Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
There is really no good way to do that. You could add a line like "I have placed a copy of all materials related to this case with my attorney should they be needed but I trust we can keep this amicable."
That's the only way to say it without being blunt.
You may, however, want to consider getting a lawyer involved just to act as a buffer in this case.
That may provide you some reassurances and it shouldn't be very expensive.
I have to step away from the computer for about 15 minutes or so. If you have any follow up questions you can put them in this thread and I will pick up as soon as I return.
Is it possible to replace the word "attorney" with "several trusted sources"?
Didn't mean to press enter. Disregard my question up to this point.
What if I rewrote the question to say:"I have cataloged all materials related to this case and placed them with several trusted sources should they be needed but my hope is that we can keep this amicable."?
Reason being? I haven't lied to him about anything and I don't want to get caught stating that an attorney holds all the data when they actually don't... yet. Does that make sense?
I am back.
Yes you can replace the wording.
The wording you suggest is excellent.
Thank you :-)
