This answer was rated:

My ex boyfriend hit me kicked me 18 months ago he was arrested but not charged as I said I didn't want to press charges - can I press charges now?
hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
I am sorry but its bad news. If its common assault there is only 6 months from the date of incident to charge. After this you are out of time.
Even if you got over that you didnt want to press charges and you cant really go back and change your mind now.
I am sorry if this is not the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
