Yes, is this the same as a restraining order?
I'm afraid that by issuing the restraining order she will see it as a sign that I am still thinking about her and feed off of that notion and possibly escalate the situation. She obtained my home phone number through 411 and we have since changed the number. So far the stalking and harassment has been limited to phone calls and social media. She is also using my last name. She is obviously mentally unstable and I just need to know if there are other legal options besides a restraining order. Is she breaking some law by misrepresenting herself as my "wife"? I'm married, but of course, not to the stalker.
