Online stalking is a form of harassment that, which may seem innocent enough, can establish fear in the victim. Because this kind of behaviour is so often related to domestic relationships, cyber stalking is often considered a family law issue, although like domestic violence, it involves criminal law as well.
Many states have laws in place that make online stalking or harassment illegal. This is especially true if the messages cause the victim to fear for the safety of themselves and as well as their family.
In some cases, cyber stalking is handled on the civil level, but sometimes it can be a felony.
