In NY. My husband's ex-wife is a wacko. She recently drove past our house when we were supposed to be away (actually she stopped and looked around without leaving the vehicle and then slowly drove by checking things out. When she saw my husband at the front door she took off in a hurry.)
A change in circumstances had us home, so we both caught her in the act. I don't know what she was planning, but I am nervous that I will come home with a brick through my window or have my mail stolen. I called the police, but they couldn't do anything without an order of protection. Can I get one to prevent her from driving past my house. She hasn't threatened us - YET. She has proven to be a very distrubed woman as she has been divorced for 8 years and still harbors noticeable resentment towards my husband.
And if I file one against her, can she turn around and do the same to me even though I never go near her residence or even the vicinty. She is a compulsive liar and I don't want to open Pandora's Box since they have a child together. I just don't want to have to worry about my house when I am not home or that she is doing something criminal (after being thrown out of her marital residence prior to the divorce, she STOLE everything and trashed the place - so she's not what one would call a model citizen!)
