So the court returned a verdict of not guilty?
You said you made a report to the police? Are you asking about that?
I won't know anything about the family matter. I could refer it to somebody who will.
Yes, you could. I wouldn't suggest it. The findings from the other courts so far have been a fairly resounding rejection of these allegations I'm afraid and she will rely on those findings. There is a different standard of proof at the civil court from the criminal court but the family court shares a fairly low standard of proof.
Also, unless there was some substantial injury that has a lifelong consequence it is not usually worth suing in the UK. The benefit of a claim being under £1k is that costs are not such a huge issue though.
To be wholly honest, even if you succeeded, it would not stop the contact that is taking place at this stage.
Sorry if that is bad news.
Can I clarify anything for you?
No problem and all the best.
