Customer Question

My ex husband continues to stalk me. When I am out of the home, he breaks in and damages the furniture, cabinets, floors, etc. The last time he broke in he poured water in the junction box for the camera's. The police said he was trying to burn the house down. My fear is one day he will break in when I am home. What is my legal rights should I be home when he breaks in? If he will try to burn the house down, he will surely try to kill me. What are my rights to protect myself?
