Thank you. Then there is no legal basis for a restraining order from in that sense.

However, you can contact the police department and file telephone harassment charges.

You can also contact your phone company and file a complaint about the calls/texts coming from her number.

No expert can promise you an answer that is favorable to your circumstances. But I will do my very best to explain the legal principles that are related to the facts you’ve described so that you can better understand the “why” of things.
