Have a Restraining Order Against You?

If you have been issued a restraining order against you, it is not something to take lightly, as violating the restraining order can result in serious consequences.

Restraining orders can prohibit a person from:

  • Contacting an individual, including calling, emailing, texting, etc.
  • Being near a person's place of work, residence, or vehicle.
  • Entering an individual's home (and even ordering them to move out).

You must abide by all the terms of the restraining order and try to keep records of your whereabouts and even potential witnesses in the event you are accused of violating an order. Talk to an attorney if you have any questions on how you should proceed.

Discuss Your Domestic Violence Defense with a Lawyer

Domestic violence cases can involve very complex circumstances and high emotional stakes. Additionally, California law allows for individuals to be prosecuted with domestic violence even if alleged victims "drop" their charges or otherwise don't want a defendant to be charged. Given the complexities of domestic violence cases and the serious consequences on the line, working with experienced and proven criminal attorneys is crucial.
