Sorry, I am 25 and my name is XXXXX XXXXX initial box was too small. Jen got phone records from the phone company and saw the phone calls I had made to her. She got a hold of rebecca's phone number and had called her. By this point, I hd cut ties with rebecca, but rebecca tried to collect money owed or threatened to talk to jen. I had her sign a conteract stating she would not talk to jen. four days later she called jen from a private number and stated I plotted to kill the baby, attempt to gain full custody. She wrote her statement to the court with the information and I need to rite a responding letter. I am not sure if I should attempt to discredit jen's character by her work. My parents gave her 11k so she could pay off her carrera. She is also 25, owns a condo. cayenne, and got rid of the carrera. Not sure what road I should take and how to do it. Discredit her character? State I was highly medicated due to surgery? What if rebecca testifies?
I have a copy of her letter to the court. What is defamation?
