  1. First and foremost, you should be documenting everything she does. You should have a diary with sewn pages, not a ringed binder, in which you briefly note what she does, the date, and the time. You should be printing and saving all of her text messages, and emails and anything else which she sends you that can be documented. You should consult with an attorney as soon as possible to get the legal advice and guidance you need to make sure you act with wisdom and EFFECTIVENESS. Do not warn the other woman or her boyfriend police officer that you are putting together the evidence. Let the evidence come out when you file a Complaint for a Peace Order. But first: consult with an attorney. Do not make the mistake of warning the other side what is coming because you have to make sure you do this absolutely correctly. A Peace Order can cause the other woman a lot of difficulties in her life. Please do not act out of emotion after you read what I am saying because after you consult with an attorney you will know exactly what you must do to protect yourself and your boyfriend from further harm and damage. Stalking is a very serious crime, and this woman is committing the crime of stalking, if everything you have said above is true.

  2. This woman is harassing you. Do not engage her. Consult an attorney because her threats -- and written proof of them -- likely provides good cause for a peace order.
