Good fences make good neighbors??

Our family is at our witts end with our neighbors. They are an elderly couple, retired and stay home all day.. I would assume peeking out their windows at our every move.. Our neighbors have a 3 year old list of things they have done to us. They have built onto our property by 2 feet (survey to prove it factual), built fences on our property, broken and destroyed our property, calls the city of code enforcement constantly on us.. for things like our gutter run off pointed at his fence, which he built into our gutter run off,... he called the city for our front fence (it was the only way to keep them from trespassing into our yard), he is vulgar, threatening and yells at us any chance he gets. It is sad to even go home anymore. The summer months are awlful because we enjoy being outside and the minute we go outside, so do they. They have called the police for getting grass clippings in their driveway and constantly peeking over our fences. I have gone downtown to talk to the police station and they cant do anything, civil court wont do anything unless I sue.. I cant afford that. I feel like we are all alone in this battle and the city and police wont help us. We are being bullied at our own home. Any help, suggestions?? any other experiences? What are our rights????

There's usually more to stories like these, what did you do to him to start this feud? Huh? Loud parties? Dog pooping in his yard? Did you bang his wife?

Oh wait, did I mention I was a woman? No I didnt bang his wife, our dog goes outside only to potty in a fenced in back yard, and he doesnt bark. We dont do parties either. We are quiet and keep to ourselves. He also has feuds with neighbords on the other side.. But I appreicate your mature response
