Calling your ex over-and-over 'just because they won't pick up the phone' when you want to talk to them runs the risk of you being issued a restraining order'. In NJ, one of the issues a Judge hearing a Domestic Violence case has to decide is whether your intent was to harass the person you were calling. This same determination has to be made in regards to you stopping at their home or place of work; you sending them endless text messages; repetitive Facebook (and other social media site) posts you make or comments you leave on their posts; and, other types of unwelcome repetitive attempts to 'let them know' that you are still around after they told you to leave them alone. There may very well be anger or other types of issues that you (or they) have in regards to how the relationship ended; or, child custody, child visitation and/or child support issues that are impacting your attempts to contact that other person. By you taking the 'self-help' steps of continually calling or attempting to contact them you are making a decision, not a mistake. If you use the Court to obtain the relief, whether it is getting your clothing and possessions out of the house, or visiting with your child, you have the backing of the Court on your side and the other person cannot complain about you harassing them. The flip side, is you risking a Final Restraining Order and a criminal conviction for harassment for not using the Court to get what you wanted.
