I not sure how to start.
My sister met her new partner years after the breakup of his marriage. But My sister had her car keyed by her partner’s ex-wife.
lucky for my sister, a neighbour had it on CCTV.
when the police were called and shown the video, they visited the ex-wife and she admitted it and promised to pay to put it right.
The police suggested the best way to handle this would be restorative justice, the ex-wife agreed to pay but with the proviso if she doesn’t do what she promises she can be arrested for the crime.
Her partner Ex-wife works as a school teacher or works in a teaching capacity in a school.
not want to prolong or cause any problems for the ex-wife she agreed to go along with the police.
my sister spent time going getting quotes from 3 companies near to her because she has two children to look after so she need to stay close to her home.
she sent her a letter sent with the three quotes giving he 14 days to choose and an extra 7 days to sort out payment with whoever she picked out of the three.
After 21 days she had heard nothing of the ex-wife.
my sister sent her another letter giving her another 14 days to sort things otherwise she will have no other choice but to involve the police.
My sister got a letter back to day saying (ex-wife) never received the first letter and she admitted she had damaged the car and said she would pay but it happened because of having to deal with her ex- husband’s and to put thing right, she offered my sister five pounds a month.
A This would take 66years to pay off approx. £4,000 damage
B The ex-wife is in full time employment.
What can my sister do?
I have suggested that she get the police back involved and press charges for the damage to her car.
