Hi.

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

You can engage a solicitor. You could get a solicitor to write to her for about £100 plus VAT or thereabouts. That might succeed.

In truth, if its just verbal abuse then you do not have a claim against her for compensation I'm afraid.

You could possibly consider an injunction order to prevent her having contact with you although there is expense in that but it can be done.

The police will just give them a harassment warning though which might well be enough to address your concerns.

Can I clarify anything for you?

Jo
