  • I appreciate your follow up . And understand the messy of wrongful

    I appreciate your follow up . And understand the messy of wrongful prosecution however only concern I have is what if it is just dismissed neutral but not in my favor then I can't do wrongful prosecution. Or if she is a no show on January 8 for my summons. My point is I see two options .. A. Proceed with the summons against me, show I was not malicious or harmful and equal communications occurred .. But she was quite cruel saying terrible things like I don't deserve life or anyone around me when she was told I had cancer. It's just mean but nothing I would press charges over. I send her a notarized letter notifying her all must cease and diciest or I will file charges . Leading to her 'attack first' I do not believe anything I did was wrongful or without cause . Immature maybe, but not wrongful. I don't think I will be satisfied this disrupted my life if it just ends with court saying no she didn't harass you so move on. I will feel the need to wrongful prosecute her and I do t want to because of the time and negative energy it will bring. My hope was if I can charge her then at least my ego is satisfied that I let her know it can be done and will be .. What is the best outcome if I don't charge her and proceed and what can consequences be if the court decides she and I both had Unwelcomed contact and ends neutral ? Sorry I know it's very immature and your expertise is far above this. But please keep in mind mines isn't and this is not my life or what I am used to dealing with. I run a non for profit organization and have a 5 year old. Not to much drama so this is kind of a big deal to me
