Never underestimate the strength of a woman. (I'm a petite 5'2" woman but am one of the strongest in my kickboxing class.) Also, there's a reason we have the phrase "hell hath no fury like a woman scorned". Anyway, hope that your injuries heal fast and that you can laugh about this soon.
Maybe not, but at least if she violates it she'll be arrested and go to jail. Although, she already broke into their house, and with the smashed shin, committed assault. She should already be arrested and in jail. However, the restraining order is good in case, or for when, she gets out.
This would be the best time to start the paperwork and file for a restraining order. If she's willing to break into your house there's no telling how much damage she might end up doing. Good on you guys getting her out! I hope you guys stay safe.
#5 those papers don't do anything against people this crazy, they just break them anyway. If someone is enough of a stalker that they are willing to break the law this easily then a piece of paper stating that BY LAW that person has to stay away then the restraining order is useless.
That's very true. The point in this case is not to deter her -although that would be a very happy solution- it is to show evidence you have made it very clear you do not want her around because she poses a threat to you and your family. Sometimes they're ignored, but for the most part they're a very good way to set up your defenses in the long term.
To be fair, if your dad laid a hand on her, she could very easily construe an assault charge.
