legally you have several options to stop harassment,

one is to contact the police and press charges against them

WALLSTREETLAW :

second is go directly to the family court and ask for a full order of protection or limited order of protection against the family member,

WALLSTREETLAW :

You can ask for a civil harassment restraining order if you are being harassed, stalked, abused, or threatened by someone you are not as close to as is required under domestic violence cases, like a roommate, a neighbor, or more distant family members like cousins, aunts or uncles, or nieces or nephews.
