Hello friend. My name is XXXXX XXXXX welcome to JustAnswer. Please note: (1) this is general information only, not legal advice, and, (2) there may be a slight
delay between your follow ups and my replies.
I am very sorry for your situation. What your daughter may wish to do is to file a Protection from Stalking Order. This is essentially a version of a restraining order that orders the party to cease and desist
or else they can be held civilly on contempt and criminally charged.
According to K.S.A. § 60-31a02
: "Stalking is harassment that puts you in reasonable fear for your safety. Harassment means repeated behaviors or actions that seriously frighten or annoy you and would cause a reasonable person to suffer substantial emotional distress. Also, there must not be any legitimate (valid) reason for these actions or behaviors."
The Judge will order him to stay away and place restrictions as they deem necessary (K.S.A. § 60-31a06(a)
), including but not limited to telephone, email, or other contact - by him or his agents.
Information on how to file and forms are available for free here
Often, a letter threatening
to file such a complaint
will have the party cease and desist, to avoid being dragged into Court
. Let me know if you need a copy of such a letter. Or, she may simply file the request NOW, without writing such a letter - it is up to her.
The Courts generally like to err on the side of caution and grant more restraining orders than they refuse... actually, the vast majority of them are granted.
Good luck to her.
