I live in Turkey with my Current partner of 3 years. My ex-husband and I brought a villa and my mother-in-law moved in and became a resident. After the horrendous divorce, they villa was signed over to her and my ex-husband. My partner has a business in the same Village a cafe and a Estate Agency.. My ex-mother-in-law has for the past 3 years intimidated me, embarrasses me in restaurants, Shouts I owe her money and not to trust me while out with friends, approaches me if she turns up at the same venue, tells local, holiday makers,restaurant owners in fact anyone willing to listen to her that I lie. She has been to the local Tax office and reported me for earning money and sending it back to UK, I was investigated and found not quilt, she then went to the passport police and reported me working!! Once again the public pros acuter threw this out once all investigations were complete. It's making me ill and it's warn me down, I am due to pick up my child from England to return to Turkey for her annual summer Holiday, this is when it just gets worse.. She discusses me to others in front of her, she just constantly upsets me and my daughter.. However not stooping to her level, this is my daughter grand-mother so Charlie has a right to see her and stay with her.. But really when will this all end and why do I have to constantly put up with this treatment.. What can be done please, can you help me or advice me considering I am in other country??? your Julia

Hi, if you are living in Turkey, I am afraid that you will have to seek redress through the Turkish Courts as opposed to the UK Courts as the UK Courts would have no jurisdiction in Turkey.
Hello No disrespect I understand that, just needed to understand if anything could be done under Turkish Law.
Unfortunately that is not a question that could be answered by me or my colleagues as we are not familiar with Turkish law and the JA Site does not have a Turkish Law category.
