is no reason why you should have to take this to court and have the associated
the police anything until exactly what he is doing ask them to warn him under
the protection from harassment act.
There is no reason why the police should not deal with this. In addition, you
are a victim of crime and he is now intimidating a victim. The fact that he is
your son, is immaterial.
you may need to speak to a senior police officer and tell the police's officer
that you have been told this by a solicitor.
cannot simply make an application to court for a restraining order unless you
have formally warned him that if he does not leave you alone, you will make the
application and ask the court to award costs against him. In that respect, you
might be better getting a solicitor to write to him and, if he then ignores it,
then make the court application.
there is clearly some urgency with this, if the solicitor attaches a certificate
of urgency, this could being court and you could have an interim order, pending
a full hearing, within 48 hours. You need to make a note of dates and times and
actions in support of the application.
