The Power of a Restraining Order
If you are the victim of abuse, you may file a request for a restraining order. A restraining order may prohibit your spouse or another person from any contact with you and his or her ability to communicate with you by phone, e-mails or letters. In a request for a restraining order, you may also seek orders for child custody, child and spousal support, temporary exclusive use of a family residence or other property, as well as other rights and remedies.
A Restraining Order under the California Domestic Violence Prevention Act may have a serious effect on issues of child custody and visitation, not to mention your job and financial security. If you have been served with a Temporary Restraining Order, you should act quickly to obtain legal representation to defend your rights.
