How Can a Restraining Order Help Me?
A restraining order can be used to protect you against a wide range of
unwanted threatening or harassing behaviors. Restraining orders in California
may include provisions to prohibit a person’s personal conduct,
order them to maintain a certain distance away from a protected person,
or force them to move out from where the protected person lives.
Restraining orders can be used to prohibit another person from:
- Contacting you by mail or phone
- Abusing or threatening you or your family
- Entering your home or visiting your place of work
While restraining orders may be pursued in connection with a wide range
of threatening situations, they are frequently necessary as a means of
protecting victims of
domestic violence. Individuals who are subjected to physical, emotional, verbal, nonverbal,
financial, or spiritual abuse by a spouse or domestic partner may petition
with the courts for a restraining order to cease their mistreatment. Individuals
who violate a restraining order can face serious criminal penalties, including
jail time, expensive fines, or both. Our firm’s attorneys can represent
you in court and maximize your chances of securing an order of protection
against your aggressor.
