Hi, welcome to JustAnswer. My name is*****’m a barrister with 12 years of experience and I am happy to help with your question today.
Thanks for the information
You really don’t need a phone call and it will increase costs.
There is no reason that the malicious communications act cannot be used for domestic situations and it commonly is.
