My ex-wife's husband and her were investigated for domestic violence last year. No charges were filed but the investigator made a report and since then the husband has been showing up to my daughter's school, doctor visits, sending hostile text messages and trying to intimidate me. He has not directly threatened me as he knows I'm often taking video of any encounters. I have been making incident reports and taking pics in public places of anyone present with my ex. What can I do to put distance between us? I am concerned that he will turn violent.
You can file for a civil restraining order. You do not need help from law enforcement to do this. You would need to show the court that the requirements for a civil restraining order (e.g. that this person is a threat) have been met. You can find the instructions and forms for obtaining a restraining order on the Colorado Judicial branch website (try googling "Colorado Judicial self-help forms") or you can speak with a lawyer who would be able to assist you in obtaining a restraining order.
Please remember that legal matters are complex and that even the smallest details can have a great impact on a case. It is always best to meet with an attorney in person to discuss the full details of your case. Furthermore, remember that I am not your attorney. My answers here are for informational purposes only.
