Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Thank you for your question. It would be my pleasure to assist you. I will be going line by line so I will post my thoughts based on what I see. 1. There is no reason to justify yourself or your expenses. I see that as opening the email from the defensive which is setting the wrong tone.2. Beyond that the letter is quite good You may want to put your justification for withholding as a second paragraph and add a first paragraph summarizing what the email would be about. While I would usually suggest that you start with the more formal response, the way your email 'flows' together is very well done.3. About the only thing I would suggest is soften the language very slightly from "will be paying" to "may be paying"--since the courts are not guaranteed, it is both more accurate and appears to be less of a direct threat.Good letter otherwise, and one that if she sends to her attorney, she would end up taking seriously.
