I have blocked him on email, facebook and from calling my phone. I have asked him not to contact me. Do I have any grounds to get a no contact order? I believe he is currently in jail at the moment out of state.
A family violence protection order is common in harassment cases, but there seem to be two problems with that in your case: violence and family. You have to at least be living together or be in a meretricious relationship. If he is in jail, I don't think that applies. Him being in jail also hurts you on the second point and that is you must be in reasonable fear of actual violence. Harassing phone calls in and of themselves, don't qualify. It depends on what he is saying during those calls. You may want to talk to your local police department and see what options they would suggest.

By answering this question, there is no established attorney/client priviledge with Rohan Law, PC. Therefore you cannot rely solely on this information to form the basis of a legal opinion regarding your rights and responsibilities. If you believe that your case requires additional attention, you should contract an attorney to represent you directly.
Based on the facts in your question, it doesn't appear that a Family Violence temporary Protective Order (TPO) would be appropriate. If he continues to repeatedly contact you and you can prove that you have told him not to contact you -- you may be able to establish the crime of Harassing Phone Calls. It is a misdemeanor crime in Georgia but a violation of the usual conditions of bond in these cases can bring on much more serious charges. A good place to start is to file police reports detailing the harassment by the ex-boyfriend. I hope this information is helpful. Good Luck!
