Stone Mountain, GA asked in Criminal Law, Family Law, Civil Rights and Domestic Violence for Georgia

Q: Good Morning, I have questions about facebook messages I have been receiving from an unwanted source.

This person has been texting me on Facebook messenger for several weeks. I have asked them to leave me alone and it has not stopped. This person is also reaching out to my spouse with the intentions on creating havoc in our household. She calls his job, text his phone, and also reaching out to his mother. I'm at a point where this is really causing extreme stress. What can I do? Can I legally file a claim for her to leave us alone? Please help.

A: You can block people on facebook. If your husband feels he is being stalked, he can apply for a protective order.

A: My colleague is correct, you can block that person on Facebook and they will not be able to contact you through there at all. Just go to their page and from the drop down menu on their personal page you can click to "block" the person. If the person continues to contact you unwanted and your husband feels stalked you can take legal action. -Homer P. Jordan IV, Esq. 404-620-1558 HomerJordan.com
