    Answered . I don't think you would meet the "intimate relationship" standard to get an order of protection from family court. Without more, it might be difficult to get a criminal court OP. in any event, file a police report.

    Answered . If there is a pending proceeding, file for a restraining order prohibiting these communications. Otherwise, these could be a basis for an order of protection in family court.

    However, there is nothing one can file in a court to make a person grow up.

    Good luck.
