Stalking!
Stalking generally refers to harassing or threatening behavior that an individual engages in repeatedly, such as following a person (either in person or online), appearing at a person’s home or place of business, making harassing phone calls, leaving written messages or objects, using a third party to get insight or information on a person.
What is Harassment?
When a person’s behaviour is so extreme, abusive or rude that it causes harm to another person or makes another person believe that s/he will suffer harm. This may include mental, psychological, physical or financial harm. Harassment happens when a person does something that may make another person feel uncomfortable, threatened or unsafe.
Evidence
Having evidence is essential when you need to either open a case against an abuser or defend yourself and/or claims. By keeping evidence of everything you have the opportunity to use it when you need it. Being prepared gives you peace of mind.
Harassment Order
If you’re a victim of abusive or threatening behaviour by someone other than a person that’s living with you, or with whom you have a domestic relationship, you can apply for a Harassment Order.
Protection Orders
A Protection order is an order issued by a court at your request, ordering a person with whom you have or had a domestic relationship, to stop the abuse. It may also prevent the person from getting help from any other person to commit such acts. An interim protection order can also be issued at any time of the day or night for your protection.
