I had a baby shower in November, where my stepmom started a fight with my mom. I left the shower after physically holding my own father and stepmother away from my mom and grandmother. I ended up in the ER with a nice bill afterwards to check on baby. For two or three weeks they continually texted me calling me names and degrading me. I tried to talk it out and got nowhere. My dad then suspended my phone, 6 months pregnant and living 8 hours from home. I terminated my line and got my own. They then started emailing me instead, harassing my mother for money, and texting my fiancée. They are now harassing my cousin as well. What can I do to prevent them from showing up at my house? I live in NC and they live in PA
The procedure you need is a Civil No Contact Order under NCGS 50C https://www.ncleg.net/enactedlegislation/statutes/html/bychapter/chapter_50c.html In your courthouse the persons who process Domestic violence Orders can assist you. Sorry to hear of this uncivilized behavior. I don't understand it. To proceed you will need an address in Pennsylvania for service and to have the sheriff in their county serve the order in time for hearing within 10 days.
