Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello my name is Jamie and I will help you. I am just reviewing your question. This is an email service so there may be delays when responding.
Can you please explain your situation a little more?
The answer is yes. Civil proceedings can be issued pending a criminal investigation. You are better waiting until the criminal investigation is complete as if the person is convicted, a Civil claim is easier.
But yes, you can bring civil notwithstanding criminal investigation.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today, please?
If not, I would appreciate a 5-star rating for my answer, by clicking the button at the top of the screen. I am not paid for my time unless you rate. If you need anything further I am available for a follow up at no extra cost.
You can’t stop them. Whether or not they will be successful is another matter.
Does that clarify?
