My understanding is that it's tough to get a restraining order under the best of circumstances. You're fresh off the boat, and you're working illegally -- not the best of circumstances.coladag wrote:The first legal question is if I can get a restraining order as a foreigner without his ARC.

Got any friends you can stay with?

From her reaction, it sounds more like you split up with her. Word to the wise: it's best to wait until you get your ARC before breaking off a relationship.
I'm not worried about the ARC, I have a job lined up and staying with a person I don't want to be with should really have nothing to do with being legal. Also, she is my ex-girlfriend not wife and we hadn't even been dating for very long.
By the way, you refer to her as merely your "ex". Is she an ex-gf or a separated wife? To get the best advice, you'll need to specify.

If you want out of the relationship but she won't leave, then you must leave.
I would find a new place and don't tell her where you live. This should solve your problem.
If you have no lease, you can just walk away.
Gonna cost you anyway you look at it.
I don't think a restraining order or anything the courts/police can do is going to help.
You could also hire some gangsters to scare her a bit, but that will also cost you.
I suggest growing a pair and learn how to handle your woman. this is the free solution to the problem.
BTW, How are you going to get an ARC without a written lease? This is an absolute necessity.
