One more thing I would like to add; put up a high privacy file fence just on the part of your property that meets the property next to yours that people pass through. I wont name the property because of privacy but it belongs to a business. If you put that high fence right there and run it far enough so people can't get around it and post no trespassing sings on both sides people wont be able to get through and will have to turn around.

Good luck.

I would suggest contacting your local PD and asking to talk to a community liaison if they have one. If not, ask to speak to the commanding officer and then request a meeting. But before that, I think you need to determine who actually owns the property. From the limited information you've supplied, it doesn't appear to actually be owned by you.

It may be a Right of Way that was deeded to you when you bought your house. You need to determine what rights you have to this property. It's a little fuzzy with your explanation, so I'd want to know who "legally" has rights to this property.

As far as how to defend yourself, that too will depend on the ownership of said property. But once you travel off of your property, you will have opened up a completely different can of worms.

I recommend anyone in your situation to at the very least read the book titled, The Law Of Self Defense by Andrew Branca. I would say that when you left your property and confronted that person, you are then considered the aggressor. Regardless, if you brandish a firearm, you are now in unchartered territory. My guess would be that you will at the very least be detained if not charged.

Is the juice worth the squeeze to even think about pulling a firearm to prevent a trespasser from property that may or may not be owned by you?

My suggestion would be to find a lawyer who is on official/unofficial retainer.

Also, getting legal advice on the internet is worth exactly what you paid for it. Nothing I've said is to be considered legal advice and I cannot be held responsible for thi or any other opinion.

I wish you luck, but you're asking the wrong group of people for legal advice.
