Customer Question
I am being followed...

I am being followed by multiple cars daily even thou my domestic violence case was dismissed months ago. Can you tell me if this is normal or has it happened before?

Lawyer's Assistant: In what state did this occur?

Texas

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

Yes, but no one knows or will tell me why this is happening to me.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I am still under a protective order that was assigned before the case was started.

I am sorry to hear that you are having this experience.

If a domestic violence case has been dismissed, (and a case can be either criminal or civil) then that means the court no longer has jurisdiction over it.

However if the party that initiated the case (private party, prosecutor etc) is looking to find new evidence, it is possible that they have retained a private investigator but they tend to be discreet and do not send multiple vehicles for observation of an individual.

If there is a protective order that typically precludes contact between 2 parties (and may have other restrictions) but generally does not result in people following either party.

Further questions? Please post here to continue the chat.

The person has no money to hire a private investigator. Can any other party hire people to follow me because that did not like the trail outcome? How can I stop it? Go to the judge?

Anyone can hire a private investigator; there are no restrictions on hiring a private investigator.

One can seek court intervention but that would unfortunately require knowing the identity of the people that would be following the applicant.

This discusses the penal code violation of stalking:

So a complaint can be filed with the local law enforcement.
