Hello my name is Alex and I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply as this is not an ‘on demand’ live service, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return. There is no need to wait here, you will get an email when I reply.
Did she give a formal statement please?
I am unsure if she's given them a formal statement, perhaps not ...
If she has not then there is no complaint and you have nothing to worry about
If she has given a statement but will not support the prosecution then whilst it wont end so quick - it should end.
i am checking it with her just now
But by the sounds of it there appears to be no evidence in any event
As such you do not need to worry
I know, there is and will never be any evidence as this did not happen
now, the copper that rung me said she could arrest me? I did mock to be honest, i said if the day has come when anyone could be arrested without any evidence, then I'll fly away from the UK for good ...
Therefore you don't need to worry
there is not I meant
He can arrest you because there has been an allegation
But there is no evidence.
So nothing will happen
so the fact they wish to speak to me is just a formality?
Even if arrested you can deny everything
I think so yes
should I engage in talks with them?
Can I clarify anything for you?
Yes I would, otherwise it makes matters worse
Just deny everything and ask for evidence
Can I clarify anything else?
all good, I reckon this answers it all ... there is no evidence, I may have said something on skype but this happened a while back
the fact she is dropping the charges should also count in my favor yes?
also, what I said had to do with wither herself or new b'friend hurting my son ...
Ok - Im not sure that adds anything
as I know through friends she was seeking someone desperately to look after our 3 year old so she could go out
Ok - again that does not add anything
ok from the start
we had a skype chat a few weeks ago
in that conversation I mentioned that if either herself or her new guy ever hurts my kid, then everyone involved would be in serious trouble
I know she's going to clubs & parties, and this is fine, but I do not condone she leaves him behind with friends that i dont know anything about myself
when I am in the UK I always look after him, no exceptions, all weekends and weekdays, and got plenty of proof on this
so it blows my mind that she's saying I pose a risk to her life
ok sorry, I got her on skype again, she's given the cops a formal statement
she did speak to someone about this
Ok - well if he does not wish to attend Court nothing will really happen
yeah still, I do not wish to have the coppers on my back
I barely spend anytime in the UK these days, my work is primarily undertaken in Angola/Western Africa
Well you can't avoid that. Your wife should not have made the complaint in the first place
If she did, then you should expect to have it investigated. You can't do anything about that
especially cos she has no evidence of life threating ...
got it, ok, I reckon this is all for now
many thanks Alex!
All the best with this
