I am being continually harassed by my ex husband since 1990.

Customer Question
He also harasses my family...
I am being continually harassed by my ex husband since 1990. He also harasses my family and co workers as well as co workers of my brothers and sisters. He lives in California. I left him and we were divorced on 1993. I moved to Canada where the harassment started. The police were involved which led to a Canada wide warrant for his arrest but the law could do no more than that. I now live in Switzerland. The police and Interpol were involved 5 years ago because of a threat of murder towards my husband that was left on an answering machine which led to a visit to him by the police in California. The police stated that they would only do this once for me as I'm in Switzerland. The activity stopped for a year but it has now continued terribly. Cyber mail, telephone messages, letters by post to me and to my extended family and their coworkers. What can I do to stop this?

I am so sorry to read about your difficulties.

You need to contact the District Attorney's Office in California in the County in California where he resides and file complaint. Click here for the contact information:

You should also contact the Police again eventhough they say that they can only help you once.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
