Hi. How can I help with this?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
jo i was served a non molestation order yesterday, i was not issued a statement with the order, i have no idea what it is i have been accused of, i can tell you that ithere as never been any complaints of physical or verbal abuse, so i dont understand how this as been issued
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
i fully intend to fight this order and have it discharged, the last time i see the person in question was on the 16th of august, i only got back from a trip to africa the day before the order was served,
after our last conversation which took through a window, she called the police, i was summonds to the police station to answer alligations which where made against me, all aligation was later to be unfounded, she lied in her complaint, which i could a did prove her to lied, i know feel she as presented the court with the same lies, to get this order
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

Well, yes of course she is. There is not much genuine abuse in the UK.

What do you want to achieve?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
i wish to defend myself against this, what is the next step
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

I'm not sure what you mean?

You attend police interview and offer your defence.

If you are charged you raise your defence in court.

Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

If you can ask a more specific question then I could probably offer more.
