I’ve had a relationship end a little over 2 years now. He is very physically and mentally abusive. This relationship lasted 2 months and I broke it off with him. There were some ties to him still; by a handwritten agreement between both of us, that he was to pay me the $4K we settled on.
I’ve told him many times to never contact me unless he has my money. He had his friends stalk me, proven by his text messages and photo of me. After I’m in a relationship with someone else, he keeps contacting me. He used his ex-wife’s number to call me, since he was blocked by me. She put him up to it, because she wanted him to leave her alone. She’s deathly afraid of him and won’t do anything out of fear for herself or their kid.
My boyfriend heard the whole conversation on speaker. I told him then to never contact me again. A month or two later he contacts me. Told him once again to stop or I’m forced to file a report. He has created many Fake FB accounts, used different numbers to contact me and just 2 days ago he used a new fake FB. His own friends say he has severe mental issues.
I have proof I told him to leave me alone. I do not contact him. What can I do? He WILL NOT stop!
You may qualify for a Family Violence Protective Order based on the Texas Family Code and a Stalking Protective Order based on Chapter 7A of the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure. Your local DA's office probably has more experience with the former than the latter. The advantage of the Stalking protective order is that it can last a lifetime rather than having to be renewed every two years.
A private attorney can file and prosecute an application for protective order but there is a decent chance that the local DA's office would agree to take the case and do the attorney work at no cost to you.
