I have a civil restraining order against my neighbor yet she continues to harass me by calling the police and lying, saying things like I'm walking in front of her house with a large metal stick. I have seen the Sheriff three times since the order was issued.... what can I do?

Lawyer's Assistant: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

the Sheriff does come but they don't take it seriously. The order states not to contact, annoy or harass me in any way

That would be frustrating to say the least;

so the police won't generally get involved unless they have proof of a violation-and if the party is alleging certain facts occured that justified calling the police, then the police can't arrest based on that because it could have a chilling effect on reporting issues to law enforcement (this is why malicious prosecution is so hard to win).

There is a remedy though-that would be to motion the judge, to bring a contempt citation for violation of the protective order. When a protective order is violated, it may be either criminal or civil (depending on the underlying order) and the court can hold a party in contempt. That can include daily fines for violations, the award of legal fees, even jail time if a party makes a knowing and willful violation of a court order.

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.
