I got a denial on an immigration application that has taken

I got a denial on an immigration application that has taken over year in processing singularly because of an incompletely filled medical examination and vaccination record form by a designated civil surgeon. Not only does this have significant ripple effects on other things, any attempts to appeal this decision will incur additional costs on me due to the negligence of the civil surgeon. Please advise what are possible options.JA: What state are you in?

Tina, I have an Ohio Employer question regarding letting

Hi Tina, I have an Ohio Employer question regarding letting someone go. Is this a field in which you have the expertise to assist me? Thank you, PattyJA: OK. To minimize me, please click the down arrow at the top right corner of this box.Customer: Hi Pearl - Just noticed your name was on the screen for Tina. Can you assist me with an Ohio Employer question regarding letting an employee go? Thank you, PattyJA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: OhioJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: No.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Yes. I have an employee who just is not fit for this position. I purchased the company a few years ago and inherited the employees. Most are working out. This woman is a very nice person and I keep hoping she will start to work faster or catch on better than she has, but she has not. I am getting ready to write up a paper explaining to her all of the reasons we are going to have to let her go by end of this week. THEN when she came in this morning she told me she is making a doctors appointment for her knee she has been having problems with for a month or so. I see this turning to her taking time off work because of her knee complications, which I would not have a problem - but now I am worried that she may want to go on disability if the doctor tells her to stay off of her knee and that I would then have to keep her as an employee and would not be able to let her go due to her inability to work up to par for the position. Thank you! Patty

I had a verbal agreement with an HVAC company's residential

I had a verbal agreement with an HVAC company's residential expert to install what is called a hyper heat mini split heat pump. On his won, without telling me or asking me or getting my permission he substituted a unit that is much less efficient. In an email he admits this but says he only charged me for the lesser unit. I didn't find out about the switch until the installation was completed two days later. It has been a year and I see it does not heat in low temperatures. Does the email give me evidence sufficient for a small claims court suit?JA: What state is this in? And can you tell me a little more about the charge?Customer: This is Virginia. I paid a total of $6000 fo the equipment and labor. I would be charging breach of contract and/or fraud.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I went to court the other day asking $25000 but not knowing procedures. I have to send a bill of particulars by three weeks, and trial set for June 30.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: There was incompetence in several areas of their work. I did about 5 things for the installation myself. They didn't provide a base for the unit ever.

Tina, I reserved a small for a baby shower last August and

Good Morning Tina, I reserved a small hall for a baby shower last August and gave in the requested $300 deposit. I then had to cancel due to the fact that the amount of people necessary for the party was less than expected. Nowhere on the contract does it state that the $ is "non-refundable". I contacted them so many times I stopped counting and never even received a reply. Can I sue to get those funds back? I live in New Jersey. Thank you for your help.

My question is similar to one you answered online. I signed

My question is similar to one you answered online. I signed a lease for an apartment in Puerto Rico for one year. However the job I took there has turned out to be utterly miserable. My lease states that if I leave prior to one year I will owe all that rent! Is there a way to get out of this mess? This job is not tolerable - I am a nurse and this job is unsafe. I am afraid of losing my license because they are so dysfunctional. Thanks for any advice!JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Puerto Rico!JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I have not even tried telling them I want to leave yet if thats what you meanJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No I don't think so
