Hi, welcome to Just Answer. I will help you with your question.
Is she doing this deliberately to cause you harassment?
Okay - have you complained to the police specifically about harassment?
And they do nothing useful still?
no just tell me to stay clear of her which is what i do
Well, that's not helpful. Harassment is a criminal offence now, and the police should arrest and charge her if they have sufficient evidence to do that.
Do they have evidence or is it simply one word against the other?
some evidence but not enough
or so they say
Okay. The standard in criminal issues is beyond all reasonable doubt, as you know. But, you could instead take action in the civil courts, where the standard is "on balance of probabilities".
It's easier in the civil courts - so you could seek an injunction to stop her harassing you.
Then if she continues, she would be in contempt of court and could go to prison for that.
where do i start
You would need to issue an N1 Claim Form.
You get this from the local county court.
would i get one from a soliciter
You ask for an injunction in that, and set out the details of why in the form. The Court staff would assist you in completing the forms.
They can provide one for you - yes.
You can get Court forms online at this address: http://www.justice.gov.uk/courts/procedure-rules/civil/forms
It's best to get a solicitor to do all this for you if you can though.
thank you I'll down load one and fill it out with my husband
