Q. My ex-boyfriend is harrassing me online. I've already taken out 2 protective orders against him, but they have since expired. Does this mean I should get another one?
Dear Juneau Resident,
You definitely should get another protective order if you qualify. I also have another message, I believe from you, that your ex-boyfriend is not only harassing you but also posting negative statements about you for others to read. I haven't seen that activity addressed in a protective order but you could consult AWARE or another legal advisor to see what your options might be.
Almost always the best option is to provide absolutely no response directly to that person. The person's objective is to make you angry or uncomfortable and then feel satisfied about it. It's important not to feed into that.
