A Costa Mesa Harassment Lawyer Providing The Protection Our Clients Need

Restraining orders in California can take various forms, protecting individuals against civil harassment, dependent adult abuse or workplace violence. In the area of divorce and family law, domestic violence restraining orders are needed to provide protection from an allegedly abusive spouse.

Emergency protective orders (EPOs) are pursued when the responding police officer believes that imminent danger of domestic violence exists. Temporary restraining orders (TROs) are similar, but last longer than EPOs. Hearings for either order are scheduled prior to their expiration.

The issuance of a permanent restraining order (PRO) can last up to three years. The court may grant an extension if necessary after a hearing is held.
