A certified letter is guaranteed by the postal service to be delivered to the recipient. A form is filled out at the post office that contains the name of the sender and the person/place where the letter is sent. The sender receives a receipt and can request they be notified when delivery is made. When delivery is made the a person must sign for accepting the mail. The cost is more than ordinary postage, but it gives the sender proof of having sent the material. Actually the letter is not guaranteed to be delivered to the recipient if it is sent via certfied mail. Anyone who answers the door at the address can sign for the letter if it is not sent via restricted mail, which can only be signed by the recipient or I believe anyone who can produce legal papers of guardianship of said recipient. This method of mailing is also more expensive by several dollars (about 5, I think give or take).

Can a certified letter be used in court as evidence?

It depends on what it is being used as evidence of. The text contained in the letter would probably be hearsay, so it could not be introduced as evidence of anything contained in the letter. However, certified letters are often used to show that a party had notice of something. A copy of the certified letter could be admissible to show that the person received notice.

How do you write a certified letter?

You write your letter as usual, then mail it Certified, at a US Post Office. Be certain, though, as you would for any business or legal matter, that your letter contains the name and address of both yourself and recipient, and is dated. You do not mark the letter itself "Certified," although you may note in the body text that you are mailing the letter Certified. Seal and address your letter as usual. At the Post Office, obtain and fill out a Certified Mail form. You likely also want to use a Return Receipt form. Your cost at the window will be the postage cost of sending your letter (which must be sent either First-Class Mail or Priority Mail), plus the Certified Mail fee of $2.65, plus a Return Receipt fee, if you desire this service, of $0.85 for email confirmation or $2.15 for confirmation by mail. These are the costs in effect at this time, June of 2007.
