yes but this does not stop its being going on now for 10years
You allege theft. Was that reported to the police also?
How exactly is he blackmailing you?
How old is he? Does he live with you?
yes he was put in prison for 6wks and he came out 3 days age and now its started again he keeps coming round to my home shouting ,knocking at the door demanding money and phoning all the time no he does not live with me he is homeless and jobless he is 25years old and this has been going on for 10years
Thereis no reason why you should have to take this to court and have the associatedexpenses, yourself.
Contactthe police anything until exactly what he is doing ask them to warn him underthe protection from harassment act.There is no reason why the police should not deal with this. In addition, youare a victim of crime and he is now intimidating a victim. The fact that he isyour son, is immaterial.
Ultimately,you may need to speak to a senior police officer and tell the police's officerthat you have been told this by a solicitor.
Youcannot simply make an application to court for a restraining order unless youhave formally warned him that if he does not leave you alone, you will make theapplication and ask the court to award costs against him. In that respect, youmight be better getting a solicitor to write to him and, if he then ignores it,then make the court application.
Asthere is clearly some urgency with this, if the solicitor attaches a certificateof urgency, this could being court and you could have an interim order, pendinga full hearing, within 48 hours. You need to make a note of dates and times andactions in support of the application.
