How Does a Restraining Order Stop Domestic Violence?

Various statutes exist to protect victims of domestic violence, so if you are being abused by a family member or domestic partner, there is a way to stop it. You can put an end to the abuse and harassment you are experiencing by petitioning for a restraining order.

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

Individuals who violate a restraining order can face serious criminal penalties, including jail time, expensive fines, or both. So, if you take out a restraining order, you can have confidence that it will keep you safe!

What Is Considered Domestic Violence?

The types of domestic violence that can be carried out include:

  • Physical Abuse: Includes any physical contact that is intended to inflict harm and/or injury—slapping, punching, throwing objects, etc.
  • Sexual Abuse: Includes any situation in which unwanted sexual acts are forced upon another, whether through verbal threats or physical force.
  • Verbal Abuse: Includes any verbal threats or aggressive verbal language—threatening physical harm, derogatory remarks, constant criticism, etc.
  • Emotional Abuse: Includes any behavior that is meant to embarrass, control, degrade, or isolate the victim—blackmailing, undermining another's self-esteem, etc.
  • Economic Abuse: Includes withholding another's economic resources in an attempt to maintain control over the victim.

If you have experienced any of this kind of behavior from a domestic partner and/or member of your household, you may have grounds to file for a restraining order. If you feel like your life is in danger, then you should not hesitate to take legal action with a Corona domestic violence lawyer.

Reasonable evidence of domestic violence could also be grounds for loss of custody or loss of visitation. Those who pose a risk to their children may be banned from seeing them along with losing parental responsibility.

  • Emergency Protective Orders
  • Domestic Violence Temporary Restraining Orders (TRO or DVRO)

Confront False Accusations of Domestic Violence

Conversely, those who have been falsely accused of domestic violence may be worried that they will lose custody or visitation of their children, along with getting cut short in the process of divorce. You have every right to contest a restraining order. Initially, a temporary restraining order will be issued until both parties can appear in court to testify.

A restraining order is a legally-binding contract, but it is not tantamount to a criminal conviction. Those who have been issued restraining orders may only be accused of a crime if they violate the terms of a restraining order.
