    No, if you want to write someone a letter and bring it to its destination yourself, provided you don't have to break into their mailbox to do so, that's fine. Your stamp, etc. is paying for them transporting the letter for you.

    It's okay as long as that letter doesn't contain a passive-aggresive note. :p

    Its a letter for her to pay vet bills that we incurred from when a pack of her dogs came onto our property and attacked our dog. We ask her to pay all or partial payment within 10 days or we will be forced to take the matter to civil court.

    Honestly? I would send something like that with some kind of registered mail service so you can prove it was sent. Otherwise they could just claim they never saw it.

    Get that letter into the mail box and (Long)haul her ass to court. She is legally at fault here.
    HER dogs entered YOUR property and attacked YOUR dog. And she should pay. Any Judge with anything sitting inside there skull will award you the win of the law suit.

    At court......should we just go for the vet bills.....or is there anyway to get more? I had to witness my dog(best friend) getting viscously attacked by five dogs. They had him by the neck!

    As others have stated, definitely send this sort of thing via USPS's Certified mail service with return receipt so you have it documented that the letter was received.

    As to the actual letter, I would refrain from threatening legal action, but rather just state the facts of the situation and provide the details of the veterinary bill incurred. Threats don't help in these situations. If you don't hear back from her, just go speak with a lawyer and proceed from there. (That is also applicable to the last question you posted.)

    Yes, you can sue for inflicted fear and grieveance you were caused. Next time something like that happens you might want to try and fend such dogs with a broom or something. If they turn on you and try to assault you, you can sue for bodily harm and assault. Best advice is go to a lawyer. They'll give you a list of what you can sue your neighbour for in a second.

    We already have the letter typed up with the legal action in 10 days. You think we should leave that out?

    Just go and behead her dogs already. And if you're unlucky enough to be caught, claim you're a werewolf while you're at it.

    You should at least talk to a lawyer. Also, don't sue her for more than you need to. Vet bills, sure, if you had to take the day off work, sue her for lost wages, fine, but none of this "mental anguish" stuff. It's just asking for trouble.
