What you should know is that our excellent restraining order attorneys win a high percentage of cases. This is important because the stakes can be so high. Most restraining orders are CLETS (California Law Enforcement Telecommunications System) Restraining Orders. What this means is that a restraining order being placed on you can result in a major blemish on your record that will come up in background checks and can cause one to lose his/her job or security clearance. Therefore, it is critical that you do not ignore a restraining order that has been filed against you. The stakes are too high. You must fight back with a California restraining attorney.
If you are the victim of domestic violence or abuse, a restraining order may be necessary for your safety. A restraining order is a court order that helps protect people from abuse, either physical or mental. To qualify for a restraining order, a person, one that has had a close relationship with you, had to abuse you in some way, such as hit, kick, follow, harass, etc. A restraining order can help you in many ways. The restrained person can be ordered to stay away from you, your children, and any other household residents, disarm the restrained, pay child support, move out of the house, and other restrictions. A judge can create a restraining order by the next day, sometimes even sooner, at no cost to you. While it is not mandatory, hiring an attorney is recommended, especially if you have children.
