Hi, welcome to JustAnswer. My name is*****’m a barrister with 12 years of experience and I am happy to help with your question today.
What would you like to know about this?
Thank you. Yes it is possible. They wouldn't tell you necessarily whether he had been invited in for an interview. It wouldn't be normal for them to do that. They should tell you at some point that no further action has been taken but obviously not before he has been told. I don't know whether he does crime but if he is a barrister then he is probably being accurate
Obviously we don't have prosecution on demand in the UK so the fact that you have made a complaint does not guarantee a prosecution.
The only thing is that it would not be described as charges been dropped as charges never existed. It would just be described as no further action
I'm not sure what further legal action you were thinking of? I practice crime so I don't know anything about family law. You could consider a non-molestation order although I think the alleged assault has to be recent. If the police have taken no further action though then evidentially it doesn't sound very strong
There is no way they would've got access to his medical notes. They need lots of permissions to do that which they will not have. They would not even think of seeking them for what ultimately does amount to a fairly low-level assault.
You could take out a private prosecution but I wouldn't advise it. It is very expensive and since the police seem to have refused charge almost certainly it would be taken over and dropped
The fact of no charges do not mean that you were lying though although obviously some women do lie. It just means that they couldn't prove it
They will tell you in the end.
They can but they won't do that in absence. If he is contesting it then it might well be removed but not without your knowledge
Up to 100,000. You have to appoint a disclosure officer which in this case will be massive. He will probably make an application for dismissal and it will almost certainly succeed
You could be. Non-molestation orders don't prevent attacks. All they do is create additional conditions. In my experience they aren't worth the paper they're written on I don't know why people bother with them. If there is an incident that can be reported. If there is not there is no need to report anything.
Good to talk to you.
All the best.
