Hi.

Thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I will try to help with this.

What type of thing did you say?

Is she one for making vexatious allegations? Has she done it before?

Thanks.

Please don't waste your time worrying about this. That letter is just an act of remonstration with her.

Its a one off letter so not enough for harassment. It doesn't amount to a communication offence.

Its very easy to make threats to take legal action and a lot harder to do it especially when you cannot for free. A solicitor will tell her she has no complaint and then she will probably have another tantrum and make some complaint about him too!

Some people just like the attention of being a victim.

That letter gives rise to no complaint. Please don't worry.

Can I clarify anything for you?

Try not to avoid any contact with her in future. We all have family rows. We don't all get the police and solicitors involved in them.

You will find a very interesting article upon people like her here

and you don't want anything to do with it.

its people like that who 'remember' that they have been abused 40 years ago. Surround yourself with sensible people.
