Q: Hello, I have a family member harassing me during her work hours sending texts after I have informed her to stop.

I have informed her to stop contacting me multiple times to stop contacted her employer since this was done during work hours and they seem to not care. Is there anything that can be done? This is in Illinois. These messages are being sent to me during work hours.

A: The Illinois Domestic Violence Act permits the court to issue an order of protection that can prohibit harassers from harassing victims. You could file one and appear in domestic violence court.
