If you have been the victim of domestic abuse or violence, you should not hesitate to act swiftly to protect you and your children from any further harm. California protective order laws allow for victims to petition the court in order to obtain peace of mind through a protective order. These orders essentially require the person they are levied against to remain a certain distance away from them for a designated amount of time.

The state of California recognizes three different types of protective orders, each can be obtained depending on your whether or not your situation qualifies you. Our attorneys can help you plead your case before the court to obtain the protection you need.
Violating a protective order is a criminally-punishable offense for the person who has the order filed against them. They will almost certainly be arrested and charged with a misdemeanor, but could also be given a contempt of court charge and even a felony if circumstances warrant it. They will also be required to pay a fine of up to $2,000 and serve up to a year in jail. These penalties can also apply if the abuser violates any of the provisions of your protective order, including any orders not to contact, refusal to move out, or refusal to surrender firearms they may own.
