I need to renew my drivers license. I legally changed my

I need to renew my drivers license. I legally changed my name in 1982 in Colorado. I was born in Indiana and my birth certificate was never changed. I live in Honolulu, Hawaii and requested a copy of my name change from the Colorado court. I've been advised they cannot find a record of the change. I changed it with Social Security also in 1982 and they advised me they do not have the documents I provided them at the change. My social security records are in the new name. What do I do? I can't prove my new name which is on all my records now but it doesn't match my birth certificate and I can't get an ID renewal due to Homeland Security rules.JA: What is your official status? Do you have any pending applications or petitions with USCIS?Customer: NoJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: NoJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No

I have two problems causing emotional distress, the first is

I have two problems causing emotional distress, the first is Bank of America. theu have a policy that freezes my checking account for what they call suspicious spending. This has happened 3 times and the last two times it took over 4hrs one time and 90 minutes the second time to get someone on the phone to release my money back to me. The first time I found out when I tried to pay for dinner on a Friday night. The second is my roommate and he is doing things intentionally to cause distress. I told him that I would move once I finished this work contract but he constantly is creating situations that are stressful and when I am at work out of town I'm always worried about my personal belongings. I will give more detail if you think I can successfully bring a case against him to to make him stop. I have all emails so everything is documentedJA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: This is California and neither of these are job relatedJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Not yet I was hoping to avoid that but my room mate just won't stop. He is a classic narcissist hitting more than seven of the traits on the narcissist continuem. Misspelled word, sorry.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: only if she wants all of the long details now.

Q. card renewal false usc claim I am a legal permanent

Q.Green card renewal false usc claimI am a legal permanent resident. I have been for 23 years. I have a class b misdemeanor from 13 years ago. I am concerned cause I think I MIGHT have claimed to be a USC on a medicaid application 7 years ago and I have an FHA backed home loan on which the loan officer clicked the us citizen box which I recently discovered. I tried to get this fixed but was told it could not be changed. I went to my biometrics appointment about 2 weeks ago to replace/renew my green card. I am worried these 2 will come up during my background checks. Is this something that can be found out? If so what will happen to me?

American Flight 702 from Dallas to Philadelphia to Venice,

American Flight 702 from Dallas to Philadelphia to Venice, Italy left at 12:15 on July 27, 2016. We were at the airport 2 hours ahead of time - checked our phone to see the flight was leaving out of Gate 36 - just before boarding time we notice very few customers - asked the agent she said the flight had be changed to Gate 30 - we ran - Kathy Parks (ticket agent) told us to board but couldn't take our carryon (it was full). Let my husband through the gate - took our luggage - We asked to please be able to take our jewelry out of the carryon - she pulled the bag behind her and said NO, again we asked and told her the jewelry was in a small bag - easy to get to - please let us get the jewelry bag - again NO and pulling the bag away from us. My husband said something under his breathe - and that's when she said, "You're not going anywhere"At this point we told her we had saved 35 years for this trip - if we didn't make this plane we would miss our 12 days cruise with Oceania - we begged - Please - we're sorry - please don't do this - Please - She held firm - called for security - grabbed her purse and walked away.We went to the customer service people - No help - they could maybe get us on an over night stay (somewhere I can't remember) We'd have to go out of the airport to the ticket counter. I called our travel agent - she found us a flight out in 2 hours on another airlines - if we could get them to let us cancel this one and use them coming home maybe it could be arranged. They Would Not release us - All they kept saying was This is a package trip - You were late - We have to rebook - It was a nightmare!! I again begged "Please let us go to the other airline - we'll keep the reservation with you for the return flight!" After 2 1/2 hours they booked us on the same flight for the next day - kept telling us we couldn't get the same flight back because it was booked. I kept telling them,"It's booked because we are on it!" My question to them was,"Why do you have to cancel our return flight - just leave it the way it is and book us the going out flight!"Finally they did just what I kept asking them to do but now we had to pay another $7000.00 - I was livid - we had already paid this when we booked the flights 3 months earlier.... We were flying Business Class or First Class all the way.We paid since we were not going to miss a trip of a life time!NOW were was our luggage??? We had shipped 4 Large pieces - Were they taken off the plane in Dallas? Had they shipped them to Philadelphia and taken them off there? No One could tell us anything - No one!When we got home I immediately went to American Airlines on line to see if I could check the status of our luggage - It seems our luggage had not only left Dallas to Philadelphia but looked like it was on its way to Venice, Italy without us.The next day we left from Dallas headed for Philadelphia - when we landed I went to the American Customer Service asking if they could please check to see where our luggage was - I had the ticket stubs for our luggage from the day before. All Three agents told me their computers couldn't do that - I would have to find a computer or leave the terminal - go to the ticket counter out front - and just maybe they could check it!!!! I called my travel agent - she went to the American website - baggage - put in our ticket numbers - it showed our luggage had gone on to Venice, Italy.... TSA would surely like to know that Kathy Parks wouldn't let us on the plane but had no trouble letting our 4 Large pieces of luggage go unattended from Dallas to Philadelphia to Venice, Italy.All we want is our money back - some kind of reimbursement - and I do think American Airlines and Homeland Security should be notified about Kathy Parks - I have complained on the American complaint line - Dalila Reade responded by saying - We were late - we talked rudely to Kathy Parks so she had the authority to handle us anyway she wanted - Kathy Parks must have felt we were a security or safety issue to her and other passengers - so American stands behind her - When I asked how Homeland Security would feel about Kathy Parks letting our luggage continue without us she became very quite but never offer me anything kind of compensation.Do we have a case????
