What can I legally do to take action against the mormon church? I was born into the mormon religion, and left when I was 16. I have just recently tried to get my records removed from the church (resignation) after finding out that I am still c...
Why do you believe that you have the right or power to order that a private organization remove information about you in its records?
You certainly have a legal right not to be forced to be a member of a religious group.
I am not aware of any law in the US that would require a private group to delete its records. There certainly are laws that would enable you to sue the group if it disseminate false information about you.
The courts generally do not hear cases about the internal working of a religious organization.
Your least troublesome resolution probably lies in your ignoring the group and go on living your life (in lawful ways) as you want.See question
My school had an after party like most schools do for prom, and some people rented a house and the owner wanted some IDs from the people staying there, I was asked for my ID simply because I was one of the peopel that were supposed to spend the ni...
"My school had an after party". Your school almost certainly did not sponsor an after party party. A group of students at your school might have organized the event without the school's authorization or participation.
The persons at the after prom party likely were engaging in unlawful conduct, such as underage drinking, smoking, possibly using controlled substances.
It likely would be rather foolish for a property owner to sue the persons who rented out his property to engage in unlawful conduct. He may well face criminal law charges for encouraging and enabling the underage drinking and other unlawful conduct.
Merely being in a place that suffered damages does not make a person (such as you) liable unless you agreed to be liable (such as by signing a contract).
Some high school graduates are not yet 18 and generally cannot sign contracts that can be enforced against them.
If you are being sued, you should be reviewing the specific facts with your attorney to find out your legal options.See question
I'm from Nepal moved to USA with my parents when I was 13 now I'm 20 and applying to be flight attendant I have my green card would I need anything else to be hired by an American airline.
Did one or both of your parents become a US citizen while you were under 18? If yes, you likely are now a US citizen; you would have automatically become a US when the conditions specified in INA 320 were met.
You need to contact the airline where you want to work to find out its requirements for its employees.See question
We have lived together for two years and she submitted paperwork for post secondary child support. How much of an impact does my income have on his support?
Your incomes have no significance in your boyfriend's family law case unless he ask the court for a deviation from the standard child support calculations. He would still need to disclose the incomes of all adults living in his household.
There is no standard calculation for postsecondary education support. However, if the boyfriend tells the judge that he does not have the income to pay postsecondary education support, the judge likely will treat that as asking for a deviation and consider your incomes in deciding whether the boyfriend has enough resources to support himself.
Your boyfriend should review his specific facts with his attorney to find out his legal options.See question
My minor child was given a summons from someone. It is from a collections agency and I have no idea what the debt is even for as it is not stated. The summons says that I have 20 days to respond, but the date on the paperwork says August 9, 2016, ...
A 17-year-old, for example, is a minor child in WA. However, that 17-year-old almost certainly is a person of suitable age and discretion who can receive documents for another person being sued and living in the same household with the 17-year-old.
A 5-year-old likely is not a person of suitable age and discretion for effective service.
If you do not believe you owe the money, the best time to take care of the case is now. If you do not take the appropriate action, a default judgment will be entered against you. While you may be able to get the default judgment vacated, that will take more time and effort than resolving the case now.
"Can they garnish my paycheck". With a judgment, the creditor can take statutory steps to collect, including taking some money from your paychecks and taking all the money in your bank accounts.
What you should do is promptly reviewing the specific facts with your attorney so that appropriate steps can be taken before a default is entered.See question

A person is a member of an HOA only because 1) the person agrees to be in the HOA when it first started; or 2) bought a property that is already part of an HOA. You cannot be conscripted into an HOA.
If your property is a part of an HOA, you are subject to the lawful rules of that HOA. If you do not like a rule, you can convince the other members of the HOA to change the rule.
If the rules provide for no parking on the streets, it would not matter that "the cars were only left in the street for very short intervals of time." The cars apparently were there long enough for someone to notice them and take pictures of them.
The issue you likely should look into likely is how can the HOA prove that the alleged violations are your responsibility. Just because a car is parking in the street in front of a house does not necessarily mean the car was parked there by someone in the house.
If your renters or their guests are parking out in the street, you need to tell them to stop parking out in the streets. You need to give them a copy of the HOA documents. If the renters buy the property, they are legally entitled to a copy of the HOA documents.
If you do not take care of the fines (either by paying or contesting), the HOA rules almost certainly give the HOA the legal right to lien against your property.
You should check out whether you are legally in an HOA and what the rules of the HOA are if you are in the HOA.See question

How are YOU going to financially support the child? If you are thinking that the boyfriend will financially support the child, you may be wrong. If you look over the past posts on this message board, you will find many about parents who do not financially support their children.
What are your plans for your future? Going to school with a dependent child is not easy.
At 16, you likely have no job skills that would qualify you for a well-paying job. School is the usual way to get the qualifications for a well-paying job.
The age of sexual consent in WA is generally 16. That is, persons who would not be prohibited from marrying each other were they older would not face criminal law charges for consensual sexual activities with each other.
Having, taking, or doing anything with sexually explicit images of a person under 18 may lead to child pornography charges for both you and the boyfriend.
"He and I have an amazing relationship." How would you know? How much experience do you have to know whether the relationship is amazing or otherwise?
There is no need to rush to have a baby. You should prepare a future for yourself and any children you may have in the future.See question
I'm a conditional resident. I'm currently unemployed. I apply for Medicaid (Washington Apple Health) as a health insurance and it's all free. They approved my application and I now enroll in Medicaid. I did my research and get mixed answer whether...
"Does enrolling in Medicaid make me a "public charge"?" Literally, yes, enrolling in Medicaid makes the enrollee a public charge as Medicaid is a means-tested public benefit.
The bottom of Form I-864P has a short summary of what are means-tested public benefits.
The good news for you is that almost certainly the program you enrolled in is not designated a means-tested public benefit by WA. You can check with the office that administer your program to see whether the program is a means-tested public benefit for immigration purposes.
WA has many health programs for children and pregnant women regardless of their immigration status.
"it's all free." Nothing is free. While you may not be paying directly, someone is paying. You are also paying indirectly in increased sales taxes, fees, and other taxes.See question
Hi I have a lawyer who does not answer my call or email, what should I do. She already got paid from me. It's marriage annulment case
Did you actually hire a licensed attorney? There are several persons pretending to be licensed attorneys but are not.
You can verify whether the person is licensed as an attorney with the WA State Bar Association at https://www.mywsba.org/LawyerDirectory.aspx . The WSBA licenses and regulates attorneys in WA on behalf of the WA Supreme Court.
If the person is a licensed attorney, you can physically go to the attorney's office to see what is going on with your case. If you cannot find the attorney or she does not provide a satisfactory answer, you can report her to the WSBA. Filing a complaint with the WSBA is free. If the attorney does not provide you with a refund or perform the work for you, you can apply to the WSBA's Client's Protection Fund. You will get back your money eventually.
If the person is not a licensed attorney, you can file a police report as practicing law without a license is a crime.See question
I might have hit a car without knowing it
Hit and run is actually a criminal law violation, not a traffic ticket. The level of the crime depends on whether the vehicle that was hit was occupied by persons and their injuries.
The statutes are in Chapter 46.52 RCW (ACCIDENTS—REPORTS—ABANDONED VEHICLES).
If you have insurance, you also needs to report the incident to your insurer for it to cover any financial damages.
Before you do anything with the insurer or the police, you likely should review the specific facts with your attorney.See question
