I am recently broken up with my ex-fiancee, and she will not stop bothering me via it be phone, e-mail or through talking to me in person about giving her money to pay for the dog I bought for her for our anniversary (which was 2 days before I found out she started looking for guys online). I want the messages to stop, and I have politely requested her to leave me alone. I have then moved on to attempting to block her number via a call filter installed on my phone, so she uses another number. I have tried blocking her e-mail but anyone can get another free e-mail address. Her mother is also hell-bent on getting money from me too.
I'd like to know the proper way to successfully get a restraining order against the two of them. Both they, and I live in Suffolk County NY. I'm looking to make sure they are not permitted to contact me, or my family, and are not permitted near my home, job, or school. Do I simply call the local police department, and complain, or is there a more efficient method that doesn't involve wasting an officer's time? Thank you.
