    Question "file with" or "file to"

    Hallo,

    I'm trying to write an official letter to an American company, where I'd like to say that I will file a complaint but I'm not sure which is the correct expression:

    "I will file a complaint with The Committee On Consumer Protection"
    or
    "I will file a complaint to The Committee On Consumer Protection"

    Will you clarify this for me, please?

    You file it with.

    You could also "lodge a complaint with".

    Or... You could just say you were "going to complain to".
