retropubic sling, transobturator sling, and mini-slings. Each design requires blind placement of the device which puts neurological structures in peril to direct injury during placement or to injury overtime as the device contracts under tension. The specific neurological injuries suffered by women is the result of the design of the device and the blind procedure required for its placement.

Transobturator slings acutely and overtime may cause injury to the obturator nerve which may cause obturator neuralgia that produces symptoms of burning and allodynia in the distribution of the obturator nerve. Women will have complaints of thigh weakness and groin pain. Overtime dyspareunia and vaginal pain may develop as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome Type 1 and is common in women with obturator neuralgia. Overtime, the obturator internis spasma in response to the arms of the mesh piercing its muscle belly and putting the muscle under tension as the arms of the mesh adhere to the inferior pubic rami bone. Spasm and progressive scarring of the obturator internis muscle will cause tension or compression on the pudendal nerve causing symptoms consistent with pudendal neuralgia. As desperate women with pudendal neuralgia undergo pudendal nerve decompression, it is not uncommon to have operative reports indicating scarred down pudendal nerves adhering to the dorsal surface of the sacrospinous ligament.

The Mini-sling, like the transobturator sling, requires blind placement into the obturator membrane which may acutely cause obturator neuralgia by direct injury to the obturator nerve. Overtime, this device may cause obturator neuralgia or pudendal neuralgia as the obturator internis spasm under the tension of the device as the polypropylene shrinks causing traction to these nerves. The Mini-sling device should not cause as much hip adductor myalgia (muscle pain) compared to the transobturator sling as the anchors of the device will not pierce the adductor longus muscle, the gracilis muscle, or the adductor brevis muscle as the device anchors upon the obturator internis. It is not uncommon for the anchors to break-off during attempted surgical removal of the device as the anchors strongly incorporate by scar formation into obturator internis muscle.

Retropubic slings acutely may cause pudendal neuralgia by direct damage to the pudendal nerve branch to the clitoris. These women may have hyperarousal symptoms associated with severe clitoris pain. Overtime women may develop Complex Regional Pain Syndrome Type 1 causing dyspareunia, interstitial cystitis, vulvodynia, and severe pelvic floor spasms. Retropubic slings may cause acute ilioinguinal neuralgia from direct injury to the ilioinguinal nerve as there are normal anatomical variations among women that may take the course of the nerve more medial and may be directly injured by a properly placed sling. Ilioinguinal neuralgia cause pain and burning in the region of the labia majora and groin and overtime these women may develop Complex Regional Pain Syndrome Type 1. Retropubic slings are designed to be tension free but unfortunately that is not the case as the arms often become densely adhered to the pubic bone which will create tension and overtime as the polypropylene device shrink; the result of which will be increasing spasms of the levator muscle. The result is pelvic floor muscle spasm which may cause dyspareunia, interstitial cystitis, and Complex Regional Pain Syndrome Type 1.

John Marshall Law School IP Director Daryl Lim Joins Two Prestigious IP Boards

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS , UNITED STATES, May 29, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Professor Daryl Lim, Director of the Center for IP, Information & Privacy Law at The John Marshall Law School, has been invited to serve on the board of the Intellectual Property Law Association of Chicago. He has also been appointed to the European Science Foundation’s College of Expert Reviewers.

Lim was elected on May 9 at the annual meeting of the Intellectual Property Law Association of Chicago to serve on its Board of Managers. Founded in Chicago as the “Patent Law Association” in 1884, IPLAC is the oldest IP law association in the U.S. IPLAC's more than 1,000 members represent the spectrum of the IP law profession, including attorneys in private and corporate practice, law professors, paralegals, law students and other IP law professionals. IPLAC also has approximately 30 honorary members from the federal judiciary.

