Filing Restraining Orders to Protect You

Restraining orderIf you have been the victim of abuse, we can immediately seek a restraining order to prevent further harmful acts. A restraining order can prohibit an abuser from contacting you or your children before a divorce or family law case goes to trial. A temporary restraining order will typically be approved once a petition has been filed, and a hearing will then be set to determine if the restraining order will become permanent. Our Beverly Hills domestic violence lawyers can advise and represent you throughout the entire process, and you can rely on us for legal and emotional support every step of the way.

What Do You Need for a Restraining Order in California?

In order to file for a restraining order in California, you will need to go to the California courts to complete the necessary forms (or have a Beverly Hills domestic violence attorney complete them for you). When filling out the form, you will need to explain why you are requesting protection from the other party. Once complete, you will need to file the forms with the court clerk along with a filing fee (unless the fee has been waived).

Do You Have To Pay for a Restraining Order in California?

You may have to pay a filing fee when you file for a restraining order in California. However, if your request mentions that there has been stalking, violence, or threats of violence, you likely will not be required to pay the fee. In other cases, you may have to. If you cannot afford the fees, you can ask for a fee waiver.

How Long Does a Restraining Order Last?

The duration of the restraining order depends on the type. Temporary restraining orders (TROs) usually last between 20 and 25 days, depending on when the court date has been scheduled. After the court date, a judge may enter a “permanent” restraining order. However, they are not actually permanent, since they last about five years. At the end of the five years, you can request a new restraining order if you feel that you still need protection.
