Certified Mail and the Ex


#1

I’m not sure that the return address matters legally, after all, that’s where the letter goes if it is NOT delivered to the addressee. Make sure that if you use a different return address, maybe one that he won’t recognize, that the letter can still come back to you if he it isn’t delivered to him.
You can use it in court since it’s certified.
How could he say that he was tricked? A certified letter addressed to him is delivers and he signs for it. There’s no trick there. I’ve heard of people lying to gain access to a person to serve subpeonas before, so as long as he gets the letter it shouldn’t make any difference how. And with certified mail, you would have proof that he received it. Yes, it may be sneaky but I don’t think it’s illegal. Good Luck.

Dear patricia:

Greetings. I don’t see why it would not be legal, but I don’t know federal postal laws. Sure, you can use it in court to prove he received the letter. No, he cannot say that he was tricked.

Remember though that your settlement negotiations are not admissible. Thank you and good luck.

[i]Originally posted by patricia[/i] [br]I have sent my ex a letter and he never responded. I am planning on sending it certified. Two questions. 1. Is it legal to send it certified but have another return address on it other than mine? 2. Can I use this in court that he received it? 3. Can he use the issue that he was tricked and be able to use it against me or make the certified invalid?