Separately, the European Science Foundation recently appointed Lim to its College of Expert Reviewers. Based in Strasbourg, France, the College is a quality-driven network of internationally recognized experts that cover the full spectrum of the scientific landscape, including the humanities, economics, social sciences, physics, chemistry, mathematics, engineering sciences, earth and environmental sciences, life and biomedical sciences. Expert Reviewers assess and evaluate proposals such as post-doctoral fellowship applications and research projects.

“I am honored by the opportunity to serve on IPLAC’s Board of Managers and the Foundations’ College of Expert Reviewers.” Lim said. “These appointments affirm our IP program’s domestic and international prominence. The IPLAC appointment creates another direct link between the law school and attorneys, judges and other legal professions in Chicago, where most of our students work at after graduation.”

“The European Science Foundation’s appointment also happens at a timely juncture. With the law school’s planned integration with the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC), these avenues of collaboration will become more commonplace. These links will help us create new synergies between the IP program and allied fields of study at UIC and beyond.”

Clayton Homes Employees File Class Action Lawsuit for Unpaid Overtime Wages

Home sales consultants and inside sales employees claim they were denied overtime pay due to being misclassified as exempt

BALTIMORE, MARYLAND, UNITED STATES, May 29, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — On Friday May 24, 2019, four former employees filed a class and collective action lawsuit (Case No. 1:19-cv-01546-JKB) against Clayton Homes to recover unpaid overtime wages. Clayton Homes, a subsidiary of Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway company, is the largest manufacturer and seller of mobile homes in the country. Clayton Homes employs Home Sales Consultants and other inside sales employees to assist with selling its mobile homes.

In recent weeks, some of the nation’s largest manufacturers and sellers of mobile homes have come under fire for exploitative and predatory consumer practices. Numerous reports have outlined how some of the country’s largest and most powerful companies, like Warren Buffet’s Clayton Homes, have been able to maximize their profits by raising rent and interest rates on low income families. In April, John Oliver on Last Week Tonight drew national attention to this issue.

While these reports do a great job of outlining how these billion dollar companies mistreat their customers, it begs another question: how do they treat their employees?

Plaintiffs brought their case on behalf of themselves and other Home Sales Consultants who work or worked for Clayton Homes. Plaintiffs allege that Clayton Homes violated the wage and hour provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”) by intentionally misclassifying its Home Sales Consultants as salaried, rather than hourly employees. As a result, Plaintiffs claim that they and other Home Sales Consultants were denied overtime wages. Plaintiffs allege that the type of work they performed did not exempt them from the overtime requirements.

Sometimes, employers will tell employees that they are not owed overtime compensation because they are exempt. However, the FLSA only exempts workers from the overtime requirements if they can meet specific tests regarding how they are paid and the job duties they perform.

According to the Complaint, Plaintiffs and other Home Sales Consultants did not make enough in commissions to exempt them from the FLSA’s overtime requirements. Nonetheless, the Complaint alleges that Clayton Homes required its Home Sales Consultants to work excessive overtime hours without receiving any overtime pay.

Additional information regarding how other Home Sales Consultants who work or worked for Clayton Homes can join this case can be found here or by calling the Law Offices of Peter T. Nicholl at 410-244-7005. The case is entitled Dudley, et al. v. CMH Homes, Inc., (District of Maryland) (Case No. 1:19-cv-01546-JKB).

The Law Offices of Peter T. Nicholl is recognized as a leader in the field of wage and hour litigation. The firm has successfully handled numerous class and collective action lawsuits in the Baltimore-Washington region. The firm is committed to vigorously representing employees whose rights have been violated.

Savory & Partners: Citizenship by Investment

Savory & Partners is a British family company that processes second citizenship-by-investment programs and residency solutions for clients around the world.

High-net-worth individuals from diverse
nationalities are seeking a second citizenship”

— Jeremy Savory

DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES, May 29, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Acquiring a second passport can achieve the peace of mind that you always have another place to turn to. It gives you an escape hatch in times of difficulties. If your country is in a period of instability, you may not be able to travel.

