As if a failed relationship is not hard enough on everyone involved, it is more common that you would think where one of those two people is harassing, threatening, or abusing the other. At the time of your separation or divorce, the only thing you probably want to focus on is “getting out” and moving on. However, when the person you want to escape from refuses to comply, that is where the headache of ending a rocky, tumultuous relationship can go very, very wrong.
What’s the Point?
A restraining order can seem like a pointless legal action that might just upset the daunting person even more. Understandably, that is the last thing you may want to do, unless you have magical powers and can erase them from your atmosphere. Telling them if they come near you they will be in trouble with the law is probably your best option.
