Restraining Order Law
If you are a victim of being stalked; harassed; sexually assaulted; threatened, physically abused, and/or financially abused, there are California Restraining Order laws that exist to protect you.
There are different types of Civil restraining orders, each with its own eligibility requirements and steps to obtain that restraining order.
The three main types of restraining orders are:
- Domestic Violence Restraining Order
- Civil Harassment Restraining Order
- Elder or Dependent Adult Abuse Restraining Order
What is a Domestic Violence Restraining Order?
Victims of domestic violence may request a domestic violence restraining order if the victim and his or her abuser are in a domestic relationship or are closely related.
Relationships between the victim and the abuser that are eligible for domestic violence restraining orders include: 1) a married couple; 2) domestic partners; 3) divorces; 4) dating or formerly dating couples; couples who share a child or children; 5) couples that live together or formerly resided with one another (A roommate scenario is insufficient to qualify as a domestic relationship.).
What is a Civil Harassment Restraining Order?
It is a court order that helps protect people from harassment. Civil Harassment Restraining Orders are different from Domestic Violence Restraining Orders in that the person harassing is not related to a person you have dated or who are closely related.
A person may seek protection if you are worried about your safety because you are being: stalked; harassed; sexually assaulted; threatened; or there have been acts of violence against you by someone with whom you do not have an intimate or familial relationship, such as a neighbor or roommate, great-grandparent, great-grandchild, niece/nephew, aunt/uncle, cousin, classmate, etc.
What is an Elder Abuse Restraining Order?
An elder (age 65 or older) or dependent adult (ages 18-64 with physical and/or mental disabilities) abuse restraining order applies to a person seeking a protective order who falls within the definition of an elder or dependent adult, and a victim of physical or financial abuse; neglect, abandonment, or isolation; treatment that has been physically or mentally harmful to the elder or dependent adult; a deprived by a caregiver of goods or services you needed to avoid harm or suffering, or emotionally abused by a caregiver.
Although the California Restraining Order laws are designed for a layperson to handle themselves, the timelines, procedures, and hearings are fast-paced and an experienced lawyer can help ensure success.
