Me and friend got into while back, I sent gift card and couple apologized letters. Then he told me don’t send me anything else, don’t contact me ever again or I’ll file harassment order, been few days now that I haven’t made contact. What’s the time frame on filing order?

Thank you and please allow me a moment

Ask Your Own Legal Question

Thank you for the reply. If someone were to file it, they would need to do so if there were in fear or harm or if the party was harassing them and refused to cease. If you had an argument and went back and forth and tried to apologize and they told you to not contact them and you stopped, that would be the end of it. If they wanted to try and file for the order, they would need to show you continued over their demand and this now rises to harassment.

I just wanted to follow up and see if you had any other questions or needed me to clarify something. I am here to help, so please let me know. Thanks!

After he told me to stop contacting him, like I have now for few days. Can he file some sort of protection order or stalking order still? Or is harassment order same as protection/stalking order?
I think he would have a hard time. There would be no real basis for harassment since this has ceased and I can’t see any harm or fear unless threats were made

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.
