They did not as such I was scared and called the police. I wanted them to leave me alone and they refused then continued to verbally threaten me, harass and get in my face when I was near the female. To me this is 100% illegal. Situation was in Cranston, Rhode Island.
"Near the female" situations can be challenging both for humans and their companions. If the situation stops when you are not near the female, avoid being near the female. Free speech does have some limits. Contact your attorney if you are interested in bringing a lawsuit for the "whatever they...Read more »
So the police put a NCO on him because he hit me and now he has a felony. Now we are getting along and he is helping out with my kids. I got accepted into housing and want to add him on my lease so I don’t get in trouble when he’s there all the time. The landlord for low income housing needs... Read more »
You may want to go to the court to explain to the judge that you wish to have the NCO dropped to enable you to enjoy cohabitation and co-parent. If you just really need help with the kids and you are, in fact still in fear of imminent harm that supports a NCO, then you should probably seek the...Read more »

This really is not a civil rights question. But if the house is yours, and she has no ownership interest such as a lease has paid rent, you can probably get a trespass order from the police. Be careful about what you’re doing here. Your sister is still going to be your sister.
I don't see a question here. However, you are a minor, and if you are living at home, your parents are going to have a say as to who can come to their house. And while I understand that affairs of the heart can cause people to do and say many things, a judge is going to be very skeptical about a...Read more »
