Hi, thank you for your message. If you are being accused of slavery and they are taking legal action I would strongly recommend that you find a solicitor in your area to represent you. You can find a solicitor through the law society using this function: https://solicitors.lawsociety.org.uk/ (you will be able to search by area of expertise and location). You may qualify for legal aid if you have low income and want to take the case to court. You can check if you can get legal aid here: https://www.gov.uk/check-legal-aid. You might be able to find a pro bono lawyer by attending a LawWorks Clinic.

Unless if was an order by the court you are not likely to be held liable. I would advise that you keep any evidence to support your case of no longer helping them.

Hi, thank you for your message. As there is no written agreement between you it is not likely that her claim will stand. Moreover, if she is considered a friend she will need very strong evidence to prove that there was an intention to create legal relations (a binding contract). It appears to me that she is merely making threats of legal action. If you feel harassed you will need to contact the police who will investigate the matter and then the courts may imposed a retraining order against her to prevent her from contacting you further. You can contact your local police here: www.police.uk
