Customer Question
My 80 year old...

My 80 year old sister and her husband are getting threatening letters from their son (58) and they are nervous right now. I am 68, and my name has been included. What recourse do we have to keep this maniac away from us? Thank you

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

Oregon

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

Nothing in the courts...a police report when we had to get him out of their house.

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

Oh my....there is a divorce, two small children. thank you,

You can file a restraining order. You can have a lawyer send a no contact letter. You can ask the police to visit this person and warn him to stay away. You can also sue. 4 options to choose from. Kindly let me know if clear and acceptable.