Then, who will give you insurance, security and a better tomorrow? This question; however, triggers a demand for a second citizenship. And interested people must consult dedicated organizations that can simplify the process and guide them in the right direction.

Savory & Partners is a British family company that sources individuals of the highest calibre and processes second citizenship-by-investment programs and residency solutions for them. It is the first citizenship-by-investment company in the Middle East to be approved by all five Caribbean governments. It also covers countries in Europe, including Portugal, Spain, Bulgaria, Greece, Cyprus, and Malta.

People want to be insured and able to provide a better future for their children, from education and healthcare to career and inheritance. They want to enjoy visa-free travel, knowing that they can do whatever they want tomorrow, benefiting from favourable tax regimes in a world of FATCA and CRS, when acquiring a second passport is a big consideration.

Savory & Partners is a Multi-Government-Approved services provider, guiding potential applicants to obtain citizenship through investment to avail global reach and become global citizens. They provide a quick, legal, second passport in just 3-6 months.

High-net-worth individuals from diverse nationalities are seeking a second citizenship. Savory & Partners has processed passports for clients from South America, Eastern Europe, Russia and South Africa – Madagascar and Mauritius – and the Far East – Malaysia and Japan. Everybody has a different motivation to acquire a second passport. However, the company's headquarters are in Dubai, because many of its clients are Middle East nationals who apply for second passports due to the instability in their home countries.

When applying for a second citizenship, applicants should be totally transparent in their application process with the government. Proof of the source of funds today is imperative, as well as declaring everything in the application and being truthful. The applicant should also show that he has earned his funds through legitimate means. Then within 3 to 6 months, Savory & Partners can obtain them the second nationality from the seven countries which are the only countries, through which you can obtain the second citizenship within this said time frame. And increasingly the firm is seeing more clients moving towards the European Union, mainly Cyprus and Malta.

The good news is that the citizenship is transferrable. It’s a citizenship and not a passport. When they issue the passport, they, also issue at the same time, a citizenship certificate. This means it is not a passport that will expire when there are no more pages or when you lose it. It’s a renewable passport and the renewing process will cost its holder a few hundred dollars in the nearest consulate of that country. This citizenship certificate is what will protect you and it’s issued to let you know that you are a citizen of this country.

It means, also, that by law, they cannot revoke the citizenship. This law is part of a legal system in a British Commonwealth or European nation—which are democratically run countries. So, it’s a totally secure citizenship that is not for your lifetime but for your future lifetimes, so whenever you get married and when you get children and your children get married and so on, the citizenship will pass to all the current and new members of your family.

ATLANTA, GEORGIA, USA , May 29, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — In a video interview with AskTheLawyers.com™, divorce attorney Kelli Byers Hooper offered financial tips for couples going through divorce.

She said that finances are the biggest concern for her clients who are considering divorce. This includes how to pay bills, tuition, and mortgages; whether or not they will need to move, and how this will affect their children’s schools; and what their life will look like post-divorce. She covers several topics in the interview, including:

1. Tips for saving money while going through a divorce
2. How staying organized with your paperwork can help the process
3. Whether or not a spouse should remove money from a joint bank account before filing for divorce
4. Options available if a spouse doesn’t have access to the financial records
5. How a stay-at-home parent can afford attorney’s fees in divorce
6. Whether or not you need an attorney to file divorce
7. How often a divorce will end up in court

She explained that she helps her clients save money by asking them to provide several documents at the outset of the case.

“Many times what I’m asking for makes zero sense to the client,” she said. “They’re like ‘why in the world does she need three months of pay stubs and my tax return from last year?’ But as it turns out, if the client provides those documents, then I don’t need to come back and ask follow up questions, which at the end of the day, will save the client money. If a client is responsive to the request of the attorney, then they can save themselves a lot of money.”

Hooper said that many divorce attorneys have methods like this to keep attorney fees as low as possible. For, anyone considering a divorce, she recommends taking advantage of a consultation with an experienced lawyer to understand your legal options to make informed decisions.
