LEGAL QUESTIONS & ATTORNEY DWYER'S ANSWERS:
Legal question: My ex told me I didn't return our son's watch, but I thought I had. She then sent me the GPS!! I had no idea. Is it harassment?
ATTORNEY TRICIA DWYER'S ANSWER: I do not know the full facts, but, as a broad and general principle, harassment means unwanted contact, and so one needs to communicate that clearly and succinctly to the other person, and best to do so in writing, get 'straight to the point' and then go about one's business. However, harassment may include prior (past) conduct.
LEGAL QUESTION: I have 50 50 custody and live in a small town. My ex says he's having
my house watched all the time. He said he's watching our kids, but he's also watching me & doesn't believe I live where I say I do which is none of his business. I feel fear, among other things.
ATTORNEY TRICIA DWYER'S ANSWER: I suggest you stop in at the appropriate police station and make a report. If I were in your situation I'd aim to full resolution, and asap, because, as you stated, right now you lack the most basic and fundamental sense of safety, security and privacy. Protective Order, Restraining Order, Order for Protection (OFP), and Harassment Order (HRO) are possibilities.
Legal question: I filed for an Harassment Order - at court agreed to mediate & written agreement was made to keep away from each other. She's still contacting me!
Attorney Tricia Dwyer's answer: Generally, unlawful harassment includes unwanted contact, for instance, Adult A emails Adult B, 'Do NOT contact me in any way, shape or form, and NOT directly or indirectly in any way either.' Adult B attempts direct or indirect contact: This is grounds for filing an harassment petition with the courts. Also fyi: Remember we have tools like Call Blocking & email blocking, and if someone is doing something like hiding in your bushes, even cheap smart fones take good pics' & some make vids'. VERY IMPORTANT RULE: You yourself do NOT have any direct or indirect contact with the offensive person -- ZERO !!
LEGAL QUESTION: I got an harassment order. The respondent is my husband and he hasn't lived in our home for 2 years. I set an appt. with the sheriff for me to be present and husband take the few things he'd left behind, like old clothes and some junk in the garage. I didn't get home on time-I tried to phone the cell no. of officer but no answer. I have live video. Husband took valuable things, all sorts of things. ATTORNEY TRICIA DWYER'S ANSWER: As to the sheriff and the entry that was made, fuller details would need to be known. Generally, when a restraining order is hand served by the sheriff (or other law enf'), the hand-service may happen at the respondent's residence and the petitioner is either present also, or informed of what's unfolding; when that's the case, depending on all circumstances, the respondent may be given a few minutes to collect personal belongings, toothbrush, clothes. In many other cases the respondent will make an appointment via the sheriff's office, or city police, and the petitioner is a part of setting the appt. Law enforcement has to set priorities, and so the appt. may well not take place at the exact appt.'d time, and it may have to be cut short. Regarding your belongings being taken, I suggest you tally up a rough total of the dollar amount of items that were stolen/wrongfully taken. Also, if items of sentimental value were taken, such as your grandparents pics', etc., list those. I can't tell you what to do, of course, but when a person asks me for help with this sort of matter, I want to have an idea of the dollar value of what was taken, plus what the items sentimental value are, because I want to help my client in a cost effective manner.
