Hi

My ex solicitor wrote a while back to my solicitor that I made numerous phone calls, text and email. This was last year and January I accept. They also said, she made a catalogue of police reports.

However I was never contacted by police or under any sort of investigation.

1. What does it mean when someone reports you to police? Surely if a criminal act was conducted i should have been investigated. Why haven't they done this yet all this months?

2. The fact that she merely reporting me to police from the past, does it count as a bad behaviour on my part?

3. How can I prove to court that I was never investigated? I called 101 to ask for written confirmation today that I am not under investigation but was told if they wanted to be in with touch me they would have done by now. Should I just do a crb check on myself to prove thàt I am not under investigation or convinced?

Thanks

Well if she is going to claim any sort of bad behaviour, it would be down to her to prove on the balance of probabilities (more likely than not) that it occurred. I take it that her reporting you to the police was about your menacing calls, emails and messages.

The fact that you were not investigated by the police probably makes little difference as she probably has transcripts of emails/texts as evidence anyway.

Obviously, I don't know what you have said in these messages, but I would think it's unlikely they would count as bad behaviour in financial settlement proceedings. Bad behaviour has to be REALLY bad.

I haven't said anything bad - this was last year regardless!
Surely she can't use that now- she should have obtained non mol order if it was bad then! Can't keep going on about it!

Thanks

Don't worry about it.

She probably contacted the Police and claimed that you were harassing her with all your contact . They will have offered her some advice as to what the definition of harassment is. Log written off as no further action required.

The fact they didn't even contact you suggests that it wasn't deemed necessary to even discus it with you.

That's if she is even telling the truth about contacting them of course!

I had similar. In her form E my STBX stated I had committed bank fraud and led to her calling the Police which then lead to supposed allegations of Domestic Violence.

I was very angry and posted at the time. I assumed as I was the one having allegations made about me that I could find out what they were but data protection meant it was my stbx's private detail and not mine, so they could tell me nothing.

The best I could do was to fill in an application to find out if there were any detail on file about me (subject access request where you pay £10) and they wrote back to advise that the police were called regarding me on the said date. But they could not put more.

I did also speak to them and they confirmed that with me not having heard anything there would have been no investigation and therefore nothing on my file.

So I think WYSPECIAL is right, nothing to worry about, although understand your concerns.

I used to work in a Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub and dealt with a lot of similar situations.

What a lot of people do is ask police to log a complaint but not do anything about it. In cases like this it, unless one party wants to press charges the police would not investigate.

Often it is logged so they can refer back to it if they need to at some point in the future.

Hope that helps a bit

What I don't understand. Why would someone go to police and say something bad happened and not wanting to investigate?

If I am going to police surely I want the other person arrested? I was told that she reported me to the police last August (only came to my knowledge as part of her cross application to my injunction) even we seperated last July, the she reported me about DV. They gave her an option to arrest me by what she says. Nothing was done about it.

I have no expereince dealing with police but surely getting something logged seems like a waste of resource if nothing was being done about it. How would the police even know whether the person logging is telling the truth or not if it never investigated?
