    Oh my goodness, you need to call "911" and report all of this to the police.

    The police will come and help you.

    If you can't call "911", ask a neighbor to call for you.

    If you can't use a phone, how were you able to post this message on our board using an AT&T mobile device?

    You can also use your device to call "911", even if it isn't an active device.

    If things are as you describe, someone is not going to like what a judge dispenses.

    Start by documenting everything harmful she/he has ever done in chronological order.

    Organize it as if you telling the sordid tale to your best friend.

    If you have supporting proof: pictures, emails, texts, eye witnesses; add them where they apply.

    Once you do that, take it to your local police and ask about filing a complaint.

    Then take all of that to the county court that can provide you with your protection order.

    Hint: the police will know exactly where you can file for the order of protection, so ask.

    You need to have proof - texts, emails, witnesses. Any kind of proof.

    To get a temporary protection order it doesn't usually take much. You fill out the form, they take you to a judge and usually that judge will approve it. Then in two weeks you have a hearing for the permanent order (usually for a year). That is where you need more of the evidence. AND the respondent (the person you file the order against) has the opportunity to be there and refute the order if he or she chooses.
