A restraining order is a court order that can protect you from being physically abused, threatened, stalked or harassed. Sometimes, it can also give you custody of your children, order visitation, provide child support, spousal support and attorney fees. Under certain circumstances it can require the abuser to move out of your home.
If there is a threat of violence or recent physical violence, you need the help of an attorney to keep you safe and get you the protection you deserve. We can help you determine the level and type of protection necessary, and get you back on a path to safety. Family law attorneys understand how to manage sensitive and dangerous situations. The circumstances surrounding restraining orders are often very complex. You should never have to live in fear of violence.
If a restraining order is placed against you and you have children, California Law may prevent you from having custody of your children or owning a gun. You need to obtain the best legal representation to assist you in protecting your rights. Being accused of something that you have not done can ruin your reputation and your life.
