Restraining Order Attorney in San Diego

Securing Your Safety & Advocating for Your Interests

Restraining orders are intended to protect an individual from harassment or violence. In family law situations, a restraining order can prevent violence from escalating and possibly resulting in assault. If you need help with a difficult situation involving domestic violence, consult with our trusted restraining order lawyer in San Diego. At Embry Family Law P.C., we are committed to protecting you and your loved ones.

Each case is unique, so it is best to speak directly with a lawyer about your situation. Call (619) 485-6476 for a free consultation.

When Courts Issue Restraining Orders

Generally, a restraining order will only be issued when there is proven harassment, threats against you and your children, or a history of domestic abuse. Courts in California may issue different types of restraining orders depending on the specifics of the situation. A knowledgeable domestic violence attorney can explain each type of restraining order and help you determine which is most appropriate for your situation.

California courts offer:

  • Emergency Protective Orders (EPO)
  • Domestic Violence Temporary Restraining Orders (TRO)
  • Civil Harassment Restraining Orders
  • Criminal Protective Orders

We will make sure the necessary documentation is filed with the evidence needed to obtain the proper restraining order for your situation. When a judge orders a restraining order and the named individual fails to comply, that party may face legal penalties.

Don’t Wait to Get Legal Advice

Restraining order cases move relatively quickly, so make sure you have an experienced restraining order attorney in San Diego to answer your questions and guide you through the process. Typically, a hearing will be held within two to four weeks, as having a restraining order in place may affect the rights of one party. We offer a free consultation, either in person or by telephone, so you can learn how a restraining order may affect your situation.
