Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

No

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

We have been divorced for 1.5 years and just finished a difficult custody and attorney fee hearing. He did not fair well and he is angry, bitter and insulting. He sends me degrading texts and calls me names.

Mail tampering is a federal offense and can land the perpetrator in prison. See 18 U.S.C. Section 1708. Click here to file complaint with United States Postal Inspection Service.

Unfortunately, his action does not implicate HIPAA because he is not a covered entity. For more information, click here.

Best wishes,
