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.

What Do Restraining Orders Do?

A restraining order can order a restrained person to:

  • Not contact or go near you or your children
  • Avoid your work, your home, or your children’s school
  • Move out of your house
  • Not possess a gun
  • Follow custody and visitation orders
  • Release/return certain property
  • Not make changes to insurance policies

Once a restraining order has been issued by the court, it is entered into a statewide computer system that all law enforcement has access to.

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 consultations, either in person or by telephone, so you can learn how a restraining order may affect your situation.

    Founding Attorney

    Ben was born and raised in Henderson, Kentucky, and attended the University of Kentucky. He did not leave Kentucky until he moved to San Diego to attend law school in 2006. Ben grew up on his father’s farm, doing the things that most “farm boys” do: Plowing the fields, tending the cattle, and harvesting crops, all while leaving enough time to fish in the pond. Working for his father is what gave Ben the work ethic he has today. Despite the fact that farming was in his blood, Ben decided early on ...
