Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location. Has anything been filed or reported?

California besides him calling i have had bad roomate issue and captian kirk or corporale kirk has stated that i am a credable person that he is glad i have cleaned up this house and i left msg cant help but think when roomate is lying to try to incarcerate me he has an agenda is credability is no good and i am having to pack everything in my room police told him to show respect but i am ready to male that report i have document damage friend heard him over the phone first day of hell he started and thought he was gonna harm me i now think he might and i am not going to lower myself he wants me to get angry but i am not comfortable with him and children and do not want my dogs to be abused like they did to that puppy or like i witness the dad do to his son

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

Ok, have you considered getting a domestic violence restraining order against this individual?

I have the paperwork but I called police first and has not physically touch me but yelling and trying to get reaction from me 2 inches from me
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
sorry I meant he called police first

I see what you mean. You can get a restraining order even if the individual has not actually touched you. If there is the threat of harassment, then a judge will grant a restraining order. You can put in your request all of these horrible things that he has done and it is likely that a judge, who is also a lawyer like me, would easily be able to grant your request. Many times, they'll grant a temporary restraining order and then grant a permanent one after a hearing with both of the parties.

ok i just dont want to abuse the system i am very credable but do not have a police report dont believe cop took report when he called and lied so I should fill out that restraining order and waiver the fee go to court house with 3 copies and will they grant it tmr and get him off property cause I have to go outside this room to use my printer and he is consistant on trying to get a reaction I am disable have diabetis kidney failure stress does not help diabetis

I see what you mean. I don't have any reason to believe this is an abuse of the system at all. Even if you don't have a police report (many people don't), you should still file for a restraining order. If they grant it, you can have the Sheriff's office remove him from the property immediately. If you are disabled, this can only help your case. Did you have any other questions for me?

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.
