I heard that the age to vote in Switzerland is 18. Is this correct? How long must a person live in Switzerland before they can vote? Is there a law or a rule? We were talking about this at lunch today, and no one really seems to know the answer? Thanks if you do! CarmelaR

Hi, I am in dispute with a Swiss bank that I believe has acted unfairly. If I were in the UK I would write either to the BBC Watchdog or one of the financial papers to seek advice and redress. I'd even consider the Financial Ombudsman. Does anyone know if there are the equivalent channels here that I could write to please? Many thanks, Helen

I need some information about opening a bank account here. I would like my wages transferred to an account and stay there, but would like a different one to use for credit cards, debits etc. does anyone have experience with this sort of thing? Does my company assist with the account or should I have it before I start work? I would like to know the answers ahead of time and not have to ask them about every nook and cranny about living here. Denis

Can anyone recommend a migration lawyer for Zurich? It's a fairly straightforward situation but I'd prefer to speak to someone who knows what they're talking about and can help us!

HI all, I was riding my bike today and many bike paths were covered with hay from all the farmers. Does anybody know if there is a law against this? Can't be possible that they are allowed to use the bike line for their work?! thanks for your help.
