A Missouri attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. One option could be to check with motor vehicles how long they take to process a replacement title, and if the process could be expedited. Good luck

Ordinarily, in order to get emancipated, you must be financially independent. That works well for actors, musicians, inventors, etc. $14 an hour probably won't cut it

I'm not sure if you are stating that you filed a motion and served the plaintiff with a copy or if you simply wrote a letter to the judge. If the latter, then no. If the former, then you'll have to argue your duly noticed motion and win. Hire an attorney if you can afford one.

At the age of 17, you are no longer considered a "runaway" for police purposes. You could also seek emancipation if you're 17 and living on your own, supporting yourself.

It's a hassle, but definitely doable. On the name-change forms, much of it just asks what you're wanting it changed to. They often won't question the name choice.

If they won't take your request seriously, I think that a stern letter from an attorney will get you some results. If not, you could hire an attorney and sue for misrepresentation or tortious interference with contract.

I’m sorry to hear that. You can sue but it will be your burden to come up with admissible evidence showing that the seller knew about then problem and lied to you. At this point you’ve only articulated highly suspicious timing between the sale and breakdown. Consult with a consumer lawyer... View More

If it is wrapped up and not easy to use, it should be OK. You can always get a long wide mailing tube or a carboard footer tube cut to length and put it in that.

You can sue in small claims court. If you left your clothes in an unguarded dryer, however, I don’t see why the hotel would be deemed liable for an unknown person’s criminal acts.

answered on Aug 31, 2020

It would depend on the program. If you get a certification from some place that no employer knows then don’t expect much weight to be given to it. You are better off going somewhere local and interning at a firm to get experience.
