Standing Up For Victims Of Domestic Violence

Restraining Orders In California

A restraining order (also known as a protective order) is a court order that prohibits a person from carrying out certain actions, typically contacting or coming near a specified person.

There are various types of restraining orders, including domestic violence restraining orders (DVROs), which often play a role in divorce litigation. Courts can issue restraining orders for other reasons, including elder abuse, dependent adult abuse, civil harassment and workplace violence.

Fighting False Allegations

As hard as we work to protect victims of domestic violence, we understand that false abuse allegations are not uncommon. In fact, it is not unheard of for unscrupulous parties to accuse their spouses of abuse to gain an edge in divorce or custody proceedings. We aggressively fight such tactics. Such actions not only destroy the reputations of good people, but can poison the legal process and make it more difficult for true victims to find the relief they need and deserve.
