Debra, Expert

Hello! My name is Debra (formerly known as Legal Ease). Thank you for your question. I'm reviewing it now, and will post back again shortly.

Debra, Expert

I am sorry to hear of this difficult situation.

The police may not to tell this person in your name now but if this were to go to court then your name may be revealed and in any event you would likely have to testify under oath.

If you are afraid for your safety call the police now and tell them that.

Do you see what I mean?

Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.

Customer
Ok this person knows where I live and is not a good person so I'm scared they will come after me
