Types of Restraining Orders

Restraining orders serve as vital tools for safeguarding individuals from abusive situations and ensuring their safety and well-being. Below, we outline the various types of restraining orders, including their purposes and procedures, to provide clarity and guidance to those in need of legal protection. Understanding these distinctions can empower individuals to take the necessary steps toward securing their safety and seeking justice.

  • Domestic Violence Restraining Order: Issued in family court, it aims to protect victims of domestic violence. The relationship between the parties matters, and the order can restrict conduct, prohibit abuse, and enforce no-contact provisions.

  • Temporary Restraining Order (Ex Parte): This order can be granted without notice to the other party. It provides immediate protection and typically lasts until a hearing is scheduled.

  • Orders That May Be Issued: These include orders that restrict conduct, protect other individuals, prevent abuse, and enforce stay-away provisions. If you have questions about orders that may be issued, talk to one of our restraining order lawyers.

Violating a Restraining Order

  • Violating a California restraining order is considered a “wobbler” offense. Depending on the circumstances, it can be charged as either a misdemeanor or a felony.

  • A misdemeanor violation can lead to up to one year in jail and a fine of up to $1,000. Some defendants may receive probation.

  • If the violation is charged as a felony, the penalties are more severe and can include imprisonment in state prison. The exact penalties for a felony violation can vary depending on the specific circumstances of the case, including the defendant's criminal history and the nature of the violation.

  • It's important to note that even a misdemeanor violation can have long-lasting consequences, including a criminal record that can impact employment, housing, and other aspects of life. As such, it's crucial to take any restraining order seriously and to seek legal advice from a restraining order attorney if you have questions or concerns about how to comply with its terms.

Protect Yourself from Harm or Harassment

Restraining orders serve as a vital shield against harm and harassment. When you obtain a restraining order, it establishes legal boundaries that the other party must respect. These orders can:

  • Prevent Contact: They prohibit the person named in the order from contacting you directly or indirectly. This includes physical presence, phone calls, emails, texts, and social media messages.

  • Safeguard Your Safety: By keeping the restrained person away, restraining orders create a buffer zone, reducing the risk of physical harm or emotional distress.

  • Address Specific Behaviors: The order can specify actions to avoid, such as staying away from your home, workplace, or children’s school.

  • Provide Legal Recourse: If the restrained person violates the order, you can report it to law enforcement, leading to potential legal consequences for them. Remember, seeking professional legal advice is crucial when pursuing a restraining order.
