I am scheduled to go Oath of Citizenship ceremony on

I am scheduled to go for my Oath of Citizenship ceremony on 7/15/2016. I understand that I will have to surrender my I-551 ("green card") prior to taking the Oath, and turn in N-445. How will I not be in violation of 264(e) of the Immigration Act if I am not in possession of I-551 prior to taking the Oath? Isn't that a trap to allow the federal government to de-naturalize anyone who subsequently becomes a "nuisance" to them, say for expressing lawful critical speech critical of them?

F., Deacon of Property Maintenance at our church and I have

My name is***** of Property Maintenance at our church and I have an issue with an elevator service contract. Let me give you some background on this and why I needed some input. The Deacon of Property Maintenance is a fiduciary position that is elected at our annual business meeting for a (3) year term in office. At the time this contract was accepted and signed by then Deacon of Property on Feb. 2, 2010, he only had (2) years remaining in his position. At the 2012 business meeting another deacon was elected to this position. And at 2015 business meeting I was elected Deacon of Property. Up to this point I had no idea that we were under a service contract with an Elevator Service Company. When I realized the amount we were expending on these maintenance services I decided to look for other sources of service. It wasn't until I located the original contract that I realized that we were apparently locked in. The first contract was for a term of (5) years until Feb. 2, 2015. If we wished to cancel at that time we were required to submit a cancellation request via registered letter, return receipt requested 90 days prior to the expiration date, otherwise contract would renew for another (5) years automatically, which is what happened. Question arises as to whether contract was actually valid at automatic renewal on Feb. 2, 2015, because original deacon who signed was no longer a deacon and fiduciary representative of the church and could not make any future financial decisions? So should the document with his signature be considered void?Mike F.Deacon of Property Maintenance

Story short, I have been cited with a barking dog complaint

Long story short, I have been cited with a barking dog complaint by the Police. I do not know who filed the complaint. I was told that a police car parked in my driveway, while I was not home and held a device out the window pointing at my dogs, who were in a fully enclosed yard,. The person did not know if it was a recorder or a walkie talkie, but he remained on my property for approx 10 min. This caused stress to my dogs and they barked at him the whole time. 1. he was on my private property, Is this permissable? 2. Was he guilty of entrapment by making my dogs bark, when they were in this instance being protective of their property? On Wednesday the Chief of Police came to my door and informed me that I was being sited for dogs being "unreasonable unloud" & "disturbing the peace and quiet of the neighborhood". I was told I had to come to the station to pick up my citation. I advised him I was unable to come to him for an hour as I had a handyman doing some work. He said "never mind he would bring it to me his self". Then proceeded to question if my vehicle was registered and if it was in my name only. When I said it was he said he would get all my info from the plates and he left. Later in the day he returned with the ticket and has me sign. I have to appear this morning at 9am to plead. Question is: Was I properly cited? According to just answer, the complainant should have come to me first and the dog warden should have been notified. Police are to be involved in case of immediate danger. To answer your probable question: Yes I do have 6 small dogs, yes, they do bark, (but that is what dogs do), They are all licensed, fully vetted and microchipped. they range from 9 pounds to 20 pounds and 18 months to 16 years old. They are also not the only dogs in the neighborhood who do what dogs do...bark

I was on craigslist and answered an ad on casual encounters.

I was on craigslist and answered an ad on casual encounters. Turns out the woman on the other side of the screen was 16. We never met or did anything sexually. She says she is working with a private investigator and will go to the police if I do not pay $1000 western union. I feel like I am being scammed. Please help me.

To Whomever this Concerns, I was using an online dating

To Whomever this Concerns,I was using an online dating site called Plenty of Fish.It is an 18 an older website.I was contacted by a girl who got my number off of Plenty of Fish, who began asking me weird question like if I liked porn or whatever. She then began to send me nudes and then after the fact claimed she was 16.I rarely ever drink alcohol and this was on Mother's Day and I had enough to be drunk.Thinking this was some kind of joke, after she asked a few times to see a picture of my member, I sent a random dick pic that I found off of the internet.Few days go by, I had pretty much forgotten about this encounter until today when I received a voicemail from(###) ###-####The Voicemail claimed that someone had contacted them the day before. They claimed that it was an undercover officer's daughter (something along that line, the message was very low quality for some reason.) He then threw out a badge number and stated that I could contact the father and try to resolve this peacefully before he turns in the phone to be scanned tomorrow morning, at which point a warrant could be sent out for my arrest (so he claims) and I could be sent to prison and be labeled a sex offender.Finally he gives the father's number(###) ###-####two times stating that if I wanted to at the end.So panicking, I called the number and managed to get a hold of the "father" (He sounded earily similar to the Voicemail). Anyways, he goes on to explain that he was coming home from work and wanted to spend time with his family for mother's day, walks in, catches his daughter "making a porno" and once she notices her father, throws the laptop across the room causing it to shatter. The $ather stating that he went to prison once, claimed that he would let everything go if I would replace the laptop. I began to offer to do so immediately and as soon as possible at which point he suddenly claimed that the laptop had already been replaced and that he would have to contact his mother-in-law or sister-in-law to see how she wanted to receive payment. He then told me it would be $1800 after exclaiming that they had had it for less than 6 months. I happily agreed and awaited him to call me back, when my dad intercepted the call, and pretended to be me (unfortunately) and asked the guy for his address or a place they could meet up to give him he money, and the guy got real dodgy, asking him to go to a Well's Fargo, at which point My dad got very upset and called him out on this "Extortion" he called it. The father nonchalantly dropped "Police" at the end of the conversation and hung up.So Finally, at this point, I need some peace of mind.What is my next step from here?Is this truly a scam?Is there anything I can do to protect myself?

I meet a girl online who told me she was 20(I'm 28). We talked

I meet a girl online who told me she was 20(I'm 28). We talked for a week and in this time frame she told me she has a 3 year old kid, is in college and and was in the process of starting her own bussines. One night she asked me for a video and a nude. I sent them and she sent me something back(sexual). She added me on snapchat about a week after this and posted a pic of her in what looked like a high school. I asked her why it looked like she was in a high school and she told me she is really 18. I got pissed and blocked her from all contact, now I'm worried though. What if she is lying about being 18, she already lied once. Could my life be over if she lied about her age?

I believe I have become a target of entrapment and extortion.

I believe I have become a target of entrapment and extortion. The person who has threatened me with this (inderectly) has led me to believe that he lives in a different state upon me asking about the area code he contacted me from. The situation involves a minor, and he has led me to believe that he is her father. I had contact with the minor (as she had led me to believe at the time she was 18 and local to my area) and later was told by her that she was only 16. The next day our conversation over text turned into a sexual nature, after a time my responses to her regarded the fact that she was only 16 and a minor, and I had no intent of continuing the conversation in a sexual way. Our conversation returned to normal after that. This morning, I was contacted by someone who led me to believe was her father, saying my full name at the beginning of his text message. I had never given her (the minor) my full name directly. It would have need to have been obtained from Meet Me, the site we started contact on. He wished me to contact him, saying that he wanted to talk to me or the situation would be turned over to the authorities. We spoke after that, and aside from initial fatherly concern, mentioned that she (the minor) had tried to commit suicide this morning (4/26), and in her statement given to the authorities, said that she had done it because she didn't want to get in trouble and didn't want me to get in trouble. He started mentioning medical bills and bills for counseling and, basically, came out telling me that if I helped out with those costs, he would be willing to walk away from the situation and we would all go our separate ways. My question is: what do you recommend I do/pursue doing regarding this situation?
