Thank you for your information.
1) You do not qualify for the civil restraining order
of New York as it requires a showing of domestic violence
, meaning criminal action by a family member or boyfriend. She does not qualify under the definition.
2) However you are not without recourse. In New York harassment is a crime. When you press charges and she is convicted you will be able to get a criminal no-contact order in place. This is the same as a civil restraining order but is acquired in criminal court after the person is convicted of her charges.
Below are the statutes for harassment for your review:
§ 240.25 Harassment in the first degree.
A person is guilty of harassment in the first degree when he or she
intentionally and repeatedly harasses another person by following such
person in or about a public place or places or by engaging in a course
of conduct or by repeatedly committing acts which places such person in
reasonable fear of physical injury. This section shall not apply to
activities regulated by the national labor relations act, as amended,
the railway labor act, as amended, or the federal employment labor
management act, as amended.
Harassment in the first degree is a class B misdemeanor.
As she is in New York, that state would have jurisdiction in protecting your rights.
