I (non-American) broke up with an ex (an American) a few months ago. She is threatening me over phone, email and texts to kill, ruin and behead me. She said she is filling a case in the court, I don't know for what and will have me imprisoned. I don't know what is she doing.
Is there anything I can do to let the courts know that she is doing this? I don't want to sue or hurt her but I will if I have to. What should I do? I don't want her making a case against me for God knows what.
I have audio recordings of her threatening to kill me and my descendants. What should I do?
You can contact the police and file a criminal police report as to her behavior. The ADA may then decide to press criminal charges as to her actions. As a result of that proceeding you may receive a criminal court order of protection. In the alternative (or in conjunction) you can file a Family Offense Petition in Family Court to request civil court order of protection. You should consider having an attorney's input before moving forward.
This advice is not meant to create an attorney-client relationship and is a general answer to the question posed.
Her actions constitute criminal offenses. You may wish to tell her that unless she ceases, you will file a complaint with the police. If she doesn't, decide whether you want to pursue that option.
At this point, I see no significant monetary damages on your part, although you may claim something for emotional distress thereby creating a basis for a civil suit.
Contact the police and give them copies of the recordings. The prosecutor may help you get a restraining order as part of the criminal case against her.
