It appears to me that I have no counter measure in this situation. As for slander and even defamation of character actions that she has made over the past year, according to the attorney that has represented me in the judgment and garnishment matter has made it clear that for me to prove the actions of slander and defamation of character I would stand very little success in the matter. I would be wasting money and time.
The fact that this person and I have an issue that has been in front of a judge here in Maryland and settlement of garnishment has been reached to the point that it is causing me very serious financial pain and suffering. I would think that my family and friends she has made contact with and continues to make contact with could somehow be relieved of her games surprises me. Sorry, this is not my family's matter. It is very frustrating that this can happen like this.
I reached an agreement that under the terms of current Federal guidelines of garnishment I have a structured settlement of $256.67 per week payable to her attorney at 10% interest. All monies that were due her since the judgment was entered this past January have been paid as well as weekly payments as outlined above have been made payable to her attorney.
I have provided all the proof of our earlier promissory agreement between she and I when I left the relationship of more than 3 years of how I would pay the loan back to her. In several of her emails to me she made it clear that she did not make it a loan, however she did and just a few weeks after she made this "loan" the relationship got so bad it was the only option I had was to end the relationship and move on. Its a long story botXXXXX XXXXXne I considered it a loan and did all I could in very hard economic times to assure her she would receive re-payment. None of that mattered she has to date not left the relationship go and goes to and has gone to great effort to follow and find me. Can't call it stocking in the normal sense of the phrase but surely its now looking like such. She knows that I just moves not 2 weeks ago and based on feed back from my daughter in-law has the address. All I can do at this point is should I see here in or around the house call the police file a report of stalking and see what happens.
Very frustrating. A very sick person. Sorry as it appears I am stuck with no means of stress relief form all this until the balance is paid in full.
Thanks for your time.
