Here is a great Question and Answer page from the State of Oregon about employing minors. It is totally legal for a 15 year old to work. Minors can start at 14.
They asked if I was a US citizen. I told them I wasnt. They asked for two valid Id's, which they said a DL and a bank debit/credit card would work. I had both; Washington drivers license, credit car, my Work Authorization Card, valid SS card ...
I agree with my colleague that you have solved your problem by going elsewhere, but I wanted to explain something about the legal system here. Just as an FYI- you, or anyone, can sue anyone, in the United States. BUT, and this is a big but, your lawsuit will only make it to court if you have damages (something to win) and you can prove them. Think of this fact - approximately 3% of the civil cases filed each year actually go before a judge. Of the 97% remaining- Some settle, some are dismissed by a judge, and the rest just fall away.
Say you sued the bank. Would you do it in small claims court or in the regular court? In small claims, a judge can only award money damages. He or she cannot force the bank to open an account for you. So, you have to be able to PROVE that you were harmed financially by Chase, in X amount of dollars and that is what the judge should award you. If you went to the regular circuit court (the regular big court when we think of it) you would either ask for the same amount of proven $$ damages or ask for a specific or eqitable relief by way of Permanent Injunction because the money damages won't solve your problem. You want the judge to make them give you the account. This is MUCH more difficult because not only do you have to file more paperwork but you have to prove to the Court that you have suffered "irreparable harm" by Chase not giving you the account.
You haven't. You had two other banks offering you their business.
And honestly, if the Judge forced Chase to open an account for you after you had to sue them, would you want to do business with them anyway?See question
I was heading to a restaurant near work before heading into work. I stopped at a stop sign, waited about 3 minutes and looked to my left and right multiple times. As I was crossing the main road, this guy T-boned me. My car's passenger side has ...
You waited three (3) minutes at a stop sign?
In that amount of time, I just set down my computer and went to my kitchen, grabbed some water and a bowl of Easter egg Whoppers, came back to my room and discovered that my dog greatly enjoys said Whoppers and shared several with her.
Three minutes is a looooong time. This makes me think that you either were doing something while at your stop sign, or had to wait for traffic coming from your left and right (more likely scenario) since they had no stop sign.
If the latter is the case, and you didn't see the guy when you entered the intersection it is still your fault for failure to yield. It may be mitigated, or reduced, some by the other driver's failure to slow down or stop and instead just ram his way through. Let your insurance company deal with him and his insurance.
Good luck to you. Hope you didn't sustain major injuries.See question
My granddaughter is 17 and pregnant and the guy she's with is 21. She'll be having her baby in June and will be 18 in February. Is it safe for her to put him on the birth certificate? I'm her legal guardian and I don't want to press charges and ne...
I agree with Ms. Hanisco. The absolutely worst thing that could happen would be for your granddaughter's. boyfriend to be taken into custody at the hospital while greeting or holding his newborn baby. Contact a criminal defense attorney BEFORE anything happens to your family and strongly encourage him to do the same.
Good luck and congratulations on the babbiekins,

I am getting sick and have rashes from mold exposure. Been to doctor multiple times now too.
I agree with both of my colleagues but as Mr. Abbott says look for a landlord-tenant attorney who has experience and a good traack record (do ask, it's ok!) in mold cases. You will want someone with experience. You can always call the Oregon State Bar Lawyer Referral Service at (503) 684-3763 or 800.452.7636. You can even fill out a request online at https://www.osbar.org/public/ris/
When you are given the name of an attorney, and have looked them up, they meet your needs, you can call or Skype for a consult of up to 30 minutes for $35. It's an amazing deal.
BUT, then, if you bring a suit against your landlord or any other people, be prepared for the time - a year or two maybe, and the expense, lawsuits cost THOUSANDS of dollars. People always think that the side who done us wrong needs to pay for it all, and maybe they will, but not until the very end when all the court costs are distributed. To keep your lawyer working and hire your experts (who will be quite spendy) you may have to shell out a good amount of cash. Many lawyers take $10-15,000 as their initial trial retainer. And it has to be maintained at the same amount each month. Sounds scary, but it's just what you MAY have to deal with.See question

Mr. Stevens is a rockstar to find that for you. That's what I got to say. Rockstar. And if you end up needing to sue, call his office first.
P.S. I changed the practice area since, although it was for your education, it falls more under the contract you signed and the debt you owe pursuant to this contract.
Good luck!See question
If an adult teacher suggest that other faculty members at a school are looking at the body of a minor in a sexual way, does that count as sexual harassment? I am thirteen years old, and felt extremely uncomfortable and unsafe at school for a few d...
Attorney Bodzin is 100% correct. Teaching girls to dress in a more modest manner says "It's not my fault that [next] girl was raped. She must have been dressed like a sleazy ho'!" In fact, it's not the raped girls' fault at all. Ever. The responsibility falls SOLELY on the rapist - who is the one who MUST BE TAUGHT that it is NEVER OK to leer, catcall, harass, or EVER make advances on a 13 year old child. Dress codes are boring, yes. And they make a student body uniform so no one feels embarrassed, yes. But adult faculty who are looking at their students through sexual eyes? Gross and NEVER OK. Instead of telling this young lady to baggy up, the adult should be telling administration to have a harassment and abuse PDU refresher.

Also, just a good practice - there are all sorts of judges and attorneys (prosecutors and defense) who read the questions and answers on AVVO. When you pose questions, keep them as vague as possible and don't put in case-specific facts.
You should ask your own lawyer these questions. Don't put stuff like this on the internet.
Hope court went well.See question

There are very specific rules to what she can do with your things, involving giving you written notice either in person or by first class mail. If in person, you have to contact her within five (5) days, if by mail you get eight (8) days to respond. Then you must arrange a time within fifteen (15) days when you will get your things out. If you don't respond at all, or if you respond but then don't show up within that 15 day arranged time, she can sell your things. She CANNOT KEEP THEM FOR PERSONAL USE. Out of the sale proceeds She is allowed to reimburse herself for any money spent on notices for the sale, and moving and storage fees. The rest goes back to you.

If I have an eviction in California will it affect my ability to rent in oregon?
You also don't want to lie on applications. If you are asked if you have been evicted, better to be upfront and tell the tale than to fail to disclose by checking the "No" box and then getting denied because it shows up on your credit report.See question
