How long do I have to file a police report for harassment? Two months ago, my ex followed me to my car at my place of employment, yelled and screamed and wouldn't leave me alone when I asked her to leave. I drove away while she was hysterical. She has been texting me and calling me on my phone since. I want to file a police report for the stalking she did 2 months ago in case she starts becoming physically violent. Did I wait too long? Is it too late?

You can attempt to file the report, but the police department may decline to take it. Even if they do accept the report and take your statement, it will be subject to attack as to credibility due to the delay in reporting. The foregoing is intended as legal information concerning the question asked, but is not intended as legal advice upon which the requesting party may rely in guiding their actions. Rather, the requesting party should consult an attorney for a personal consultation and advice for a full consideration of their situation and rendition of legal advice. Additionally, by providing this general information I am not accepting any representation of the requesting party and I am specifically declining to form an attorney-client relationship with the requesting party unless agreed to later after further consultation and agreement.

Areas of practice listed are are areas of concentration in my practice. I am not board certified in any of the listed areas, and by listing them and describing my practice I am merely describing my experience and the nature of my practice.
