Hello. I would need to know further details of the problem in order to provide appropriate legal advice. Should you need further attorney assistance: Some attorneys, myself included, will confer for free, at no charge. Then, if legal work is performed, some attorneys, myself included, will provide a reduced fee for need. All the best.

There is nothing in the Constitution which guaranties you the right to receive mail. If you are having a problem, you might try contacting your local postmaster, or if he or she is the problem, head on up the USPS ladder.


Don't believe you will find an enumerated right to receive mail in the Constitution.
