my neighbours have given me since my husband died 8 yrs

Resolved Question:

my neighbours have given me hell since my husband died 8 yrs ago
they call the police because I have not opened my blinds,
the police call age concern, age concern call me and I say why don't they just knock on my door.
One man says I'm senile, and cannot look after myself
I have no witnesses, so don't know what to do,
but every week its another gossip,
I was supposed to be drunk morning till night I offered a blood test
but this is getting beyond a joke

Alex Watts : Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Alex Watts : Have you reported any of this to the police as harassment please?
Customer:

the police know about this but I have not actually told them mystory

Alex Watts : Ok, I would do that. They can warn your neighbours not to harass you. If they continue to do so and it amounts to harassment the police can prosecute them and seek an injunction,
Alex Watts : This process can take time but it is a free option.
Alex Watts : The other option is to obtain a civil injunction preventing them from harassing you.
Alex Watts : You would need to complete form n1
Alex Watts : http://hmctsformfinder.justice.gov.uk/courtfinder/forms/n001-eng.pdf
Alex Watts : And n16a
Alex Watts : http://hmctsformfinder.justice.gov.uk/courtfinder/forms/n016a-eng.pdf
Alex Watts : The court will send a copy to the other side and list for a short interim hearing.
Alex Watts : The court will at this point set the matter down for a final hearing if contested, give directions and decide whether to make an interim order.
Alex Watts : The court will need to decide whether this conduct is harassment and is it just to make an interim order.
Alex Watts : You may possibly get legal aid or fee remission from court fees depending on your circumstances
Alex Watts : But I would suggest a lawyer to deal with the county court matter.
Alex Watts : But inform the police and start to keep a diary of all the events that go on.
Alex Watts : Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Customer:

I'm so thankful to you, I did not think I could do anything because I have no witness thank you so much
