I have a question in regards to defamation/libel. There was

Good Evening. I have a question in regards ***** ***** There was a family issue between my mother and I. She has disowned me. My 14 year old son posted on his Facebook how he was tired of the drama as well as that his grandmother needed to get over it. A family relative who I do not associate with commented. Her comments ranged from her stating I am miserable excuse of a daughter/granddaughter/niece/sister/cousin/wife/mother, I am bi-polar and have mental health issues, that my husband and I have been evicted from numerous places, that I lied about being molested by her son, lied about being raped, I'm a promiscuous lying slut/whore/skank?white trash ho, a jealous selfish pathetic excuse for a human being, I stole from my mother, my husband is as pathetic as me, his PTSD is fake, he deserted his own kid, he acknowledged my son only for his SSI check, to have our other 3 kids paternity tested because their not his, our children have been expelled/suspended from school, my husband kept us locked away in a house, etc. A friend suggested I seek an Order of Protection for our children as well as suing her for defamation and libel.

My 401K plan Administrator, Fidelity Investments, has

My 401K plan Administrator, Fidelity Investments, has declared that my 401K loan is in default without giving proper and timely notification to me. According to my 401K handbook page 14, I should receive notification if any payment is missing. I did not receive any notification from Fidelity before the loan was in default in Jan 2016. I found out this issue in April 2016 and call Fidelity. Fidelity claimed they send me one post mail and email on Dec 21, 2015. I later found the email in my "Spam" email folder and never received the post mail. Fidelity say it is not their responsibility about lost email and they are not obligate to send more than 1 notice. Currently, the loan is in default and I am liable to pay an approximate penalty and taxes of $15,000 next year. This large amount of money is a financial burden that I cannot afford. I need some help.JA: What state is this in? And when did the issue begin?Customer: I worked in CA, I left the company on Nov 2012.JA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: full timeJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I can give you the letter sent to Fidelity if you like.

Regarding a civil litigation lawsuit, I am writing a settlement letter with a heading stating " For settlement purposes only" I am aware this prevents the use of the contents of the settlemnt letter in court. Can this settlement letter be sent to anyone else besides the defendants in the case? If so is there any issue, later on, voiding the For settlement purposes only clause? Any other settlement letter do's / don't suggestions are appreciated.

My bank gave a third party access to my banking online and 3

My bank gave a third party access to my banking online and 3 years worth of my bank statements through their banking online. I had them close my account, but they didn't do it properly and charged me a $25 "fee." They wouldn't let me open another checking account, but rather a savings account which now requires me to have a daily minimum balance. So now I have 2 accounts, 3 in total, and someone has 3 years of my bank statements saved on their computer. I am out no monetary damages except the $25, and the minimum daily balance as of right now, but this is a gross violation of my privacy, and I do not know what my recourse is.
