Thank you for choosing Just Answer. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will assist you today.
If local law enforcement will not take action then you should contact the prosecutor's office directly and provide the evidence you have of the harassment. The actions may be consistent with criminal stalking. You can also file a civil suit for monetary damages. Collection of these damages could involve garnishment of account, and wages. It can also include attachment of property. I am assuming this is what you will be contacting a lawyer for
At a minimum what you need to take to the lawyer is all evidence of activity in violation of the injunctions. If you 3 years worth then you bring 3 years worth. Civil damages will be based in part on how much you had to endure. Videos are excellent. If you witnesses to the actions you should provide names and identification to the attorney. Get a record of all calls (dates/times) to the police (Sheriffs) whether action was taken or not. If you have police/sheriffs reports take those to the attorney as well. You should also be keeping a daily log of when the harassing conduct is occurring.
