My question involves defamation in the state of: Rhode Island
I have a woman that is contacting HUD, SNAP, and my landlord in regards to me in a negative manner. Telling them lies, and causing me to have to defend myself for no reason. She wants me to lose all assistance I worked for over 7 years to obtain in a upfront, above board, legal manner and can't afford to lose. I am a disabled female, it's Saturday afternoon and can't obtain a restraining order until Monday morning. Can I have her arrested for these actions that occur prior to be obtaining a restraining order? I am also worried about her trespassing on my residence and causing possible harm to my property. Please help as soon as you can! Thank you.
