When will u get back to me with a answer please
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I am going to request a refund if I don't get a reply
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.
The reason you are experiencing delay is that you keep posting before I have responded which pushes the question to the back of my list.
But I can request a refund if you would like?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Can u give me a answer to my question plz
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.
Yes, I can.
But I'm not sure what you wanted to know? I've read your post above but it doesn't contain a specific question?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
What will be the outcome with cps
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.
Have you done this before in other rows?
If so, how often and how many times?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Once
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Since my retract statement his solicitor has asked the cps if they will be proceeding the case how long will it take for there response as my partner is still on remand
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.
How long ago ?
What did you allege then and against whom?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
How long does it take for cps to respond
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.
It depends on the circumstances.
Sometimes they are given a week to review. I dont think that will apply here though because they have not been directed to do so by a Court.
Probably they will just declare at the next scheduled hearing.
However, if you have done this before then the chances are fairly high they would summons you. That is their policy at the moment. Summonses do have limitations but they are favoured by CPS at the moment.
The bigger issue anyway is whether they will take action against you as you do seem to accept making a false statement and that is perverting the course of justice i'm afraid.
Can I clarify anything for you?
