Welcome to JA
With regards ***** ***** offer pay monthly please note the court have powers to make an order for you to pay monthly. The sum will decided by the court after they have listened to what you can afford to pay on a monthly basis.
Do you understand what I have stated if yes I will proceed to the discuss the harassment issue?
Please also ignore the automated call request when I am typing the answer.
Please chase up the court and ask for an update.
With regards ***** ***** harassment i suggest you apply to the local county court for a civil injunction. This is a court remedy that orders the woman to stop such conduct and failing to do so can amount to a criminal offence.
However, before you do this, send the person a cease and desist letter to warn him of your intentions unless he stops.
Please give the person 14 days to stop the conduct.
You can obtain a “cease and desist” letter template from www.lawdepot.co.uk. That said you can a draft letter by your self too but ensure you make it known it is a cease and desist letter and he stops the conduct(ensure you spell out the conduct too) in question. Further it will be wise to remind her that her conducts falls within the definition given within Section 1 of the Protection from Harassment Act 1997 which is as unwanted conduct designed to cause the victim alarm or distress”. Hopefully the letter may well be enough to stop the conduct as an injunction is a serious legal remedy.
Assuming the conduct continues after you send the letter then it would be up to you whether you want to apply for the injunction. My advice be to instruct a local solicitor to assist you with completing the relevant forms. Alternatively if you to do it your self then
you will need to complete the form N16a and send to your county court. You will need to prepare a witness statement to accompany the form. Within the statement you will need to detail the history of the issues with the harasser for the Judge as they will not know what this person is like and what they have done to you unless you describe it.
The court will list a hearing where you attend and ask the District Judge for an order and the injunction. The application would be made under Section 1 of the Protection from Harassment Act 1997.

Yes you can because from what you described such conduct falls within the harassment laws.
You can also consider reporting the matter to the police if such conduct continues after the letter as harassment is a criminal offence too.
Do you understand what I have stated if not please let me know
You can include it because that's part of the conduct that is causing you distress which you want her to stop.
You can consider making an application for an injunction. However my advice will be get a solicitor to do this for you given its complexity. Alternatively you can consider reporting the matter to the police as harassment is also a criminal offence too.
