The Legal Representation You Need When Filing a Restraining Order Against an Abuser

California protective orders, including restraining orders, can effectively shield you from your domestic abuser, stalker, or anyone else who means you harm. Restraining orders are legally binding orders that forbid your abuser from contacting you, approaching you, visiting your home, or attempting to reach you in any way. Nobody deserves to feel threatened, which is why it is important to seek legal help and guidance if you are in need of protection.

Most people seek restraining orders when they are going through a divorce or a separation and feel threatened by their future exes. Situations involving domestic violence, spousal abuse, or child abuse often lead victims to secure their safety through the use of protective orders. With a properly secured restraining order, the abusive spouse will not be allowed to make any contact or come within a certain proximity of the individual or their property. If someone ignores a restraining order, he or she could be charged with hefty fines, or they may even serve time in jail.

How to File A Restraining Order in Riverside County

The first step in the process of filing a restraining order in Riverside County is submitting a petition. Our attorney can help you with that process, as well as choosing which type of order of protection to apply for. In most cases, this is followed by an immediate temporary restraining order by the court to protect you until your court hearing, which usually takes place in 2 to 3 weeks. The judge will then determine if a permanent restraining order should be issued. A permanent order of protection can last anywhere between one and three years.
