Hi,

I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm sorry to hear about your situation.

If your ex has committed domestic violence against you, you can get a restraining order that will require him to leave the premises. The order is effective from the moment it is served on him by a police officer. You would then be responsible for 100% of the rent until the end of the lease.

Please rate my answer positively to ensure I get credit for the time I spend helping. If you are on a mobile device, you may need to scroll to the right. Thank you.

I reported him to police and they can only get him for harrasment..

If his behavior rises to the level of stalking, that is also a grounds for a restraining order. Essentially, you have to show the judge that you're in reasonable fear for your own safety. He shouldn't be able to get a restraining order when he's the one harassing you.

Usually what happens when a couple sharing a lease breaks up is, the two of you would continue living there until one finds another place or the lease is up.

I'm sorry to hear that. Following you to work to intimidate you could be grounds for a restraining order. That's a type of stalking.
