My ex-partner would treat me badly, cheat on me. I would try to end the relationship but would always be manipulated into continuing the relationship. They would emotionally get me to ignore what had happened.
They knew this led me to suffer extreme depression and to self harm. However they continued to treat me the same way knowing how it impacted me emotionally but wouldn't allow me to leave the relationship. When i finally ended the relationship and kept to my word, they continued to harass me and lead me on for 9 months. Whilst making up lies about me, telling friends and family. As well as blaming me for their own actions and putting me down.
It is far more complicated than this but hopefully this gives you enough of an understanding.
The only area where the police will act domestically is if violence is involved then? As well as harassment and slander? Do you have any source or suggestions as to where i can look in more detail about my particular circumstances.
If emotional, mental and verbal abuse and mistreatment, knowingly leads to an individual over a long period of time to self harm and attempt suicide. In my opinion there should be legislation and a way to prevent this. I'm trying to see if there's any criminal act or way of prevention.
As stated there was harassment after the relationship for 9 months. But I'm just trying understand my current legal situation better along with possible options and if this is relevant in criminal law.
Thank you for your responses.
