What was actually said please/
we weer having quite an amicable visit , i had not had much conversation with my mum as i was just drawing comfort from seeing her , the previous evening my daughter and i had picked up my late husbands ashes , and to be fair my younger sister had just travelled over 3000 miles , not only to support me , but also to visit with mum . After about 30 minutes or so , my daughter got to her feet approached my nephew Matthew and his girlfriend Zoe and made a shepherding movement with her arms and said "come on guys , lets go outside and leave my mum and Wendy on their own with Nanna for a while" Matthew folded his arms and planted his feet squarely on the floor, and said "that is never going to happen , my mum has left instructions to this as she , meaning me, always upsets Nanna when she speaks with her "
just had a thought would it help if i sent you you a copy of the first letter i sent as it gives a wider picture as to what is happening
Its good and bad news.
The good news is that you could sue for slander.
The bad news is that it is very costly and long process
You need around £15,000 to spend and you wont get legal aid.
You need to issue proceedings in the High Court and use a specialist Solicitor and Barrister. This is because of the court rules.
This will be a jury trial
If you win then you could claim the costs back from the other side
If you lose you are responsible for their costs. So your overall expose is £30,000
The proceedings are very specialist and are not guaranteed.
A Solicitor letter from a local high street one may do the trick
But sadly not many people do issue proceedings because it is so complex and expensive
I am sorry if this is not the answer you want and it is certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest
