Thanks for your question. I am a solicitor in Scotland. What you have to do here is instruct your solicitor to send this woman a cease and desist letter demanding that she stops stalking and sending abusive messages. Make sure you keep the messages as evidence because if she ignores the letter you can then take this to court for an interdict, which is a court order saying she has to stay away and a protection from harassment order which is as it is described. The thing about these orders is that if they are breached the court can hold her in contempt and has the power to fine, and in extreme cases imprison, the person concerned. Rarely does it get to that stage and the cease and desist letter is often enough to stop this behaviour. Happy to discuss. I hope that helps. Please leave a positive rating so that I am credited for my time. I see that you requested a phone call. The system will let you do that if you need any point clarified although it is at an additional cost. I am happy to continue in writing or by phone as you think necessary.
