Restraining orders are powerful legal tools that should not be taken lightly.
These orders can be used to protect yourself or your loved ones, or can be used by a spouse against you in a divorce or custody battle. At the law firm of Holstrom, Block & Parke, APLC, our Southern California family law attorneys can help you determine your best course of legal action depending on the unique circumstances of your case.
Once in place, a restraining order can protect you from the individual who is threatening you by legally establishing limits to the amount of contact he or she may have with you. You do not have to wait for a physical attack to seek a restraining order; even if you are experiencing harassment, you can take legal action to protect yourself.
If you have been falsely accused of domestic violence, stalking, or any other form of harassment and are faced with a restraining order, it is important that you take the right legal steps to protect your rights. It is absolutely critical that even if you disagree with the order, you follow its terms until the matter has been resolved in court. Even if your accuser consents to your actions, violating the terms of a DVRO can result in criminal charges.
Restraining orders can limit your ability to have contact with children or other family members, force you to take alternate routes to abide by the terms of the DVRO, bar you from visiting certain places, and destroy your reputation.
For individuals who exercise their second amendment rights, restraining orders even affect gun ownership. Those who have are subject to a DVRO must relinquish their firearms and are forbidden from buying or owning a gun.
Additionally, having a restraining order against you impacts your chances at a fair outcome in a divorce or child custody proceeding. Having even a temporary order on your record could have lifelong consequences for you and your children. That's why it's vital to call a lawyer when you're facing a (potentially permanent) restraining order.
