What is a Restraining Order?
A restraining order is a legal document, signed by the judge and certified by the court which orders a person to stop doing certain acts to another. This form of protection is very serious, meaning that if someone doesn’t comply it can result in criminal penalties and possibly other further actions as well.

We have experience in preparing restraining orders and helping people through the court system in all types of restraining orders. Our skills and professionalism help your peace of mind during this emotional process.
Restraining Orders – The Process
Helping people to obtain restraining orders is always top priority with us. Your documents are prepared before other documents in our office so you can get orders quickly. Once the legal documents are presented to the court, hearings for Requests for Restraining Orders in family law court are set right away. For example, in Riverside County, if the documents are filed before noon, a hearing will take place the next morning at 8:30 as long as the other party was given proper notification (a telephone call) and proof is provided to the court. When a restraining order is issued at the emergency hearing, it is temporary until the regular hearing takes place, which is usually about 30 days. Sometimes the court will issue a temporary restraining order without an emergency hearing. At the regular hearing, if a restraining order is issued, it is usually valid for 3 years, but not always.
According to the California Courts, “Domestic violence is abuse or threats of abuse when the person being abused and the abuser are or have been in an intimate relationship (married or domestic partners, are dating or used to date, live or lived together, or have a child together). It is also when the abused person and the abusive person are closely related by blood or by marriage”. There are several steps involved in obtaining a restraining order and specific documents to be prepared, which are numerous if there are also minor children of the parties involved. In addition to preparing the documents and navigating you through the system, we can help you incorporate requests and orders for child custody, child visitation and child support. Due to the seriousness of the situation, our domestic violence restraining order requests are our top priority.
