I know your question is important to you and I will be giving it the time and attention it deserves.
Sometimes responses and replies take time, so I ask you to be courteous and patient to allow me the time to type answers to you and also to others. At times I may even have to do some research.
I am sorry to hear of this difficult situation.
What are the police saying?
When is that last time she did something to you?
Here is the answer to your query. Please do not hesitate to ask any follow up questions related to this response and know that I will respond as soon as I can.
There is another route you can go if the police will not assist you.
You can attend at the Justice of the Peace's office in any criminal court.
You simply walk in, tell the JP's secretary what you want to do, and he/she will give you a form to fill out (basic information and your allegations).
Then after you hand it in, you'll speak to the JP and explain the basis for the allegations.
Then if the JP decides there is enough to lay the information, he/she will schedule a pre-enquete (relatively brief in camera hearing to determine whether or not to proceed).
Be prepared to bring any evidence or witnesses you might have for that.
Does that help?
No but she will be charged and placed under a no contact order. I don't know exactly how that would work but it will help for sure.
Well this is what I'm confused about because if she was already charged and placed under no contact order why isn't she being jailed when she is still harassing you?
No it's not justified. They have to arrest her when she's breaching her conditions. Every time you see this happen I think you have to call 911. And if the police don't take this seriously maybe you need a lawyer to contact the police so that they see this is not going to go away. She needs to be stopped.
I mean your own independent lawyer.
Have a free consultation if possible first and ask the lawyer what they think they can do for you. The hope is they would speak to the police and also send the neighbour a letter threatening court.
You can contact the Law Society and use their Lawyer Referral Service. You will be given the name of a lawyer and can consult with the lawyer and the first half hour will be free.
